The crooked butler (Paul Weigel) and maid (Florence Turner) of wealthy Martin Wayland (DeWitt Jennings) concoct an elaborate scam to separate the old man from his dough. First, they frame Wayland's son Harry (Freddie Frederick) on a charge of theft and force the lad to leave the premises. Then, they hire Elinor (Barbara Bedford), a widowed mother, and bring her into the household, claiming that the girl is Harry's new bride. Convinced that she's been hired merely to provide chaste companionship to lonely old Mr. Wayland, Elinor discovers the truth when Harry returns. The villains are foiled, Elinor and Harry fall in love, and the audience goes home happy.
