The Old Organist
Mary and her old father, the village organist, live by themselves. A stranger, Deering, appears in the little community, and falls in love with the country girl. He asks her hand in marriage, but the old organist asks for a day's consideration. On entering his church for the evening service, he discovers Deering in an intoxicated condition, and tells his daughter. Deering is a noted New York crook who has selected this village for a temporary retirement from his scenes of lawlessness. Deering entices Mary to elope with him and she consents. They go to New York and Deering joins his old pals and Mary becomes the victim of his brutality. At length Deering throws his unfortunate wife out of the miserable home, and the poor girl determines to return to the village. In the meantime Deering and his pals have a falling out, and Deering is killed. The old organist is about to start for the city in search of his child, when overcome by his unwonted exertions, he dies peacefully in the old seat...
