Synopsis

Dick Clayton and Claire Marsh fall in love in Paris, and their respective parents come to the Continent to break up the match. Mrs. Clayton is so insulting in her determination to save Dick from Claire that Claire decides to teach her a lesson: she lures Dick into proposing in the hearing of Mrs. Clayton and then turns him down. Dick goes to Venice to paint and forget; Claire quickly follows him, and they make up. Dick becomes jealous of one of Claire's admirers, they quarrel again, and Claire returns to Paris. Dick soon follows and saves her from a fire. They make plans to be married.
