  • Plot: On the night when the smugglers land one of the biggest cargoes, a ship is wrecked off-shore. The single survivor is a little girl, whom the chieftain rescues and adopts. Years later, the waif, now a woman of great beauty, is persecuted with unwelcome attentions by one Cutler, a member of the band. Jack Hardy, a secret service agent, and his sister, Alice, visit their aunt, Mrs. Morton, who resides near the crags in which the smugglers have their lair. Alice visits the beach to try out a new camera, and, seeing Cutler and Rita, the waif, in a charming pose, takes a snapshot of them without being detected. Later the same afternoon she sees the smugglers landing a cargo, and sends her chauffeur to summon her brother and his aids. The secret service men raid the smugglers' cave and capture the leaders. Rita, who has been forced to take part in the smuggling, is borne away by two members of the band and left by the roadside in an exhausted condition. Here she is discovered by Mrs. Morton's maid and taken to the house, where she is revived. In time, Mrs. Morton becomes greatly attached to the waif and adopts her. Cutler turns state's evidence. Released from custody after the others are sentenced to prison, he discovers Rita and trails her to the Morton home, where he forces an entrance and demands money from the girl. The free members of the band have heard of Cutler's treachery and keep watch on him. Mrs. Morton's health is bad, and Cutler's entrance into the house aggravates a seizure which culminates in her death. After the funeral Jack and Alice take Rita to live with them. Cutler discovers the girl's whereabouts and plans to blackmail her. The smugglers are released from prison and join the others in the hunt for Cutler. Jack has fallen in love with Rita and is engaged to marry her. Alice, learning of their love for each other, remembers the snapshot she took, which indicates that Jack is not Rita's first love, but she does not tell what she knows until Cutler, having forced an entrance into the house, denounces Rita as his faithless sweetheart. Then Alice produces the photograph which seems to confirm the charge. The smugglers rush in and, learning of the charge, declare it is false. Then they execute summary vengeance upon the traitor, who is captured after having bolted from the house in a vain effort to escape.
