A woman named Diane Winston (Fannie Ward) is introduced, by her father, to an unscrupulous stockbroker. But Diane is already in love with someone else, the stockbroker's secretary named John Clarke. The stockbroker loans an expensive pearl necklace to Diane and she gives it to John to return to the stockbroker. The stockbroker pretends to have not received the necklace back. Her father dies from shock, and Diane decides to work for the stockbroker in order to pay back her debt to him. John decides to enter the stock-market to raise money. The stockbroker tries to use his money to destroy John's chances. Diane finds the necklace in the stockbroker's office and realizes he lied about it. She takes it and sells it and gives the money to John. He uses the money to fight against the stockbroker's attacks and ends up making a lot of money on the market so that they can make plans for marriage.
