Later, in the West, she marries a prominent business man without revealing the story of her past.' After a while his business brings him back to the town where she had been imprisoned,'and there she^ lives -in hourly dread of recognition by the police. This eventually occurs, and she is compelled to make a full confession to her hitherto unsuspecting husband. The story is full of dramatic situations, and pives Clau-a Kimball Young every opportunity for the display of her high artisti-7. The interest is intense throughout, and the play moves forward rapidly and convincingly.
