But her unhappy home life with a drunken father leads her to try out everyone of her admirers, and if a young man drinks she rejects him. Elick almost comes up to Betty's standard. But on a day when Elick yields to temptation, Betty finds him at daybreak, helpless to rescue her father who has fallen into a deep gully. Seeing his unsteady hands and twitching face, she shrinks away from Elick, while Jep, a young stranger, arriving on the scene just then, lifts her father on his strong shoulders, and with resolute step caries him home, thus winning Betty's admiration. Later Betty puts Jep to the same test as the others, but though she leads him to believe that she is in love with Elick, Jep does not drink even to drown his disappointment. The boys pick a fight with their new rival, of whom they all are jealous. But Jep easily handles the half-tipsy gang, proving himself an Orlando and a Sir Galahad in one. Betty joyfully consents to marry him. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
