"Waffles," the waitress at …
"Waffles," the waitress at "Coffee Dan's" hash-house, is selected by Bert Gallagher and Clara Johnstone, a pair of crooks, to be represented as a missing heiress whose story they have read about in the papers. "Waffles" herself believes the story, as she was orphaned early and remembers little of her childhood, and by adroit coaching is able to convince the estate's none too bright lawyers of the validity of her claim. With this unlimited money, poor little "Waffles" nevertheless has only three desires: to buy the little restaurant for her old benefactor, Shorty Olson, to publish the music written by her lover, Carl Miller, a young, eccentric, absent-minded musical genius, and to adopt the baby that a Mrs. O'Shaughnessy is too poor to care for. But "Waffles" establishes Shorty Olson as chef in her mansion, and Miller is a frequent caller until Mrs. Johnstone in secret convinces him that it is his duty to give up the girl who is destined for high society. Without explaining to "Waffles," he discontinues his visits. Mrs. Johnstone is thus able to induce "Waffles" to promise to marry the crook, Gallagher, but just before the ceremony old Shorty Olson overhears a dispute between Gallagher and a gangster over loot, and thus discovers Gallagher's real character. Shorty Olson is caught eavesdropping, and the crooks shut him into the garage. Carl Miller has been mooning at the house of his lost love, and sees Shorty Olson put into the garage. He goes over and knocks out the gangster on guard and the liberated Shorty goes for the police and Carl goes for the marriage service, which has just begun. "Waffles" sees his face at the window and faints. She is revived and the service is begun again when Carl forces his way in and battles the bridegroom. The police arrive just in time, and the crooks go to jail. The lawyer comes with the real heiress, and "Waffles" goes back to the hash house. For the crooks' arrest the three are given a reward of $1,500, so Shorty Olson buys "Coffee Dan's." Carl publishes his music, and "Waffles" adopts Mrs. O'Shaughnessy's baby.

Felix, while excavating under the cabin he is building for his bride-to-be, strikes water, and builds a well directly beneath the kitchen. He is so busy hurrying the cabin to completion that he has little time to see his sweetheart. Julie's father has taken a young city man, off to a hunting trip, to board, and the motherless, ignorant little Julie is no match for his allurements. Felix, on one of his Sunday visits, meets the hunter, but his suspicions are not aroused. Brookes leaves early one morning before Julie is up, pleading urgent business to Old André. When Julie finds he is gone, she is face to face with the world-old problem. Afraid to confess to her stern father and unsuspecting lover, she flees to the woods, intent on self-destruction. Her lover, worried and puzzled by her strange behavior, follows in time to prevent her from suicide. In desperation she confesses her guilt. The outraged lover swears vengeance upon her betrayer, but his love for the girl is unchanged and he insists upon marrying her at once. The sacrifice proves futile, for slanderous tongues wag, and Julie is convinced that Felix can never live down her sin. Biding her time, she resolves upon self-destruction as the only solution. Felix starts for the village to match some heavy iron spikes. He is barely gone before Julie attempts to carry out her designs. Finding the gun empty and the revolver in Felix's possession, she hurls herself into the well beneath the kitchen. Felix has returned for a forgotten article, and plunges in after her. He gets a foothold on the jagged rocks of the wall, fastens the well rope about Julie's waist and starts to climb up, when the rope breaks and he is left floundering in the water with his unconscious wife. He gets his foothold again, fastens the rope about her shoulders, drives one of the heavy spikes into the plaster, and in this way reaches the swinging shelf at the top of the well on which the butter, etc., is kept. He rescues the girl after a struggle. Very soon after this a boy is born, and Felix has an aversion for the baby, and rushes forth into the woods, bent upon slaying Brookes. Twenty years later, Jules, a sturdy handsome youth, is supporting Felix with his earnings as guide at a new summer hotel. Through an envious guide he learns the story of his mother's life, which Felix had kept from him. Demanding the truth from Felix, the latter tells Julie's story to her son. Jules vows to be avenged when Felix is no longer a daily care. Three years later, Robert Brookes brings his wife and son, Robert, to the old haunts, locating at the hotel. Brookes accidentally shoots himself in the arm while out hunting with Robert, and Jules come to their rescue, taking Brookes to the cabin. They leave Felix in charge of Brookes while they rush off for the doctor and to tell Mrs. Brookes of her husband's injury. At the hotel Jules hears the name of the injured man, and recognizes it as his father's. He starts back bent upon revenge, but is intercepted by Robert. In his fury, he tells Robert his father's story. Mrs. Brookes overhears it, in spite of her anguish at the revelation she pleads with Jules until he softens and foregoes his vengeance for her sake. Meanwhile, up in the cabin, Felix has recognized his ancient enemy. His physical infirmities are forgotten as he faces Julie's betrayer. Brookes backs away in terror from the hatred and fury in Felix's face, and steps backward into the open well. Felix rejoices in the workings of destiny, slams down the door, and gives way to his glutted vengeance. When the little party arrives, they find Felix gloating over his enemy's death. He falls lifeless as they enter. Mrs. Brookes expiates her husband's sin by adopting his illegitimate son, and giving him the comforts rightfully his.

The Poet and the Soldier

Adapted from Trench's …
Adapted from Trench's "Apollo and the Seaman," by permission of Henry Holt and Company, Publishers, New York. "I heard a soldier sing some trifle, Out in the sun-dried veldt, alone; He lay and cleaned his grimy rifle, Idly behind a stone. What grief of love had he to stifle, Basking so idly by his 'stone. That grimy soldier with his rifle, Out in the veldt alone?" The poet finds an answer to his question when, later, he meets the soldier, mortally hurt in the army hospital, and hears his story. He learns of the soldier's courtship and happy married life in an English village: his transfer to a hill garrison in India, where tribesmen have been making trouble; the attempt made by a native rebel to assassinate him as he and his wife sit together in the moonlight; the sacrifice of her own life to save his. Happy in knowing that the period of waiting for his loved one is almost over, the soldier takes the hand of the poet. "If after death, love, comes a waking, And in their camp so dark and still. The men of dust bear bugles breaking, Their halt upon the hill, To me the slow and silver pealing, That then the last high trumpet pours, Shall softer than the dawn come stealing, For, with its call, comes yours."

The Scarlet Letter

Hester Prynne has left Holland in advance of her husband, …
Hester Prynne has left Holland in advance of her husband, Roger, to join the colonists in Salem, Maxx. Roger follows her to the new world but upon landing in New England is captured by Indians and Hester waits for him in vain. There has never been much love in their marriage, Roger being an old man and she a comely young woman. Rev. Arthur Dimmesdale, the handsome Young minister of the Salem community, is revered and beloved by his parishioners. He meets Hester clandestinely and an unlawful love is the result. When Hester is discovered with a baby, a mother but not a wife, she is arrested, tried and condemned to stand upon the public pillory with her child and for the remainder of her life to wear conspicuously on her breast the letter "A." As she stands on the raised platform, the governor of the colony commands her to divulge the name of the father of the child. She refuses. The Rev. Master Dimmesdale is asked to persuade her to reveal her secret. He addresses her, and tells her if she thinks it for the best, to do so. She again refuses. Roger, her husband, has been released by the red men and he appears in Salem on the day of her public disgrace and recognizes her. He signals for her to be silent as the recognition is mutual. A silence for a silence is agreed upon. He takes the name of Roger Chillingworth and, being a physician, is called to prescribe for the suffering minister, knowing him to be the father of Hester's child. The child, Pearl, grows into a beautiful girl and the governor decides that Hester is not the proper person to rear her. Hester in her grief, appeals to the minister and he in turn prevails on the governor to allow her the custody of the child. As time passes the minister is growing weaker and weaker in bodily strength and the guilty secret gives him no peace of mind. Meeting Hester and Little Pearl by accident, he tells the woman of his terrible punishment. She, in love and pity, tears the letter from her breast and proposes that they leave the country together to begin life anew. Little Pearl finds the letter and restores it to Hester and they realize they cannot escape the consequences of their sinning. On a holiday the minister preaches a powerful sermon in the church on the sins of the flesh and the penalty for evil doing. As he appears in the market place, he is cheered by the members of his congregation. He is overcome by emotion as the awful truth is brought home to him that he is a hypocrite. Seeing Hester and Little Pearl standing near, he pulls himself together by a mighty effort and resolves to confess his sins publicly. Taking them by the hands, he slowly and deliberately mounts the pillory, with Hester amazed, and then, to the astonishment of his flock and the loungers standing near, proclaims Pearl as his child and arraigns himself as a sinful teacher. The members of the church are appalled and dumb with astonishment. They cannot comprehend it. Hester smiles through her tears. She will no longer bear the burden of shame alone. The moment has arrived when she is partially vindicated by the self-sacrifice of the sharer of her degradation. The final effort, coupled with years of intense suffering, proves too great a tax on the strength of the minister and he falls dead at the foot of the pillory. Hester supports his head, with tears coursing down her cheeks. The vindication has come, but with it has gone the man she has loved in secret while being subjected to the jeers of her fellows.
