One day a Mrs. Dexter, who belongs to the smart set, invites Kitty to a bridge party. Ere the party is over, however, the grandmother arrives and takes a rather rebellious Kitty home, and then she tells the story of her own life. Long ago, when grandmother was a young girl she had a sweetheart, Alvin, and he finally asked her to become his wife. Kathleen was happy and confided the news to her best friend, Rose, who was herself in love with Alvin. Her jealousy caused her to plot. Alvin requests Kathleen not to gamble; Rose learns of this and invites Kathleen to a party, where she has secured the aid of her cousin to make Kathleen play. At first Kathleen wins, but later she loses all the time and in order to pay her gambling debts borrows money from Rose until the sum mounts. Then Alvin presents Kathleen with a beautiful emerald pin. Rose tells Kathleen that unless she pays the sum borrowed immediately that she will go to Alvin for the money. This alarms Kathleen and at the suggestion of Rose she pawns the pin. Then Rose suggests that they go to Kathleen's home to view the presents, and the wonderful emerald pin. Kathleen with a quivering heart accompanies them. But meantime the maid, who was an accomplice of a band of crooks, had admitted one of the gang and taken all the presents. This foils Rose's plan, but never so long as Alvin lived did Kathleen dare to wear the emerald pin which she later secured from the pawnshop. Kitty promises never to gamble, and the grandmother feels that she has accomplished some good by disclosing her secret. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
