After a man from the street (Tramp) gives a speech in his church which moves him and his whole congregation. He invites all the members to take the WWJD pledge with him for one whole year, nevertheless, he was also very active in the abolition of the saloon. He faced more than a few challenges during his walk, but became a role model in Christianity and was rewarded by God for his good faith.

She was later proposed to by 2 men but turned them down, and at the end, married Rolling Page.
