Synopsis

Walter Huntley purchases a pair of embroidered evening slippers for his fiancée, Mabel Brown, but after she breaks off their engagement, he gives them to his maid. Mrs. Leffingwell, meanwhile, buys an identical pair to wear to a fashionable dance, where she so impresses Walter that Mr. Leffingwell leaves the ballroom in anger. As he passes Walter's room later that evening, he sees a woman remove the embroidered slippers from her feet, and although it is only the maid trying on her new shoes, Leffingwell believes that his wife has succumbed to Walter's overtures. On a stormy evening soon afterwards, Mrs. Leffingwell attends a dinner at which Walter and Mabel, who are on the verge of a reconciliation, are also present, but when Mr. Leffingwell arrives, he finds his wife's slippers drying by the fire. Just as the jealous husband is about to leave his wife for good, the maid appears with her matching pair of shoes, and the Leffingwells' marriage is saved.
