During the Great War, even the little Lee sisters got involved in the patriotic efforts. Here, Jane and Katherine Lee play the daughters of chemist Andrew Sheldon (Charles Slattery). He has an explosive which he intends to give to the government, but at the moment he's so focused on the imminent arrival of a new baby that he hasn't noticed that his butler (P.C. Hartigan) and cook (Florence Ashbrooke) are German spies. Jane and Katherine, however, are doing all they can to make life hell for the servants. Then, when their baby brother is born, they decide to run away to New York and enlist. They find out that's impossible, so instead they procure recruits for the Navy and get subscriptions for the Fourth Liberty Loan. The butler has run off with Andrew's explosives but is caught by agents. The plans, meanwhile, have always been in the little girls' hands.
