Old Foxen. a trapper, looks upon Nan with the love of a father, Cash Durkin and Dick Clark meet Nan. Val departs for the settlement. Old Foxen sees Nan dreaming. Warned by Clark to keep away from the trapper's cabin, Durkin scoffs at the idea, and leaves his camp, placing on his neck a large handkerchief. Promising to marry her and take her away from the Mountain, Nan permits Durkin to come into the Sampson cabin. Later rushing back to his camp, Durkin gives orders to break camp and move on. His picture is brushed off the table. Foxen tells Val of Durkin's perfidy. They rush back to protect Nan. She finds the picture of Durkin. Putting it in her bosom, she returns, brokenhearted, to her cabin. Val and Foxen return. Nan confesses to her brother. They resolve to find the man. They center the cabin, only to find the sister dead, the picture of Durkin in her bosom, which gives her brother the clue to the man. They meet. Val is shot at by Durkin, who rushes to his side, thinking he has killed the brother of the girl he wronged. Val grabs his rifle, and now meets the betrayer of his sister face to face. Wresting the rifle from the hands of Durkin, a fight to death ensues. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
