Harvy, the heavy, and Bella, the ingenue, of a cheap theatrical company are encumbered with an infant girl. The husband, a worthless, dissipated character, annoyed by the presence of the child and the care the wife is compelled to give it. deserts them both. The show then "busts" and the mother and the infant are left stranded in a small California town. Reluctantly the mother is compelled to abandon the child upon the steps of a Quaker household. The childless Quaker couple regard the waif as an answer from heaven to their prayers, and taking the infant in, adopt it and rear it as their own. Years now pass and the grown up girl (Mercy) is now soon at the age of eighteen leading the simple life of the Quaker. She is being courted by the son of a neighboring family (also Quakers), who is a school teacher. One day, actuated by some strange mood, Mercy improvises a theatrical costume, and delights several of her companions with real "play-acting." She is discovered by her foster mother and reprimanded. Later she is attracted by the posters of a musical comedy that is to play the local "opery-house" that night. Dancing with her shadow in the road in imitation of one of the pictures, she is surprised and led home by her shocked sweetheart. That night she climbs out her bedroom window, slides down the pillars of the portico and goes to the "opery-house." On a pile of boxes in an alley alongside the theater she watches the show through a window. An actor coming out in the alley for a smoke discovers her and takes her behind the scenes. Carried away by the glamour of her surroundings, she forgets all her early training in a "reversion of type" and goes off with the company, leaving her foster-parents to mourn the girl they had come to love so dearly. With this company Mercy travels from town to town, thoroughly happy in her new environment. The actor who first discovered her becomes her "bag-bearer" and devoted cavalier, and is infatuated with her. A manager, who chances to see her, is struck by her demure, appealing type of beauty and thinking she might prove a second Edna May, brings her on to New York. This particular manager makes a specialty of "girly" musical shows of the Ziegfeld type, and in one of these he places Mercy. In this same company the mother who had deserted her years ago, having lost her youth and beauty, is now engaged as a wardrobe woman. The two women, without suspecting their relations, are strongly attracted to each other. Mercy makes a fairly good hit in her environment and when a boost in her salary makes it possible for her to have an apartment, she takes the wardrobe woman as a housekeeper. Her Quaker sweetheart traces her and calls upon her in a vain effort to win her back to her old life. The actor, who has figured in her life before, is still madly in love with her, and endeavors to reinstate himself in her affections. She repulses him. Crazy with drink, he draws a revolver and fires at her, but misses her. Alarmed, her mother rushes in between them just in time to receive the second shot in her bosom. The actor is led off by the police. Mercy goes to the scene of her early life, with her former Quaker sweetheart, and is received with a glad welcome by her foster-parents.

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.

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, 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.

Out of the Air

The fireman is in love with his engineer's daughter and is …
The fireman is in love with his engineer's daughter and is accepted by her in his proposal of marriage. While the engineer is absent a tube blows out of the engine and the fireman quits his post and crouches beside the engine while the steam escapes. The engineer, coming up, jumps aboard, shuts off the steam and is painfully burned. For the first time he sees the fireman in his cowardly situation and berates him as a man unworthy a place in the cab. The engineer succeeds in having the fireman discharged for quitting his post. The fireman visits the daughter with his troubles, but on his departure the arriving father explains the circumstances of the fireman's dismissal and advises the daughter to have nothing to do with a coward. Wandering aimlessly down the tracks the fireman comes to an aviator working on an aeroplane, and, making application, secures a job as mechanic. The engineer's daughter and her little sister are playing about the railroad tracks chasing a dog when the former's foot is caught in a frog, and at first unsuspecting of their danger they play at releasing it. Down the line the father is aboard about to start out with a new fireman when the throttle is thrown open, and, jumping off with a spurt, the engine tosses the two into the ditch and races away. Having no success in releasing the foot, the girls have become anxious and discover that a train is soon due. The little one runs to the nearby station and finding no one there makes use of her knowledge of telegraphy to wire for help to the adjoining station. The discharged fireman happens to be passing and catches the message. They tell him the particulars at the station and he races to the aeroplane and flies away toward the rescue. A duel of speed ensues between the aeroplane and the runaway engine bearing down on the girl, who now fully realizes her danger. When the aeroplane finally catches the engine, the ex-fireman slides down a rope and swings into the cab, shuts off the engine and saves the girl. The father arrives later with others and extends his apologies and complete forgiveness of the man he had wrongfully branded a coward.
