For reasons of state, the first-born, a baby girl, is sent away and placed in the care of Gretchen, a trusted peasant woman, who is the widowed mother of a little child about the same age. The two children grow up as sisters. Later, upon her deathbed, the noble lady repents and sends for her child to reinstate her. Gretchen takes this opportunity to make a great lady of her own daughter Lena, the goose girl, by sending her to court instead of the real heiress. Hence Lena is taken before the noble lady as she breathes her last, happy in the belief that she has made reparation. Lena is now a great lady, but the title is a great misfit; court etiquette with her is hard work. She longs to be back with Gretchen and her "geeses." She endures it as long as she can and then bolts. Gretchen, by this time, is sorry for her deception, and is only too eager to straighten the affair.

A "Blanket Tramp" is he who carries with him a blanket to shield him, and for this he is frowned upon by the regular tramps and denied the society of that quasi-genteel fraternity, and so has to flock alone. Such is the condition of the hero of our story. In the course of his peregrinations, he passes the Post Office of a small village, and begs for "grub," which the daughter of the old postmaster hands out to him. For this he is grateful and has a chance later to render her a great service, for when the time comes to take the mail to the railroad station and get the incoming mail, the old postmaster is taken ill, and the daughter is obliged to go. The incoming mail contains a pouch of registered matter. Its arrival is witnessed by a couple of real tramps, who make up their minds to get it. This appears easy, when they see into whose custody it is given, the girl's. Their plan would have succeeded had not the "blanket tramp" happened along, who proved the hero of the day.

In the heart of the American desert we find an old miner with his only daughter, he toiling day after day at his rocker-cradle in quest of the precious ore, while his pretty daughter keeps his camp and makes it as comfortable as possible in this wilderness. Having secreted quite a store of nuggets, his daughter persuades him to return to civilization, where they may enjoy the fruits of their labor. Both are happy in the anticipation of what seems a bright future, and the girl starts to prepare their final meal at the camp. While she is away at the spring getting water, a desert wanderer appears at the spring getting water, a desert wanderer appears at the camp, and at the sight of the old man weighing his gold is seized with cupidity. He himself had toiled long in the wilds, but with no success, so he demands that the old man divide his gains with him. This, of course, the miner decries, and the wanderer uses force. In the struggle the old man is knocked down, and striking his head, expires. The wanderer realizes he has caused the old miner's death, and is filled with horror, but assuming he is alone in the desert, takes all of the gold and hurries off. What a sight greets the girl at her return. From the very zenith of joy she is plunged into most profound grief. However, she buries her dear old dad, and at his grave vows to bring to justice the man who caused he death. Meanwhile, the culprit has, in his terror, lost his way, and would have perished had he not been rescued by the girl as she is making her way to San Fernando. They are, of course, unknown to each other, and during their ride an attachment springs up between them particularly on the man's side. He falls deeply in love with his rescuer. When they reach town, she tells her story to the sheriff who warns her to be silent as her father's slayer will surely turn up in the town. Later the wanderer proposes marriage to the girl, and to further his suit tells her he has sufficient gold to make then happy, showing her the bags. At the sight of them she nearly swoons, but upon regaining composure, pretends to accept. He thereupon takes her in his arms, and while so engaged she stealthily secures his revolver, breaks away from him and marches him off to the sheriff with the gun pointed at his head. The sheriff takes him in hand to meet the punishment he deserves, while she goes back to the grave of her father, where we leave her as she says, "I did it, Dad."

No land nor period was more given to romance than the Spanish American in the early part of the 19th century. The influence of the warm constant sun, without excessive amenity was conducive to lethargy and lethargy is the seed of romance. The dreamer is a romancer. This Biograph story starts some time before Mexican independence was proclaimed in California, which occurred in 1822. Perdita Arguello, the pretty Spanish senorita is beloved by Jose Manuella, a wealthy young Spaniard, who migrated to the new world in search of adventure. A man of qualities, he surrenders claim upon the girl when he finds her heart is given to Pedro Cortes, a handsome troubadour of the village. Cortes is just the sort of fellow to impress a thoughtless and unsophisticated girl with his gentle persuasive manner together with his talent as a musician. Of poetic temperament, she yields to his plan and marries him. But what a calamity! Twenty years later we see the result of her folly. Cortes proved to be a worthless dipsomaniac and reprobate. Spending his time and money she earns at the tavern. The most unfortunate feature is that they have a son, now nearly 19 years old. Perdita realizes that the environs and example of the father are not favorable to the boy's well-being, hence she resolves to save him. It is at a time when Baja and Alta California are in conflict, and Manuella, Perdita's former lover, is now Governor. So she appeals to him to provide a future for their son. The Governor takes the boy into his own company. But is there any wonder that the son of such a dog as Cortes should prove himself to be a despicable whelp? He is not long in the service when the blood of his father asserts itself. Drunkenness is one of the first offenses. Next theft of the meanest order, that of robbing his sleeping comrades-in-arms. Perdita has dispatched a letter of thanks to the Governor, which he is reading as the drunken boy is brought before him. The tone of the letter induces Manuella to be easy on the boy that she might live in ignorance of his real nature. However, later she writes that she is dying and believing her son has made a name for himself, she asks to be allowed to see him before she dies. As the Governor reads this letter the boy is brought before him, having been caught for thieving. Manuella is thoroughly disgusted with the boy, but in order to have his mother die happy, he decorates him, making him appear before her as a hero. When she breathes her last the medals are torn his breast and he is sent to prison where the punishment he justly deserves is inflicted. In this subject are shown a series of most beautiful scenes of Southern California, which are photographically perfect.

Ben Cook had been a man of intelligent energy, but meeting with reverses, went the way of so many others, that is, became addicted to drink. Falling lower and lower, we first see him a drunken loafer. In return for his wife's tearful entreaties he gives abuse, and finally desertion; leaving his native town for parts unknown. Landing in a strange village, he seeks and obtains employment in a sawmill, where he resolves to brace up. Meanwhile, his poor wife, learning from her husband's companions of his flight, becomes unbalanced in mind, and taking up her little three-year-old child, starts out in search of him. On she wanders, cold and hungry, meeting a kindhearted Italian on the way, who compassionately gives her an old shawl to wrap about the child. Further on she falls exhausted beside a haystack. Here the hallucination of hearing her husband's voice calling seizes her and she leaves the child to go in answer to the imagined call. The child is found later by an old farmer, who adopts it. The poor woman staggers on until she falls helpless in the road. She is found by a benevolent couple who take her in and care for her, she performing light housework in return for their kindness. Years later Cook, through his close application to work, has become manager of the mill, and is enjoying the best of fortune. A search for his deserted wife has proved fruitless, hence he assumed her dead. One day while out in his auto, it becomes temporarily disabled, and he rests up at a farmhouse, where they are celebrating their daughter's eighteenth birthday. The meeting with the daughter incurs mutual love at first sight. Later they are betrothed and the wedding day set. It is now the day of the wedding and Cook is speeding to the house to meet the wedding party when his machine passes the place where his wife has lived all these years. She recognizes him and dashes after him, but, of course, is far distanced. Continuing, she comes to the house shortly after the party, of which she knows nothing, has left. She asks for a drink, and while waiting sees her husband's picture in a frame on the table. To her queries the maid tells her in detail about the little foundling, the adoption, the birthday party, and now of the wedding, which may at this moment be taking place. It is for her the awakening. She realizes the horror of the situation, and asking the direction to the church dashes madly out, hailing a passing wagon, begs the man to drive in haste to it. The ceremony has just begun when she rushes in. Oh God! What a terrible revelation. She has just strength enough to make the truth clear when she falls into her husband's arms dead. Thus, in a flash he is made to feel the weight of the hand of Divine Justice in the horror and mortification of the situation.
