When the money-grubbing Harriet Gray (Josephine Crowell) forecloses on the local orphanage, the townspeople provide for the displaced children. Reverend Deady (Spottiswoode Aitken) and his two daughters, Judy (Bessie Love) and Abigail (Pauline Starke), take in seven of the tykes. When Mrs. Gray offers to put one of the orphan boys to work as a dishwasher, Judy disguises herself in pants and takes the position. Even though her identity is discovered, her winsome ways win over the old lady -- and win the heart of her son, Horace (Kenneth Harlan). This programmer was a typical comedy drama vehicle for Bessie Love.
