His frail but patient wife and baby boy are packed into the prairie schooner and the journey is started. Booze's brutality becomes worse as the days pass, and soon his wife dies, leaving little Joe to the mercy of his drunken father. After a crude burial they resume the journey northward. They come upon a party of renegade Indians, and Booze decides to leave the boy with them. He effects a trade and little Joe becomes the property of the tribe, while Booze goes on in his search for gold. Tonoma, an old squaw, takes a fancy to the child and befriends him. Two years pass by. Little Joe is generally disliked by the tribe and is forced to endure many hardships. Finally he runs away. Wandering to the river bottom, he is found by Larry Tompkins, a big-hearted miner. Tompkins hears the boy's story and buys him from the tribe. Seeing old Tonoma's affection for the child, he makes another trade for the squaw, and the three start on the long trail northward to Larry's mine. Time passes on, Larry feels happy in his responsibility, and his hitherto rough shack takes on the air of a well-cared-for home. By coincidence Booze Marcy calls at the shack one day in an effort to secure Larry's mine. Larry refuses to sell his valuable possession. Marcy notices the boy and squaw and recognizes his son, little Joe. Failing to secure the mine, Marcy secures an order from the court, which gives him possession of his child. This action almost breaks poor Larry's heart, for he has grown to love the boy. Booze again starts in his brutal abuse toward the child. Big-hearted Larry cannot stand for this and rather than leave the child to the mercy of his degenerate father, he gives Booze a quit-claim deed to his mine and takes little Joe forever unto himself.

The Shrinking Rawhide

In the carefree days of …
In the carefree days of California, "before the Gringoes came," the blood of caballero and senorita ran hot and the little god of love was forever on the rampage in that tempting field. Jealousies flared up with brilliant suddenness, back in the fandango times, and jilted lovers often took awful revenge on their rivals. To the early Spanish-Californians, intrigue was what made life worth living; and in the photoplay, "The Shrinking Rawhide," the spirit of the time is most dramatically displayed. A pompous, middle-aged alcalde, or judge, seeks the hand of beautiful Mercedes, daughter of the rich Don Enrique, but Mercedes, of course, loves a younger and poorer gentleman, Juan by name. But Mercedes, being somewhat of a coquette, does not let Juan know all at once how much she loves him, and her teasing manner at the brilliant fandango at Don Enrique's home, when she flirts outrageously with the stupid alcalde during the "Sombrero" dance, brings down a lot of trouble onto the heads of all concerned. The alcalde, finally freed from his pleasant belief that Mercedes would marry him, concocts a terrible scheme for doing away with Juan. He bargains with the chief of a wild Indian tribe, with whom he has had some shady dealings in the past, to capture Juan as the latter rides to San Diego with a message from the Padre at the mission; conduct him to the desert, and there subject him to the awful rawhide torture. When a man is staked down with rawhide thongs, and water is thrown on the rawhide, it gradually contracts in the heat of the sun until the victim is strangled. How Juan is saved from this horrible death by his sweetheart is one of the most thrilling scenes ever thrown on the screen.

Claus Valerius, a Roman patrician, wounded at the head of his Legion, came to his country home to recuperate, accompanied by his friend Epicurus, an old Roman voluptuary. Loitering about his beautiful grounds one day, he came upon one of his servants, a young female slave, so deeply engrossed in reading from a scroll that she was entirely unconscious of his presence Curious at seeing so much knowledge in a young girl, he asked her to read her tablets and found her to belong to that strange new sect called Christians. He talked much with her and became interested as the beauties of her faith were unfolded to him, and he realized its spirituality and unselfishness, especially when contrasted with the sodden materialism of old Epicurus, who wished to have her whipped. One day as he slept on a bench in the garden, a great tarantula crept fearfully close to his neck. The slave girl, at the risk of her life, dashed it to the ground and more than ever Valerius wondered at the Christian spirit of self-sacrifice. To put her to the test, he agreed with Epicurus that her life should be threatened if she did not sacrifice to Venus, and she was willing to die by torture rather than do so. More and more the sweet influence of the girl grew upon Valerius and the greedy old Epicurus, seeing how things were going, hastened back to Rome to tell Emperor Caligula, secure the forfeiture of his estates, and so feather his own nest. Realizing at last that he loved the girl, Valerius called her to him and wished to confer upon her the honor of concubinage, but to his surprise, she esteemed it not an honor but an ignominy, and confessing her love for him, preferred death to shame. At last love, pure and whole, conquered him and he sought her out to tell her that he would marry her according to her Christian rites. But it was too late, Epicurus and a soldier, bearing the mandate of Caligula approached. Even now they triumphed over the cruelty of the Emperor by dying in each other's arms.

Charley Wise with a Waldorf appetite on a beany salary finds himself growing unpopular with his landlord as well as other creditors. In fact the sighing breezes seem to whisper "Charley it's your move." So together with Pete, his valet, they decide upon a visit to the country to spend a few days with the rich old uncle. Upon their arrival they find Uncle Jim and Sarah are just planning a trip to Europe and the timely arrival of Charley renders it unnecessary to close up the home as he is placed in full charge with faithful Pete as his assistant and Jim and Sarah are off for the other side. Charles repairs to the race track and donates the remaining fragments of his bank roll, to the other man's better judgment. Pete hits upon a plan to open the palatial home of the uncle as a sanitarium and thus collect a few of the shining shekels that health seekers are always anxious to let loose of. Accordingly an ad is inserted in the daily papers, a sign put over the door, and the rooms are all numbered in regular order, per city hotel fashion. The patients begin to flock in like children to a nickel show. All sorts, ages, sizes, suffering from every known and unknown malady from Reno-it is to raving maniac. Pete was collecting in advance and the place in a few short hours looked more like a castle garden of Blackville Island than a country home. The money was rolling in so fast that Chas. and Pete almost went into hysteria. Just then a telegram arrives from 'Frisco from Uncle Jim saying that Aunt Sarah had lost her necklace and was returning home that night to find it. To clear the house for her coming was no small job and they encounter all kinds of trouble, compelled to return their money, which has a telling effect on Charles' ambitions. No sooner than this part of the program was completed a second message arrives saying the necklace had been found and they were off for Europe. Charles had no time to rejoice over the finding of the pearls; he was too busy thinking about the money he had found necessary to return to his sanitarium patients.

It was the anniversary of his wife's birth, and she, womanlike, did not fail to impress the fact upon her husband's mind as he departed at his usually early hour for his customary day's work. A bit excited over the prospect of presenting his better half with a gift befitting the occasion, he loses his balance as he steps out of the front door and rolls pell-mell down a flight of six steps to the street. Picking himself up, he boards a street car, and arriving at his office he goes through his daily routine of business. At the close of office hours he repairs to John Post & Co.'s crockery establishment, and after much cogitation and repeated questioning, purchases a rather handsome jardinière. Delighted with his choice and anticipating the caress he will receive in return, he again takes a car, this time for home. As he seats himself be is accosted by an old friend. After a reminiscent talk Jones arrives at his destination and alights, forgetting his jardinière. The car speeds on. Poor Jones, recovering his wits and realizing that he dare not return home without some token, betakes himself to the same store and purchases another jardinière. Again en route to his car, while passing a grocery store Jones is hailed by another old acquaintance. In the good fellowship of this accidental meeting, Jones absentmindedly places his wife's present on the rear end of the grocery wagon nearby. Thereupon the driver departs with his wagon and is out of sight before Jones realizes what has occurred. He gives chase, but to no avail. He glances nervously at his watch. Exasperated and overheated, he rushes back to the store, and to the amazement of the proprietor purchases his third jardinière. This time he is determined to get safely home; no friend shall balk his way. His car is in sight, when his attention is attracted by a heated altercation between a lady and a taxicab driver, she claiming that she is being overcharged. Now Jones was ever of a chivalrous tendency, and, upon being requested to decide the dispute, proceeds to do so, after first placing his precious parcel on the sidewalk near the cab. A few words, and with a satisfied feeling of having accomplished an heroic deed, Jones reaches for his jardinière, but to his consternation finds that the chauffeur has mistaken it for the property of the occupant of the taxicab, and jardinière and taxicab were "over the hills and far away." Half-crazed with his repeated misfortunes, he rushes back to the same store. The clerk is dumbfounded at the reappearance of this monomaniac on jardinières, but sells him another. Poor Jones, his very soul distorted by his anticipated reception of a late arrival home on this eventful day, dashes madly for his car, when he is startled by a woman who clutches him, not fondly, but too strongly, and screams into his ears "For God's sake, help me; my husband is killing my mother!" Much against his will, unfortunate Mr. Jones is urged into an apartment house. Inside the house he finds himself battling for life, while he is chased madly around the room by a fiend incarnate, who wields an ax with a dexterity so accurate that Jones decidedly disapproves of accuracy. The woman and her mother flee from the house while he, poor man, makes a hurried departure, smashing his jardinière and screaming anathemas on all birthdays. Bruised, tattered and heartsick, be again slowly wends his way to the now so familiar store. "Another of the same kind, please." he meekly requests, he at last gets on a car safely. The car is crowded. A workman enters carrying a package, places it next to that of Jones' jardinière, and he takes a seat beside our friend. At last Jones reaches his destination, and. grabbing the wrong parcel, alights. He enters his dining-room, much relieved, and. inscribing a loving message to his wife, he places it beside what he believes to be his well-earned jardinière. Calling Mrs. Jones, he points with pride to his gift. She embraces him fondly, after reading his words of affection, truly meant but unfortunately so inappropriate. For as she discloses the article so carefully wrapped, lo and behold! it is a workingman's teapot, black with soot. Poor Mrs. Jones, expectant all day, resents what she considers a practical joke, and belabors her husband with words well-nigh unspeakable, and leaves the room, vowing that henceforth he is no husband of hers and that she will return to her mother, never again to be called wife by such as Jones. He, amazed and crestfallen, and disgruntled with the world and himself, swears that birthdays should never exist.
