As described in a film magazine, because his fiancee has deceived him, Robert Courtland (Warwick) decides to end his own life. He tries to shoot himself but is interrupted by the telephone. His next attempt is to be beneath the wheels of a fast train. After he has been resting peacefully some time on a carpet and cushion waiting for the train, Kitty Grey (Hammerstein), escaping from an undesirable marriage, calls on Robert for help in fixing her automobile. Robert decides then that he does not want to die after all. They find themselves in an embarrassing position when rain forces them to seek shelter at a farmhouse, and the kindly farmers take them for man and wife. The next day the irate Mr. Gray (Norcross) locates his runaway daughter and puts her in a girls' school, where Robert finds her. With the assistance of a teacher who has loved and lost, Robert and Kitty carry their elopement to a successful finish.
