Instead of letting his family choose an appropriate wife, the Duke of Loame (Matt Moore) falls in love with Ivis Benson (Olive Thomas), the daughter of the farmer of his estate. They marry, but the family physician falsely tells Ivis that she will not be able to bear children. This news is upsetting to Ivis, as she knows the Duke needs an heir to carry out the family name. She decides to divorce him, but since he loves her this is easier said than done. She tries to disgrace him by pretending to be a drunk and then runs away. But the Duke finds out from a maid the reason for her behavior and goes in search of her. He finally tracks her down and after they are reconciled, she has a son. This picture was a lesser Olive Thomas vehicle.
