Inmate No. 1 and Inmate No. 2 are two interesting characters. When they Hrst appear
alone on the stage they act very normal but at the instant that some one else appears their actions
are altogether different, they become crazy in talk and actions which causes many laughs.
Pendie and Pluribus are thc two negroes of the play. Pendie doesn't like the sanitarium al'
though Pluribus assures her that they are like a bunch of children playing make believe. Pluribus
has quite a time trying to watch the two inmates because they seem to like the rear gate of the
courtyard too well to suit him.
Miss Lavelle. head nurse at the Good Samaritan Sanitarium, is quite a competent nurse.
Everything is kept in best order by her. She worries a great deal about the expensive jewels
that are worn by one of their wealthy patients, Evelyn Winslow, who is not able to do without
them. Evelyn is there for the reason that her lover left her. She was greatly disappointed in him
and worried so much that it affected her mind. Her lover was said to be dead but she didn't
believe it and was always expecting him to return to her.
Mr. Higgins, superintendent of the sanitarium, proves to be a very good superintendent.
He also is
worried because mention has been made in the papers concerning the Winslow jewels
that are at the sanitarium and he fears some jewel thief will read it.
Mr. Marshall, president of the Board of Directors, is a rich elderly man who is engaged in
finding some way to stop his son from living such a fast, reckless life.
Jack. or "Speedy", Marshall as he is nicknamed, comes to a full stop when he is mistaken
for a new patient and is taken to the sanitarium. No one believes him when he says he is Mr.
Marshall's son. His father, thinking this a good place for him, disowns him, so Jack is elected
to stay in the sanitarium for six months. Jack thinks the sanitarium is a rather bad place for
him to be
in but changes his mind when he sees Lois Meredith at the sanitarium.
Lois Meredith, a very rich girl from a nearfby city, comes to the sanitarium often. She
donates her services to the entertainment of the patients by giving little plays about every month.
One of the amusing actors of these little plays is Reggie Mortimer. He is a very wealthy
young man and an admirer of Lois. He gets in a mixup all because of some plotting by "Speedy"
Many laughs are caused by the acting of Beatrice, Marjorie and janet. These girls are
friends of Lois and are also a cause of making "Speedy" like the Sanitarium.
Evelyn Winslow, a wealthy patient of the sanitarium, is a pitiful sight as she appears wear-
ing so many jewels and having a dazed look on her face Evelyn, when she sees "Speedy," thinks
he is her returned lover, Edward Gordon. Speedy makes her very happy when he tells her that
he is not Edward but will send for him as he knows where he is.
Hardboiled McCafferty, a policeman, comes to the sanitarium looking for "Speedy" Mar-
shall who he had been told was on the ground. The talk between Pluribus and McCaiferty
causes a great deal of laughter. McCafferty does not know "Speedy" so knows no diiferent
when "Speedy" himself tells McCafferty that Reggie Mortimer is "Speedy." There is a great
amount of trouble caused when McCaiferty arrests Reggie for "Speedy,"
Edward Gordon, Evelyn's iiance, arrives in "Speedy" Marsl1all's airplane which had been
sent for him. When Evelyn sees him she becomes herself again and all is well between Evelyn
and Edward. Lois then takes the Winslow jewels from Evelyn and puts them on to wear in the
play that afternoon. She is kidnapped soon after this. Jack goes' to her rescue accompanied by
McCafferty who assists in bringing Lois back.
McCafferty gets the jewel thieves, who are none other than Inmate No. 1 and Inmate No. 2.
"Speedy" finally gets the girl whom he had followed over half the world and ended up by
finding her in the Good Samaritan Sanitarium, Lois Meredith.

'ILM .tae Kiasma! 'WQ'.ff
After being absent from his home for quite a time, Billy Wilcox returns home bringing
with him his young bride Liza Lou, who is the most charming, lovable and ignorant young wife
from the mountains of Virginia. '
Mrs. Denman, Billy's Housekeeper, and Clarice, the French maid, although they think Liza
Lou very lovely, do not know how she will manage such a large home.
Billy's aristocratic sister, Juliet, arrives with her newly acquired husband, Lord Stanton.
It is not surprising that Liza Lou is looked down on by Juliet.
Fred Norworth, Billy's friend, who had heard of Billy's return, hastens to see him. He is
present when word comes of Juliet's arrival. He wishes to leave as he is in love with her and
was once engaged to her. Billy persuades him to stay and see her.
Liza Lou has a hard time trying to love Juliet. She doesn't understand all these society
things. But she has her faithful colored maid Nihby, whom she loves, but her other maid, Clarice,
loves to tease Nibby continually.
Elmer Peeting, Liza Lou's country cousin, is from the Virginia mountains. He causes many
laughs and also some excitement.
Clarice causes Lord Stanton some worry when upon his arrival he finds her. She happens
to be one of his exfwives and has followed him for the purpose of getting revenge. Lord 'Stanton
had divorced and deserted her previously in a large city and left her to care for herself.
After Elmer's arrival there is some excitement. Billy Ends his wife, Liza Lou, in the arms
of Lord Stanton. Lady Stanton finds Clarice and her husband hghting. Liza Lou believes that
Billy doesn't love her any more so is ready to leave for the mountains with Elmer. Fred Nor'
worth and Juliet had been talking in the summer house and soon after his departure Lady Stanton
had a quarrel with Lord Stanton and following this Lord Stanton was found dead withfElmer's
shot gun lying beside him in the summer house. .
Louden, a detective, and his assistant arrive on the scene. They find Liza Lou and Elmer
just leaving and bring them back. After questioning all of them Louden finally arrests Billy for
killing Lord Stanton. Lady Stanton tells how she and her husband were quarreling in the sum'
mer house, how he choked her, and how she fainted. Vv'hen she came to Lord Stanton was dead
with Elmer's shot gun beside him. Louden says that Billy had three motives for killing Lord
Stanton-hrst, jealousy, because he had found his wife in Lord Stanton's armsg second, because
Lord Stanton had made his sister's life unhappyg and third, because Lord Stanton had threatened
to reveal something to the world that would ruin Billy's life politically.
The following three months were very miserable. Billy had not yet been convicted of the
murder and all were waiting for something to happen to save him. Liza Lou trusted in God and
knew that Billy would be saved.
During this time Juliet learns to love Liza Lou. She learns that Liza Lou isn't so ignorant
as had appeared.
Fred, who spent most of his time with Juliet, Ends happiness when she promises to marry him.
Clarice also finds happiness when she tricks Elmer into proposing to her.
Pete, the faithful colored servant, had been failing ever since Lord Stanton's murder. He
finally confesses that he was the' one who murdered Lord Stanton. He did it to save Juliet's
life. He saw Lord Stanton choking her and he shot him before he had thought about it. Pcte
had loved and cared for Juliet all her life and knew that Lord Stanton had made her unhappy.
Billy said that Pete would get justice at a trial if he lived because he had shot to save Juliet's life.
