Summary

Ormi Hawley, at an artist's reception, meets Edwin August, a young actor, and they fall in love. August induces Mr. White, the manager of the company, to give Hawley a part in the new play. She is engaged and makes a big hit. She, however, soon discovers that Jean Gale, one of the company, is in love with August and, quitting the organization, takes another engagement. Mr. Moore, a millionaire, is in love with Miss Hawley, and begs her to marry him and she accepts. August reads the notice in the papers. One night August becomes ill before going on the stage and during the performance he falls in a faint and is taken home. The doctor, who is summoned, gives out the report to the papers that his case is serious. The millionaire's wife reads it at the breakfast table and she persuades her husband to go with her to the sick man's home. They go together and arrive just in time for a last parting and the actor dies in his loved one's arms.
