Downtrodden Professor Griggs has a daughter, Amelia, a clerk in the public library, who is admired by Phil West, one of her father's pupils; but because he is from a wealthy family she keeps her distance. She is likewise admired by a poor minister and by young Olsen, their neighbor's son. When Amelia is taken ill, her mother is unable to provide her with enough nourishment and steals a chicken from her neighbor's kitchen. Phil West intervenes to help the Griggs family; and after persuading his father, a college trustee, to increase the professor's salary, Amelia and Phil become engaged. Amelia finds that her mother has returned the chicken, and happiness comes to all.
