Synopsis by Janiss Garza

Walter Crane makes a bet with a group of his fellow women-hating clubmen that he can take a pretty girl and cultivate her so as to inspire any of them to propose marriage. His choice turns out to be a newsgirl named Cinders (Marie Doro). He sends her to college and, when she returns, all the men do fall in love with her. But Crane has lost his fortune and is forced to work as a bank teller, so one of the men, Gage, tells Cinders that her benefactor can no longer afford her. As a result, she vanishes. But when Crane is accused of stealing 20,000 dollars from the bank, she returns to help him clear his name. Through her efforts she discovers that Gage took the money to buy a necklace for his mistress (Maym Kelso). All bets are still off, however, because Crane's the one who gets Cinders.
