~Plot Synopsis~
Myron Leeds and his brother Roger are both in love with Mary, but when Myron wins her, his father
disowns him. While Myron struggles as an artist to support his wife and little daughter Beth, Roger
marries and settles into his father's sumptuous estate. Roger's maid Norah, concerned when the
death of his little boy causes him and his wife to shut themselves off from all society, invites Beth to
visit the estate posing as her niece. Beth endears herself to the couple, but Myron, driven to
desperation by his poverty and his wife's ill health, decides to rob the estate. Roger hears that
someone is breaking in, but in attempting to shoot the intruder, he wounds Beth instead. As a result
of this unhappy incident, Roger resolves to share his fortune with his brother, and the family is
reunited.
