After Martin Tompkins (William V. Mong) makes a fortune in munitions, his ambitious wife (Betty Paterson) is determined to make an entree into society. One day she drives past the Allenby estate and mistakes the family's daughter Louise (Emmy Wehlen) for a maid and offers her a position as a social secretary. Louise is amused by this and accepts. When fortune hunters attempt to swindle the Tompkins, Louise is able to put a halt to their plans. Then Richard Tompkins (Jack Mulhall) comes back from college and sees through Louise's ruse. But he has the same sense of humor she does, and decides to go to work for the Allenbys as a groom. Not long after, he becomes a bridegroom -- to Louise.
