Haunted by the spectre of Morris, Sr., young Morris early takes his life. On his dying bed he confides to Dr. Lane that his little son no doubt will inherit his fathers and grandfathers tendencies. But the doctor allows his silence to be bought with a sum of money. Fifteen years later, the doctors daughter, Marion, falls in love with Frank Morris, the third generation. Her fathers remonstrances only precipitate an elopement. The young people live happily together, until the disease-laden mind of Morris breaks forth into crime. The doctor, called to his daughters side, finds her deadand his son-in-law is taken away, a raving maniac Dr. Lane realizes that he has paid the price for consenting to be bribed into silence years before.
