Richard Wainwright is living a double existence; a well-to-do man by day, and a cunning burglar at night. He worships his daughter, Pauline, who for charity performs many kindly acts. One James Stevens, a man old in crime, is a maker of criminals. Wainwright has done his full share of wrong, for besides being an expert cracksman, he has led others astray, including the two Rosson boys, who live with their young sister. She knows what they are doing and vainly endeavors to reform them. She, too, does many little acts of kindness, and one day while she is visiting a poor widow, .she meets Pauline, who learns that her heart is breaking because she cannot reclaim her dear brothers. Pauline promises to help her and she appeals to the brothers but they tell her that they cannot live on the scanty wages they can earn. They tell her that if she lands Jim Stevens in prison, she will do more good than by trying to reform them. She determines to do this. When the brothers have gone, the sister tells Pauline that "John Dick" (Wainwright) makes the boys steal. Pauline also resolves to see him and appeal to him. She discovers their haunts and tries to get an interview with "John Dick." Failing in this she goes to Jim Stevens, and gaining admittance she begs him to give up his calling. He has her turned out. That night she goes to Stevens' office and opens the door with a hairpin, a trick shown her by her father. She gets in and hunts for evidence and is interrupted by the entrance of someone else. She comes face to face with the intruder and learns for the first time that her father is the noted cracksman. While she is in a faint, the father gets the papers she wants and places them near her. On coming to she finds them and takes them to the editor of the dally paper. Wainwright persuades the "boys" to quit the crooked game and goes away. Pauline hears that Stevens has been arrested, and has shot himself. She finds a note from her father, telling her that by the time he returns, the law will have been satisfied and that he loves her better than life. She has done her duty and will await his return.

The Animal

Reid, "The Animal," a man of great strength and brutal impulse, …
Reid, "The Animal," a man of great strength and brutal impulse, arouses a certain admiration within Miss Bush, who at a distance, has witnessed his fearless battle with an opponent of unusual proportional advantages. Neilan, her escort, a young man of more sensitive nature, is repulsed by the struggle and turns away with the girl, who reluctantly follows. They are later overtaken by Reid, who has previously made overtures to Miss Bush. He puts her escort to flight and gathers her unwillingly in his firm embrace. She gradually yields to his command and consents to be his wife. Another contrast of extreme nature is effected through the gentle wooing of Toddles by her lover, which also gives way to marriage. A year elapses and a child is born unto Toddles. The loving couple fondle their own but for a short time, before Heaven recalls it and they are left to mourn its death. In the rude hut of the forceful Reid and submissive wife an infant opens its eyes for the first time upon the world. Reid, who is attracted by the excitement in his home, endeavors to enter but is denied admission by the nurse, and he moodily wanders away in thought until at last his gaze is attracted by the simple grave in which Toddles and her husband's joys and hopes are slumbering. He halts and from a distance watches the parents' grief, unmoved through lack of comprehension. Upon his return, cheers greet him at a passing tavern as father of a son. He is sullen and dull in understanding; stares perplexedly and goes his way moodily. At his home he is confronted by his own offspring and looks blindly for the cause of the mother love which is now centered upon her nursing child. A fit of jealously is aroused within him and his first impulse is to kill the helpless infant which threatens to spring between them. He pauses to reflect and moodily wanders off, to pause again near the grave to watch the silent prayers of the grief-stricken parents. A sudden thought finds expression within his brutal nature and he slowly retraces his steps. At the cradle of the child he pauses to gather his tiny offspring in his arms and stealthily goes forth to the home of the mournful parents and places it in the arms of Toddles, who fondles it dearly to her breast in hysterical joy, as Reid silently takes his leave. Upon his return he finds his wife in an insane frenzy at the loss of her child. He regards her in bewilderment, firmly denying any knowledge of their child. A search is made by sympathetic neighbors of the woods and vicinity but to no avail, while the wife hysterically nurses the empty blanket to her breast, calling for her child. Neilan, her old sweetheart, whose unspoken love has never failed, pleads with the husband to find the child and restore the mother's reason. The husband, at last moved by Neilan's argument, goes to the home of Toddles and forcibly takes his child from her clinging arms and restores it to his grief-stricken wife.

This instinct led them into the other's domain to witness wonders of the earth. So the Jungle Man met the wife of the Man of the Sea.

And thus both the Man of the Sea and the Jungle Man, tired of their excursion and took separate ways to their separate homes, the wanderlust conquered, each harkening to the call of his mate.

How often has life's cup been filled with bitterness because of a promise that should never have been asked nor given? In this touching drama, the central figures are an aged fisherman and his daughter. Naturally the thought uppermost in the old man's heart is the future welfare of his daughter, and he unwisely chooses as a husband for her the man he believes will be the best provider, regardless of the heart interests of the two most vitally concerned, The chosen young fisherman promises the old man to marry the daughter and the fishermaiden calmly tells her lover that she is to many another. Possibly the two young people would have learned to love one another and all would have been well had not the fates willed it otherwise. As it was the beauties of the coast attracted others, and Dan Cupid shot his darts in diverse directions. Complications arose and the fishermaiden soon found her heart too full for utterance.
