Dora, the daughter of a wealthy man, marries a good looking young fellow from the country who has made an auspicious start in New York business life. Having won the girl by trickery, he proceeds to reveal a baseness of disposition which makes the life of his young wife a terrible burden. He becomes a drunkard and ill-treats his wife and baby child. Dora resents his cruelty and he robs her of the child, surreptitiously conveying it to his mother and then, himself, going away to sea on a fishing schooner. Dora, bereft of husband and child, becomes a prey to grief. She is in all essentials a widow, for the news comes that her vicious young husband was drowned at sea. Fresh sufferings await the girl. Concealing her identity she makes her way to the fishing village where her husband was born; becomes the paying guest of his mother; recognizes her own child, and excites the love of her husband's brother, now a clergyman. Dora's troubles are about to recommence with undiminished severity. Her husband married her under a false name, so she is in ignorance of his relatives. And in this state of ignorance she lends a willing ear to the wooing of the Rev. John St. John, her late husband's brother. The wedding ceremony is about to take place when a storm at sea arises; a ship in distress is sighted; there is a call to man the life-boat, and Dora's fiancé volunteers. Among the rescued there is Dora's legal husband, Frank. Frank re-asserts his claim to wife and child; grows jealous of his brother and once more becomes a drunkard. One of his New York reprobate companions appears to demand money. There is a quarrel and both men are killed. The sinful man has reaped as he sowed and like so many of his kind has made others suffer for his misdeeds, particularly the fond girl who married him.
