His sweetheart, Helen, persists in what appears to be a losing battle in trying to rescue him from the moral degradation and mental corrosion into which he is rapidly sinking. Despite Helen's every effort and feeble efforts of his own, the story ends with Don stealing Helen's fur coat to get enough money to buy a bottle of whiskey
