This entertaining program feature was directed by John Ince. Ralph Merriwell (Herbert Rawlinson) has an argument with his wealthy father, Silas (William Turner), and decides to go live on his own terms. He finds work as a bellhop in a fancy Los Angeles hotel. Meanwhile, Silas' secretary, Betty Burton (Grace Darmond), wins a thousand dollars in a contest and uses the money to vacation in the very same hotel. But instead of checking in as Betty Burton, she poses as the Countess Fontaine. Ralph falls madly in love with her but complications ensue when the real Count and Countess Fontaine (Carleton Griffin and Vola Vale) show up at the hotel. A band of jewel thieves proceed to cause even more trouble. Ralph is responsible for foiling the crooks. Eventually he is reconciled to his father, and after he discovers Betty's real identity, they are united.
