When Grace Langdon undertook her trip of mingled adventure and pleasure to Mexico, she was unaware of the dangers that break out sporadically in that disturbed land. She and her party, however, had not been amongst the dons long before there was trouble between the Mexicans and the few Americans there. The situation was complicated by the fact that the chief of the Mexican revolutionaries fell in love with Grace. The United States consul was a friend of the girl and sought to obtain outside assistance by telegraph. In this he was frustrated by the revolutionary leader, who shot him in the leg as he was operating the telegraph wires. The result was that Grace and her friends were captured by the revolutionaries and taken aboard a Mexican gunboat. But Grace had not neglected her fiancé in San Francisco; she had wired to him. So down came the gallant fellow with all speed and as luck would have it his yacht arrived in the disturbed waters just when the plight of Grace and her friends was at its darkest. By the aid of wireless telegraphy, her fiancé was enabled to communicate with the U.S.S. Ohio and make known the dangers in which the party of American citizens were placed by the threatening Mexicans. The Ohio's men thereupon got busy and after putting the Mexican rebels to rout, released the prisoners and incidentally hastened the happy marriage of Grace Langdon and her lover.

Adele, who is older and more experienced, decides to stay and watch over them. To better effect her plan she hires a hall and opens a dancing academy, thereby affording her sisters a chance to enjoy their favorite pastime under her eye. She is grieved to see that Mary is receiving the attentions of one of the most worthless scoundrels that frequents the place.

His pleas for restitution have been received with a deaf ear by his uncle, until he is forced to resort to some extreme measure in order to make uncle loosen up. A great idea strikes him and he at once proceeds to put it into effect by writing the following letter: "Dear Uncle, Since you have cut off my allowance I face starvation. Unless we can make peace before eight o'clock I shall commit suicide and the family name will be disgraced."

Recovering himself, he wants to know the cause of this rash attempt at self-slaughter, and Alice tells him in detail of the inconstancy of Florence and Tony. At first Mack is wild with rage, but on second thought, he realizes that Florence is not worth worrying over as far as he is concerned, and convinces Alice of the same of Tony, so then and there a new vaudeville team is formed, with prospects of something even more serious. Mack invites Alice to go to the ball with him, which invitation she most willingly accepts. At the ball the two couples meet and for a moment it looks as if there is going to be something doing.

No matter how he tried, he never could muster up sufficient courage to propose, despite the fact that Betty always endeavored to help him out. An idea! He writes his proposal, and invents a sentimental code of signals. The letter reads: "If you will accept me, wear red roses; if you are in doubt, the pink. If you do not love me and reject me, wear the white." He then repairs to the florist's and purchases the three shades of roses, dispatching them by messenger to his lady's residence. The messenger, however, is a dime novel fiend, and while engrossed in the thrills of a harrowing story, loses the box of flowers which are picked up by another boy. A policeman sees this boy with the box of flowers, and as he cannot give a clear account he runs him in. In the meantime, the novel reader is in despair over his loss until a modern Good Samaritan seeing the boy in tears offers to help him when he hears his tale of woe.

The real box arrives at the station house, where is encountered a wise judge, aye! a modern Solomon, who after investigating the details of the case, sends the officer with the flowers to the address given on the box and letter, thus averting a heart tragedy.

Eva and Blanche are two orphan sisters who live with their aunt. They are inseparable, each apparently living for the other. They vow that come what will they will never separate. However, when Eva, the eldest, is betrothed to Jack, Blanche, who is but ten years old, seriously objects, fearing that Eva's marriage would surely be the means of their parting one from the other. The wedding takes place and Eva declares that Blanche shall live with her and her husband. It went well until Jack realized that Blanche was dividing Eva's attentions, and in consequence became very much annoyed, despite his endeavors to feel thoroughly satisfied with conditions. Jack finds a third person not so pleasant, and Blanche's solicitation of Eva's attentions occasions several serious quarrels, and she begins to feel that she is in the way. On one occasion, when their tiff is rather more stormy than usual, Blanche is an unseen spectator. The poor little girl now realizes the truth and then decides to go back to her aunt's house to live, leaving the following note to explain her departure: "Darling Sister, I am going back to Auntie's. I am sorry I was a bother to you and Jack. I love you both very much, that is why I can't stay. Blanche." Upon finding this note the young couple are sorry for the way they have acted towards the child, and Jack persuades Eva to go to her aunt's and bring his sister-in-law back. Blanche, however, is not to be moved, and Eva returns in grief without her.

This decides her finally, and making her way back to her aunt's, she enters to stay for all time. A long time after that she is told by her aunt to get ready to visit Eva. Arriving there, she finds a new playmate, a little baby girl.

Edith is a salesgirl in the department store and toils …
Edith is a salesgirl in the department store and toils most arduously to eke the lives of her decrepit mother and blind father. Quasi-poverty is their condition, as Edith's meager pittance is all there is to depend on for the existence. Sadly she compares her own loneliness with the condition of her store-mates, as she views them passing by with their sweethearts, lighthearted and happy. Hence it is small wonder that she feels highly flattered and pleased at the attentions of a traveling repertoire manager who enters the store advertising his show, and presents Edith with two complimentary tickets for that evening's performance. The next day the manager appears again at the store and invites her to take a stroll with him. This is the first attention the poor girl has ever experienced, and when the manager tries to persuade her to go away with him it is a supreme struggle with inclination that prevents her leaving her old folks. The manager leaves her with ill-concealed displeasure and the next time he visits the store he tries to win her through jealousy by flirting with one of the other girls. This has the effect, and she yields to the great temptation of meeting him after store hours. With renewed endeavor he persuades her and she at last consents to go away with him, leaving a letter for her parents to the effect that she is tired of the drudgery, and longing for pleasure, has gone away. Arriving at the railroad station, where she is to meet her tempter, she sees a party of old folks on their way to the almshouse. "Remember thy father and thy mother." And she does remember, seeing them most vividly in her mind's eye. This thought so impels that she at last realizes that she is playing with fire, and turning on her heel, runs back home to find that the letter she bad written is gone from the table where she left it. However, her fears are allayed when she finds the letter in possession of her blind father, who, of course, cannot read it. Taking it and tearing it to bits, she folds her dear old papa in her arms as her mother enters to share in the embrace. Her eyes opened to the falseness of the world, she is now more than ever determined to perform her sacrificial duty of caring for the old folks.

In an East Side tenement there lived an old couple. The husband was a cigar maker, but becoming feeble from age, he is discharged. Back to his cheerless home he comes, where his faithful wife tries to buoy up his spirits. The old man realizes however, that he has lived out his usefulness and appreciates the reality of a future of absolute want, short though it may be. The awful aspect quite undoes him, and he is taken seriously ill. It is indeed a house of sorrow. No money with which to buy food or medicine, the poor couple resort to pawnshops to raise a little money on their household effects, they both being too proud to ask aid from anyone, and there were those in the house who would have been glad to do it. There is a young settlement doctor who administers to the wants of the infirm, but he is kept in ignorance of this case, so the old man goes unattended. A pretty little slavey, who works about the house is the first one to know of the poor couple's sad plight. She in her innocent way has fallen desperately in love with the young doctor, who though meeting her often as he comes and goes, is quite unaware of the interest he has excited. The sincere girl decks herself out in her best dress hoping to fascinate him, but sad to relate, he doesn't notice it. While thus attired she hears the sorrowing of the poor woman, and is moved to a determination to help, but how. She has nothing to spare herself. An idea! And though it hurts her she takes to the pawnshop this one best dress and raises fifty cents on it which she forces the poor woman to take. This is real charity. At length, when her husband is sinking slowly, the poor woman rushes to the City Charity Society. Here we find the red tape of charity. They must make rigid investigation for fear they may give aid to the unworthy. Well, by the time they get through their investigation, the poor man is dead. At this moment the young doctor just hears of the case and learns through finding the pawn ticket the slavey drops, what a jewel in the rough she is, as contrasted with the other women of the Charity Society. Consequently, the girl has made a stronger though mute appeal to him than did her efforts when togged out in her finery.

The most satisfying and pleasurable sensation experienced is "getting even," especially where one has been held up to ridicule before a jeering mob. Such was the reguerdon of Bud, the Kid of the Mining Camp, after suffering gross humiliation at the hands of the other cowboys and miners. Miss Lucy, the belle of the camp, is introduced to the Kid, and makes an impression; the Kid becomes quite seriously inclined towards her. The boys, more in the spirit of jest than chagrin, poke fun at him; call him the baby, and end with Jim Blake spanking him. Needless to say the Kid is mortified and swears to get square. A masque ball is to be held that night, so Bud plans his revenge. All tog out in grotesque costumes, a high old time is imminent, for it is fair to assume that the society folk of the camp will be well represented. Bud, however, feigns a toothache and will not go. Dressed up in carnival duds, the gang leaves the shack for the pavilion. All gone. Bud jumps from his bunk, and dresses up in swell female attire, the effect being marvelous. He presents such a striking appearance that he is the belle of the ball. Jim Blake becomes deeply smitten, and after leading him on Bud soon has Jim on his knees, pouring out his soul's devotion, regardless of the snickerings of the motley mob around them. There Jim kneels, declaring his undying love for the fair charmer, as only a lion-hearted cowboy can, when Bud removes his hat and wig. "Holy "Smoke!" Well it is safe to say that Mr. James Blake will not attend any more spanking bees where the Kid is a victim.

Parker is wooed by young Oliver Sylvester, who is loved by her in return. Her all-absorbing dream is of the day when she will become the happy bride of Oliver. Fortune, however, is unkind to her family and dire straits force her to harken to the proposal of Old Squire Calvin Cartwright, an honest tender-natured farmer of considerable means. Marriage with the Squire would assure Elizabeth of her widowed mother's comfort, hence she consents and is married. Oliver does not seem to realize the truth of the conditions and persistently seeks the poor girl, with a view of alluring her from her aged husband. What a terrible position for the girl, who really loves the fellow and so has not the power to repulse him firmly, her romantic dreams rising, almost taunting, in her mind. While Oliver is pleading earnestly, the Squire enters and fully appreciating her plight, makes the sacrifice, bidding her go with her heart's desire, as he feels he is too old to make her happy and forget. Elizabeth is astounded, and under the influence of her young lover, whom she deludedly believes the soul of honor, accepts the proposed surrender, and leaves with Oliver. They have not gone far when he seizes the weak, trembling girl in his arms and passionately kisses her. That kiss is the awakening. She is aroused from her lethargy and is now fully alive to her sense of duty. Casting her lover aside, she dashes madly to her mother's home, not daring to re-enter that of her husband. The Squire, however, although he seemed impassive at the time, sank into despondency when she was gone, and would have died from grief, had not Elizabeth been persuaded to return to him she had now learned to love.

In a Bowery dance-hall we find Mary Rollins associated with those poor souls who walk in the Valley of the Shadow of Death. One of their number is a youth whose mother appears and tries to get him away from the place, but appeals are in vain and she goes to the little mission, where she finds Rev. John Stanton, the pastor, who is the good shepherd willing to seek the lost one. Stanton's entrance in the dance hall occasions vile derision from the mob, and, indeed, they would have assaulted him, had he not cowed them by an exhibition of his forced aggressiveness. Here he meets Mary, through whose glance he sees a pure soul which is being forced into the quagmire of crime by conditions. Before leaving with the boy, Stanton hands around cards on which is printed Psalm 23. These lines impress her so deeply that she is drawn to the little mission to hear the words of encouragement preached by the kindly spirited Mr. Stanton. How strongly do the words of holy writ, "Let them be ashamed who transgress without cause," appeal to her when she arrives at her home to find herself compelled to join her father and brother in a burglary; The injunction "Thou shalt not steal" never seemed so terrible as now. However, she must bow to the inevitable and go. By singular coincidence the place selected are the apartments of Rev. Mr. Stanton. Mary and her brother are in the room when surprised by the minister, who was at first Inclined to hand them over to the police, but that something good in her sad face made him desist, and be allows them to go. Mary had secured the minister's watch and chain, with which she retraces her steps and returns. Mr. Stanton takes this opportunity to plead with her to give up her present life and go the better way, and although she breathes the prayer, "Show me Thy ways, O Lord; teach me Thy paths," she feels how weak she is, but the good man encourages her by telling her of the omnipotence of God's grace, so she fights on, and we finally find her in the little chapel, her arms stretched forth and face upturned with the promise, "I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever," thus ending one of the most beautiful picture subjects ever produced.

The Slave

The noble sacrifice of a devoted wife and mother. The pages …
The noble sacrifice of a devoted wife and mother. The pages of Roman history do not chronicle a more noble deed of self-sacrifice than that set forth in this Biograph story, which shows how a devoted Roman wife and mother went to the very extreme of mental, moral and manual endurance for the sake of her beloved ones. Nerada, a beautiful Roman girl, was much sought by lovers, among whom was Deletius, a wealthy patrician, but she clings to the white rose of purity, rejects the nobleman's gifts and proposals to accept one of her own honest caste, the poor young sculptor, Alachus, whom she marries. Some years later we visit the atelier of Alachus to find that bitter poverty is the lot of the little Roman family, now increased by a child, who is lying ill unto death. The poor sculptor enters, returning from a tiresome, fruitless journey trying to sell his statues, but the very gods seem to conspire, and he is now face to face with that wolverine specter, starvation. Footsore and weak from hunger he sinks down upon the couch fainting. Brave little Nerada, in sore distress, realizes that their life's blood is slowly but surely ebbing for want of nourishment. In desperation she decides to make the sacrifice, though appalling, odious and heart-breaking it may be, by going to the slave mart and sold as a slave that the lives of her husband and child may be saved by the proceeds thereof. Meanwhile, during all these years, Deletius has suffered keenly, for he truly and honestly loved the girl Nerada, and since the time of her rejection of his love, which he then thought, like on many other occasions, was but a fleeting fancy, life was dull, he appears bored and annoyed. The fawning of his slaves and attendant seemed hollow mockery. Nothing seemed possible to lift him out of the slough of ennui, until his secretary conceived the idea of attending the slave mart in the hope of obtaining a new face that might interest him. Entering about the time the slave master puts Nerada on the stand, he is at once determined to procure the beautiful girl feeling sure that here is a means of dissipating the lethargy of his master, Deletius. After spirited bidding, Nerada is sold to the secretary, and is about to be taken to the palace of his master, when Alachus rushes in, having learned of his wife's action. But it is too late; she is another's by right of purchase, so he returns heart-broken to his studio to receive another and more severe blow, his child is dead. Assisted by his friend and neighbor he carries out the precious faded flower for burial. When Nerada is ushered into the presence of her new master, the amazement is mutual. Deletius, at first, is inclined to gloat, but when he hears the desperate, heart-rending appeal of the noble girl, he realizes what a precious jewel true, self-sacrificing love is, so the white rose of purity remains unsullied, and he decides to hand her back to her beloved ones. Repairing to the home of Alachus, what a pitiable scene greets them. Grief has shattered the reason of the poor sculptor, but at the sight of Nerada the veil of darkness slowly fades and the dawn appears.
