The "her" in this Edison three-reeler is the young wife of a millionaire. Bored with her cloistered existence, the heroine decides to become a writer. When her first effort is published, she is encouraged to continue in her new vocation, despite the protests of her society friends. Embarking upon a book about slum life, she goads her husband into doing her research by journeying to a notorious low-life dive. He does, and here he meets a young woman, who passes herself off as a gun moll. Amused, the husband pretends to be a notorious safecracker, never realizing that his companion is a female crime reporter. By the time her husband has extricated himself from the ensuing devastating dilemma, the literary-minded wife has decided to abandon her vocation and return to domesticity.
