SYNOPSIS

At a small inn kept by her father, and frequented by wealthy hunters, Miriam Holt meets the son of a sportsman, Clyde Brunton. The two young people are attracted to each other, but years later when Clyde visits the inn expecting to marry Miriam, he mistakenly believes her to be interested in someone else. Clyde later marries the shallow Winifred, which leads to unhappiness. Meanwhile, Miriam has become famous for her psychic powers, which she uses to benefit humanity. When Miriam discerns that one of her suitors, the dissolute Arnold Crane has wronged a woman, he promises to reform. Although Clyde's father and Winifred brand Miriam a fraud, Miriam intuits that it is Winifred whom Arnold has wronged. Miriam's purity and good character are now evident to all. Winifred wants to make restitution, and the way is now cleared for Miriam and Clyde to find happiness ... +
