The Baldwins had visited many strange parts of the earth, but never one that was quite so strange as that in which they now found themselves. The innkeeper told them when they set out that morning to visit the rocky fastnesses of Wildman's Land that there was no danger. It is true there were traditions that a queer race of primitive people had at one time inhabited the dark caves of this wonderful region, but no living white man had ever seen them and they were believed to be myths. It was a weird and beautiful prospect that greeted the Baldwins as they reached the point of ascent into the unexplored country. On a grassy knoll they prepared and ate their lunch and then, before commencing the hazardous climb, they rested for a while under the shade of a giant rock. Little Harry, their only child, was romping about and they warned him not to venture too far lest the wild men should catch him. It seemed to Mrs. Baldwin but a moment before that she cautioned the boy and yet now he had disappeared. The anxious mother went in search of him. Far up in the rocks she continued her way, when to her unspeakable terror she perceived that the stories of wild men had been no invention of fancy. Harry was in the clutches of a creature, half beast and half human. Inspired with the courage of desperation, Mrs. Baldwin rushed to the rescue of her offspring, but she was no match for the fierce savage. Beaten back, she fled to her husband for aid. But now the powerful males of the tribe appeared. They attacked the frantic parents from all sides. Mr. Baldwin succeeded in killing three of them, but in the end was overcome and fell a victim to their primitive fury. All this time the wild female clung to little Harry. At last the frenzied mother thought of her child's doll-baby. It was apparent that the female beast was holding Harry as she might have held her own offspring. Perhaps she had lost her own little baby. The doll baby might deceive her. Feverishly Mrs. Baldwin ran back to the camping place, found the doll and returned to the creature who held Harry captive. Casting the doll to the wild woman, Mrs. Baldwin scarcely breathed as she watched the result. The plan worked. The savage mother dropped little Harry and sprang toward the brilliantly-clothed wax figure. Seizing it in both hands she held it close to her breast. Little Harry, thus freed, ran to his mother, but alas, it was too late. One of the giant men rushed to Mrs. Baldwin and was about to dash out her brains when she awoke, only to find little Harry pounding away on her head to arouse her from her slumbers. It had been a dream, but all so vivid that she insisted on their immediate departure from this weird region of the world.

For years old Morton has …
For years old Morton has been shunned by his family because he lost the fortune his wife had married him for. He had sunk it in a mine that had been partially developed and then pronounced worthless by experts. The loss broke the old man's spirit and he was generally known as "Old-Good-for-Nothing." He was driven from the house, but had an ''office" in an old horse stall where he continued to dream out the great future for the abandoned mine. The mother renewed all her dreams in trying to ensnare a rich husband for her daughter in order that both of them may have the luxuries she nearly obtained. George Denby is the young man who is to marry the daughter. He has never seen old man Morton, who is never allowed around for fear of spoiling everything. The tender heart of Old-Good-for-Nothing is nearly broken when he is ignored at the wedding. The insolent son, Oscar, is to give the daughter away. The old man is half tearfully, half proudly watching the preparations for the ceremony from a coat closet. Here the young groom happens to have his coat and steps in to get a cigarette case out of the pocket and stumbles upon the old man whom he takes for a thief. He hauls him out and all the family are called to the scene. The bride shows some heart in her attitude toward her old father. Denby insists that the old man give them away. After the wedding the old man and Denby become chums. In return for all the good things Denby has done for him the old man makes him a confident and actually leads Denby to take faith in his mine. Denby secretly goes ahead and ties up all his money in buying the land and equipment for the new mine. The son, Oscar, discovers the project by accident. Is first horrified at his family losing the hard-earned second fortune and then suspicious that there must be something in it for all this investment. He breaks into his father's "office" at night, gets a copy of the location figures of mine and sends it to an expert geologist who reports that the land embraced by those figures is barren, but the land to the west of that location was rich in gold deposits. Oscar hurries to the spot and secretly and hurriedly get an option on the property to the west, in the end borrowing $10,000 from Denby to close the deal. Then Oscar returns home to tell on his father and watch the ruin of Denby. The mother and daughter are naturally ready to kill the old man on seeing him the cause of all their hopes again being dashed to the ground with the same shallow dream. They drive him out of their home for good. Denby rescues him. Denby is then assaulted by the whole family for his foolhardiness. He says that it is not so until confronted by the official geological report. He hastens away to make sure. He gets the local government expert, gives him the same location figures and the report is the same. In despair he hurries home to save the remnants. In the meantime Oscar has spread broadcast the reports of the experts that the new mine is worthless and Denby finds his credit ruined. Without funds, he now asks Oscar to repay him the $10,000 he borrowed. Oscar laughs at him. Denby is about to strike him down when Mrs. Morton intervenes ordering her son-in-law from the house. "Old-Good-for-Nothing." left alone. is illumined by the idea that something is radically wrong. He seeks out the mine surveyors and they undertake to verify his figures and find that they were wrong. The land to the west that Oscar had bought is barren of gold; the new mine is rich in it. He telegraphs the good news to Denby. Denby tears up Oscar's I.O.U. Oscar, ruined, leaves home and is met by his father with his first dividend of $5,000 in his pocket. He gives the money to Oscar.

Hiram Judson, a proud old man, is living with bis grown daughter, Nora, and his twelve-year-old daughter, Ellen. He is possessed of an income from a mine out west, and refuses to allow Nora to work, although the small income barely suffices to pay for their rooms and board in the boarding house kept by Mrs. Casey. Nora wants to work so she can have pretty clothes. Her father proudly tells her he is the support of the family and they must content themselves with what he provides. Nora has a beau, Frank Colton, whom her father doesn't look upon with favor. Judson receives word that his small income has been swept away. Still proud, he bravely determines he will earn sufficient to take care of his family and starts forth to find work, forbidding Nora to take any work or to help in any way except about the house. He finds it impossible to raise much money on account of his age. Finally in desperation, at the imminent loss of a roof over their heads, he accepts a job as a porter in an office building. It doesn't pay enough. When her father goes to work, Nora slips out, answers an ad, and gets a job with the firm of lawyers whose letter had announced the cessation of her father's income. This office is in the same building that Judson is now a porter. To save her father's pride and to keep him from the knowledge of her working, she mails her salary to him, writing on a letterhead of the firm, saying a small amount of the income was recoverable, etc. The old man is very proud and happy over it. He is glad that with his little income and his job he will be enabled to support them nicely. The knowledge that he is able to take care of them without assistance makes him feel better over the bum job he has. Things go along all right until Frank sees the old man one day and tries to prevent his working, telling him he will marry Nora and he can live with them. Judson refuses and forbids him to see Nora anymore. He reprimands Nora when she protests, repeating his assertion that he is the provider of the family and she must do as he says. Frank wants to tell the old man it is Nora's wages that support him more than his own, but Nora forbids him. One day Judson finds an error in a letter from the firm in reference to his remittance and calls to see them about it and finds out the truth. His pride wounded, he is angry at first, but finally realizes his daughter's love and care for him, and consents to her marriage, and reconciles himself to letting someone else care for him and his family henceforth.

Bob Campbell, ne'er-do-well, falls in love with Bella Cortwright, …
Bob Campbell, ne'er-do-well, falls in love with Bella Cortwright, daughter of the president of the city bank. She persuades him to try to get a steady job and be somebody. He promises, but finds it very hard to overcome his evil reputation. Bob chances to meet James Crawford, a well-dressed crook, and is inveigled into helping him rob the bank. While Campbell is standing on guard, the crook being busy in the vaults, Bella happens along. She praises Bob for his pluck in trying persistently to get honorable work. Ashamed of the position in which, all unconsciously, she has caught him, he gives chase to the burglar, who jumps aboard a deserted train at the station, and starting the engine, makes his getaway. Bob, however, manages to swing himself up behind, and making his way to the locomotive, engages the crook in a hand to hand fight, in which he flings him from the moving train. Returning, he finds the bank robber dead. Bob refunds the stolen money, receiving the bank president's thanks in the form of a better position, and Bella for his wife.
