~Kitty Gordon & Mahlon Hamilton~
~Kitty Gordon, W. Lawon Butt & Mahlon Hamilton~
Helen Rowland is indifferent toward her wealthy husband Henry and spends most of her time at
social events. Henry agrees to give financial assistance to young clergyman John Sterling for his
missionary cause if Helen can become interested in Sterling's work in the slums. Helen becomes so
interested in Sterling's mission work that she admits to Henry that she is in love with the
clergyman. Henry then insists that Sterling arouse Helen's hatred. Sterling feigns drunkenness and
Helen is so disgusted that she hurries home. Henry is remorseful about the scheme, but confesses
he did it out of love for her, and so Helen discovers, finally, that she loves her husband.
