When Virginian Judge Lee Sands (Charles Brandt) is ruined by a Wall Street manipulator, his daughter Beulah (Gerda Holmes) heads north to New York City and obtains work as a stenographer. But she's not just trying to make her way in a cruel world; she's working for Peter Brownley (Clarence Harvey), the man who double-crossed her father. She sneaks around to help get investment information for her father -- and also evidence to destroy Brownley. But she also falls in love with her employer's son, Robert (Robert Warwick). Robert catches her at her tricks and locks her in his office until the close of the stock market. She confesses all and he forgives her. The couple's love helps reconcile their warring fathers. This picture was based on a story by Thomas W. Lawson.
