As described in a film magazine,[4] although her aunt had planned that Jacqueline Cartaret (Griffith) would marry the bookworm Ernest Augarde (Vane), Jacqueline loves Andre de Juvigny (Burns) and they are eventually married. But Andre previously had a flirtation with Lucia de Morfontaine (Deshon), and when Jacqueline hears of this she makes Andre promise to never see Lucia again. When Lucia calls on Andre when Jacqueline is out, Jacqueline, angered, decides to pay him back and starts a flirtation with Ernest, which arouses the jealousy of his lady secretary. However, Andre is confident of Jacqueline's consistency, and when Ernest learns that the woman he loved has used him as a dupe, he readily turns to his secretary for consolation.
