Henry Lester--a millionaire wary of women because he was jilted in early youth by a girl in favor of a man she thought richer than he--meets and falls in love with Sally Raeburn. Sally is chaperoned by her "aunt," Mrs. Steese, a scheming adventuress who rescued her from poverty and has made Sally promise to "marry for money" to repay her. Sally returns Lester's affections, but he discovers the scheme and vows revenge. He rescues a man named Hastings from the gutter and passes him off to Mrs. Steese as a wealthier and more desirable match for Sally. His scheme works too well, and he finds himself jealous. Sally and Lester are reconciled, however, and she agrees to become his wife.
