In this programmer, Bessie Barriscale plays Mary Ware, a society girl who is in love with Ronald Cliffe (Forrest Stanley), a formerly wealthy man who has lost his fortune. Mary's mother would much rather have her marry Gray Sands (Harry Meyers), who has enough money to pay off some of her debts. So when Cliffe goes out West to work for his rival, Mary does her mother's bidding. But Gray turns out to be a nasty character who abuses Mary when he discovers that she doesn't love him. Cliffe returns, having made his fortune back, and this inflames Gray's jealousy. He claims that Cliffe has robbed his safe and has him arrested, but Mary's testimony gets him off. The Sands separate, and Mary becomes a schoolteacher, while Cliffe heads for South America. Eventually, the hero and heroine are reunited.
