Ranchman John Keyes (George Chesboro) comes to New York City and falls for a musical comedy star, Fritzi Carlyle (Olive Thomas). Her press agent (Dana Ong), who sees a chance for some headlines, urges her to encourage Keyes' suit. She becomes engaged to him then breaks it off, all of which appears in bold type. The broken-hearted Keyes returns to the ranch, but a year later, when he reads that Fritzi has had a nervous breakdown, he rushes back to New York and snatches her off to the West to recuperate. Even though she goes unwillingly, she winds up flourishing there, and when detectives finally locate her, she insists that the kidnapping was really a publicity stunt. She stays in Arizona to become Keyes' wife.
