he is out of town. She tries to reach Dr. Bell, the hospital physician, but he is also away. When she wants to notify the mother, Nick shows Mrs. Ritchey to her, sleeping drunkenly. Returning to the sick room, Lora meets Mortie making a delivery to Nick. They decide to give the child a milk bath and Mortie leaves to get the milk. Meanwhile, Mrs. Maxwell samples some of Mortie’s liquor and when Nick comes in to find out what is happening, she accuses him of keeping Mrs. Ritchey drunk and deliberately starving the children to death so he can get the trust fund left them by their father. Nick attends to her in his own way.
When Lora has again telephoned Dr. Bell, he arrives and immediately prepares for a blood transfusion. Mortie keeps Nick at bay while the
