Sadie is not the least fussed, rejects Ben's offer of marriage, but accepts the proposal of brother John. Ben, disgusted and disappointed, quarrels with the lucky man and then leaves for the west. John and Sadie marry and experience three years of happiness, when death snatches him from her arms and leaves her penniless, with a baby at her breast. She is so poor that she is forced to take in washing. During this interim, Ben has had varying fortunes in the wilds. He saves an Indian from the hands of vigilantes about to lynch him for horse-thievery. After stirring adventures they make a getaway. The Indian is shot, but under the skilled nursing of Ben, eventually recovers. The Aborigine is so grateful that he reveals to Ben the site of a rich placer mine and the latter washes out a fortune. He goes back to the old town, a sadder but a wealthy man, with forgiveness in his heart. He finds his sister-in-law bending over a wash-tub as her chubby infant wails an accompaniment from the floor. These things move honest Ben mightily, and he wonders if the days of might-have-been cannot come back. He speaks to her in the old voice, woos her with the old words. She listens to his suit as he persuades her that he should take his brother's place and provide a father for the helpless. So all's well that ends well.
