Old Ira Dayton (F.A. Turner) is a hypochondriac, so when Doc Arnold (Wilfred Lucas) says there is nothing wrong with him, he goes to a quack, Dr. Horatio Bell (Pomeroy Cannon), who proceeds to bilk him out of as much money as possible. The honest Doc Arnold is in love with Dayton's daughter, Jesse (Constance Talmadge), but Dayton disapproves of the match. Dr. Bell gets a ten thousand dollar check from Dayton, but Jesse goes to get it back. They struggle and the quack falls to the ground, mysteriously shot. Jesse is accused of murder, but Doc Arnold snoops around and discovers the shot was fired by a half-wit boy who became jealous when he saw Dr. Bell making love to the maid. After this, old man Dayton comes to his senses.
