Anne Gray (Ruth Clifford) runs off with Robert Gordon (William E. Lawrence), believing that he is going to marry her. When they arrive at a hotel, another guest, Langdon Van Kreel (Charles Clary), sees though Gordon's ploy and chases him away. While Van Kreel is being thanked by Anne, detectives secretly photograph them together -- his wife, Marcia (May Mersch), is planning a divorce and is trying to drum up evidence. Anne gets a job on a conservative newspaper edited by John Manning (Niles Welch), who falls in love with her. Unbeknownst to Manning or anyone else on the paper, the managing editor, Fred Galvin (Hayden Stevenson) owns a scandal sheet. Anne goes to interview Marcia Van Kreel about her divorce and finds herself accused of destroying the marriage. Manning finally has it out with Galvin, who admits that he was running a blackmail scheme. Anne's name is cleared and the Van Kreels make up.
