Storyline

Helen, the daughter of a poor backwoods farmer, is fascinated by the heartless city chap who makes her humble home his headquarters while on a hunting trip. A short time after the sportsman's return to the city, his letters cease. Poor Helen, in disgrace, is driven from her home. In the city she finds work as a laundress, earning barely enough to live and care for her new-born babe. She meets a rich man. Humphrey, by name, who lends her money to buy new clothes. In an incredibly short time she finds herself completely in his power. Escaping from his apartments, she seeks death in the river, but is saved by the Salvation Army Captain, and consecrates her life to the cause. In her work of saving souls. Helen enters a café and there comes face to face with her own sister, now a dancer. Here follow several touching scenes, showing the redemption of the wayward sister and her happy marriage to a worthy fellow. Helen's final surrender to the Salvation Army Captain provides a fitting climax. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
