Although simple and untrained in the ways of the world, she was fortunate enough to secure a position with a famous Parisian Opera Company. Then she felt that indeed her dreams of a wonderful success had come true. But in this same organization was Gaby Dablys, who became extremely jealous of Arlette on account of her meteoric success. Her jealousy prompted thoughts of vengeance. One night, just before Arlette's first entrance, she induced her to partake of some wine, which she had previously drugged. Overcome by the powerful narcotic, Arlette made a miserable failure. The chagrin and disgrace of it all caused the poor girl to lose her reason. In this pitiful condition she was brought back to her father's house. The revenge of Gaby was short lived. Slowly but surely remorse overtook her. At last, unable to stand the lashings of her conscience, she went to the home of Arlette to endeavor to alleviate the suffering she had caused. For weeks and weeks she cared for her, watching and waiting for a flash of reason in those staring and vacant eyes, but to no avail. One day, while seated at the piano, Gaby unconsciously wandered into the old familiar role of Arlette, Slowly the haunting melody called hack her fleeting reason. Her first rational thought was one of revenge, but Gaby pleaded so hard for forgiveness, that Arlette was touched with pity. Extending her arms to the thoroughly repentant Gaby, all is forgotten.
