Successful railroad executive Craig (Lewis Stone) shares a stenographer, Kate (Gladys Hanson) with the not-so-successful Hessert (Bryant Washburn). The two men are in love with the girl, but Craig marries her, while Hessert comes to live with them. This is a recipe for disaster, and the inevitable happens -- Craig finds his wife and his friend in a compromising position. But instead of blowing his top and shooting them (a favorite plot complication in the silent era), he offers to let Hessert have his wife -- on the condition that he can board with them after they have been married. They agree, but having Craig around as a constant reminder of their adultery is more than the marriage can take. Craig wins Kate back, and Hessert leaves. This was an adaptation of a play by H.S. Sheldon.
