Synopsis

Mr. Wheeler, the head of a temperamental family, hires a former soldier, Clarence, to do odd jobs around his house. Clarence immediately falls in love with Violet Pinney, the governess, who is suspected by Mrs. Wheeler to be the object of her husband's affections and resented by Cora. When Clarence and Violet prevent Cora from eloping with money-seeking Hubert Stem, Mr. Wheeler's private secretary, Stem finds a clipping about Charles Smith, a deserter. He shows it to Mr. Wheeler and insists that Charles Smith and Clarence are one and the same. Wheeler is inclined to believe Stem, since he has noticed his wife's admiring glances toward Clarence. But a letter arrives revealing Clarence to be a university professor about to regain his position; Violet accepts him, and all are reconciled.
