An old admirer of Ruth's, Stephen Bond (Bradley Barker), sends Trent out West to work and lavishes attention and gifts on Ruth.

Everything is cleared up when it is discovered that the baby is Bond's, and that he has an absent wife who returns to him when her first husband, a con, is killed. Ruth and Trent reunite and begin their lives over again.
