Kitty Mitchell, secretary to Sir William Rutherford, marries Herbert Seaton, an architect who promises her more than he is able to provide. Finding it increasingly difficult to keep up appearances, Seaton engages in speculation, while his wife, against his wishes, does some secretarial work for Sir William, who sends her a $25 check. To prevent her cashing it, Seaton changes it to read $2,500. After Dawkins, a promoter, obtains the altered check and cashes it, Sir William destroys it, and Kitty, who has left Seaton because of his drinking, attempts to explain matters. Herbert, however, admits the truth, and the couple decide to begin a new life in Canada.
