The screenplay to this drama, which has a strong emphasis on both mother love and the supernatural, was the third prize winner in a contest run by the Evening Sun. Every day, financier John Morrison (Frank Currier) brings roses home to his wife (Mary Maurice). Their happy family is upset when their daughter Helen (Dorothy Kelly) becomes infatuated with Wall Street schemer Spencer Delevan (Anders Randolph). When her brother Payne (James Morrison) tries to warn her about Delevan, Helen refuses to believe it and makes plans to elope. But her plans are stalled when Mrs. Morrison dies suddenly. Payne has to take over the business from his grief-stricken father and once again Delevan urges Helen to run off with him. But when she sees a rose in his boutonnière, her mother's face appears before her and she refuses. Delevan -- who only wanted Helen to get Morrison under his thumb -- now tries to ruin her father through his railroad holdings. But his stenographer (Ethel Lloyd), spurned by Delevan when he courted Helen, warns Payne of the scheme. Payne recalls that at one time his father gave his mother some shares of the company in question, but no one can remember where they are. Once again, Mother appears in a vision, and she leads her son to the family Bible. Within the pages is the certificate for five thousand shares of the railroad stock -- enough to give the Morrisons a controlling interest in the company, and to defeat Delevan.
