On a great boulder, head sunk in hands, sat Jim Hathaway, when the bent figure of John Radway entered. They fell to talking and Jim soon learned that a faithless woman had pointed the way to the road to ruin for Radway. He went in search of her when Radway told him that his wife had deserted him for another. Jim saw her in the garden - saw her kiss her affinity and after he had gone, turned to the garden gate to admit a younger man. Jim, knife in hand, sped down the path, touched the older man upon the shoulder and led him back to where the younger man and the woman were wrapped in each others' arms. With a gasp of horror, his companion broke away and confronted her. She merely laughed - and, bent and broken, like the man he had destroyed before him, he turned away toward the road to ruin. Then Jim sought out that younger man and warned him and he, wiser than most of his kind, bade farewell forever to the faithless woman. Alone, she turned about and started with hesitating steps toward the road to ruin - and all the wrecks that strewed that dreary way smiled as she entered.
