Cynthia Martin, taunted by her younger sisters, professes to have married by proxy a Maj. John Smith of Nicaragua, who then, she claims, rejoined his regiment. When she meets handsome Donald Woodward, they are mutually attracted, and in order to "free" herself, Cynthia "kills off" her husband by publishing an account of his death in New York newspapers. Reading his own death notice, the real Major Smith comes to the Martin home, announcing himself as a close friend of Cynthia's late husband. She fearfully plays the part of the bereaved widow until Smith reveals his identity and demands his rights as a husband. Finding that he actually loves her, Cynthia surrenders.
