At first, the starry-eyed girl is rebelliously unwilling to believe this bitter fact after the shyster's seemingly adoring courtship of her, and she angrily lashes out at her long-time sweetheart when he tries to warn her of the philanderer's dishonesty, accusing him of merely being jealous. She eventually discovers written proof of the con-artist's treachery, however, and this new knowledge --- coupled with her subsequently hearing Mr. Paderewski play a hauntingly-soothing rendition of Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" for her benefit --- calms her sufficiently to come back to her senses and re-accept the true-hearted affections of her original country-boy lover. (It is also revealed that Mr. Paderewski's playing of this very same melody two decades earlier had fortuitously brought the girl's own parents together, as well.)
