When Yale Durant (Earle Williams) inherits a fortune, he squanders it. He feels that there is nothing left for him to do but to commit suicide. But a friend talks him out of it and asks him to run his business for a week. Durant "borrows" 3,000 dollars' worth of securities to help out the father (John Elliot) of his fiancée (Rhea Haines). Then he has to get the bonds back before they are discovered missing. Along the way, Durant's fiancée elopes with someone else, but this frees him up to unite with the "right girl," secretary Minnie Patten (Vola Vale). This programmer was based on a novel by Frederic Van Rensselaer Day.
