Synopsis

Newly rich, uncouth Cousin Egbert Floud wins Ruggles, the valet of a British gentleman, in a poker game during a sojourn in Europe with his wife, Effie, and, to his family's chagrin, introduces Ruggles to Red Gap as a colonel. The people of Red Gap treat "Colonel" Ruggles as an honored guest. Ruggles' former employer visits them and falls in love with Kate Kenner, from the other side of the tracks. The chap's brother is summoned to break up the match: he does so by marrying Kate. Meanwhile Ruggles has opened a successful restaurant and married Emily Judson, charming protegée of Kate Kenner.
