- Summaries (1)
Leonore Harris, a cabaret dancer, is taken ill and her physician orders a rest. She goes into a quiet mountain village and becomes the object of interest and speculation for the mountaineers. She informs Sheriff Jones she wants to rent a cottage. The sheriff proves as efficient in real estate as in the performance of his duties as an officer. She becomes a neighbor of John Bingham, a young mountaineer, who, however, is married and has a daughter. The city visitor is not long in attracting his attention and he becomes a rival of Sheriff Jones. Young Mrs. Bingham's brother is not long in perceiving his brother-in-law's duplicity and threatens to bring him to task if he does not desist. Her health regained, Leonore returns to the city and John, taking his savings, accompanies her. Arriving in the city, his "rube" appearance is noticeable and Leonore induces him to purchase a "sporty" wardrobe. He patronizes the café where Leonore dances and is king of the place, upon liberal distribution of money. He accompanies Leonore home with a couple of "about-towners" and his bankroll disappears. But it is not until morning brings soberness that he realizes his loss. His money gone, Leonore spurns his attentions. He is no longer a welcome guest at the café. Meanwhile back home Mrs. Bingham is mourning his departure and, with her brother and daughter, decides to search for him in the city. Sheriff Jones furnished the address of Leonore and the shabby trio call upon Leonore at the café, only to find John has returned to the mountains. They return and in the sunset a great mistake is realized, from which is born a greater love.
