Annabelle Leigh witnessed her father's death in a fight over a mine claim, then married John Rawson, a bearded hermit who kidnapped her to protect her, and then was sent away by him because of her crying.

Rawson, beardless and in town to get the stock to give him control of the mine, falls in love with Annabelle without recognizing her, and rents the mansion surreptitiously from the butler. After Annabelle recovers the stock from Wimbledon while he drunkenly sleeps, she tells Rawson she is going to find her husband and is pleasantly surprised when he reveals his ... +
