Betty Marshall (Olive Thomas) goes to visit her aunt (Bliss Chevalier) and her cousin (Mary Warren). Since Betty's relations have gone through their fortune, the cousin plans to snag Tom Bartlett (Charles Gunn), the son of a millionaire (George Hernandez). Since Tom is supposed to go on a yachting trip, the aunt and cousin go too. But once he gets a look at Betty, he is smitten and decides to stay home. With her relatives gone, Betty opens up the aunt's home as a boarding house to make some money for her father, and Tom insists on boarding there. Naturally, this helps their romance along and by the time Betty's aunt and cousin return she and Tom are married. This was a not-particularly exciting Olive Thomas vehicle.
