The care of the children combined with the drudgery which is forced upon the poor girl instills a hatred in her heart for children, and she grows to loathe all children with an unreasoning hatred. As time goes on the old hag who is the mother of the children, heaps so many abuses on Clara's head she begins to fear that in a moment of intense rage she will kill one of the children. After an extremely revolting abuse on the part of a young son in the household, and half starved, the young girl takes a suit of the boy's clothing and runs away, making her escape like a hobo riding the brake beams. She goes to a country where but recently a young widower left with a motherless babe has taken up his abode with an old mountaineer couple. The old lady becomes so enchanted with the child, and the young widower finds so much peace and contentment in the hill country, that he buys a home in the woods. Clara dressed as a boy applies to the mountaineers' house for food. The old man sets her to chopping wood and she faints at her task. Richard Stone, the young widower, discovers her fainted and in picking her up her hat falls off and her hair falls down and he discovers her to be a girl. The girl tells her story of abuse and finds a sympathetic home. In the course of time Stone and Clara marry and a little stranger is expected. Clara develops the peculiar hatred for Stone's little girl, and he with perfect understanding takes his little girl to the mountaineer's wife. Stone on hearing from the doctor that he is a father, rushes to the mountaineers' home and take his little girl back to his wife. Clara, the new mother, is transformed into a new woman and takes Stone's little girl, "Billie," into her arms with a world of affection and tenderness and a happy household is established through Mother Love.
