While most other film companies were concentrating on features, the Lubin people were retrogressively churning out such 3-reels as The Only Way Out. Lured to a no-tell motel with the promise of a marriage, a pretty but naïve young stenographer is almost "ruined" by a rakish Romeo. Managing to escape this fate, she moves quickly to another town, where she finds happiness as the wife of a wealthy man. Unfortunately, her would-be seducer shows up, threatening to besmirch her good name if she doesn't grant him a few favors. Before long, the villain has been given an important job by the heroine's husband, who is still in the dark as to the relationship between his wife and his new employee. Quickly revealing himself to be as crooked as he is caddish, the bad guy comes to a sorry end -- at which point the film metamorphoses into a murder mystery, with the poor wife as the Number One Suspect.
