The Parcots father, mother, and
two charming daughters live in
Southern California. At the time
the action begins. Stephen Parcot,
i he father, is in the Far North pur
suing his avocation as an explorer.
Mrs. Parcot has hurried overseas to
Belgium to bring back one daugh
ter who had been placed in a con
vent there. Dininy Parcot (the
lead in the picture, played by
Blanche Sweet, who also appears
as the other sister in several parts
of the production) is alone in the
beautiful Parcot home. She re
ceives a letter from her loved ones
abroad a letter that almost sends
her reason tottering from its throne
- a letter that tells her that invad
ing soldiers have committed against
both her mother and her sister "the
The letter has been one last note
of explanation and a plea that
mother an dsister be forgotten, a
cry that their disgrace be shielded
from the world.
With the letter carefully hidden
in a wallet. Dimny. half crazed with
jirief and not figuring the difficul
ties of the task she has set for her
self, sets out to find her loved ones.
Her train is delayed just outside
a little town in the middle west. A
chance traveling acquaintance of

her acquaintance are walking thru
a shaded street in ttie little village
just at dusk, the acquaintance,
smitten by Diruny's beauty, attempts
to force his attentions upon her
Dimny collapses; her reason flees.
Only a zephyr of the breath of life
remains! Weeks later she recovers
her strength, both mental and phy
sical, to tind that the has been nurs

Noll Windsor, an undergraduate
at the college in the little town, has
learned to love Dimny. She tells
him her story and torn between
the fear of all men and the thought
that she may waver from her path
of chosen duty, leaves the home
without announcement, to continue
on her journey.
Soon after, young Windsor answ
ers his government's call to serve
with Hoover's Belgian relief com
mission in the devastated country,
lie arrives in Washington to secure
bus passports and discovers Dimny,
who has been in the capitol city for
some time, unable to continue her
j.urn-y for the reason that the gov
criimint has discontinued the is-,
suauce of passports to "unmarried"
women. Noll and Dimny effect a
marriage of convenience, Dimny's
passports being securable in no oth

Noll, husband in name only, finds
if pos-siblo to do much to aid Dininy
in her search for her people. To
gether they travel the devastated
regions, even penetrating the enemy
country- -for in those days the Unit
ed States had not entered the war.
A veritable pawn of Fate, it is
Dimny's misfortune to encounter
the very beast who had ravished her
sister. When he sees the fresh
young girl from California. Colonel

$56,320.00. or a price of $352.00 an

After disposing of the farm. Mr
Stohlman immediately purchased
the hardware store of J. R. Noyes,

give bis undivided attention to the
