On St. Valentine's Day, timid Jessie Wilcox receives no tribute of affection. Instead she receives sarcastic remarks from the young people who congregate at the post office. So the next day when Jessie receives a letter from her city relatives, she says that it is from her fiancé. She arranges for her cousin to send her daily "love" letters, buys a ring, and leaves, she says, to get married. In the city, Jessie seeks advice for her predicament from a fortuneteller and is locked in a room for several days until a white slaver says that she is not the kind of girl he wants. After Jessie reads about an unidentified body at the morgue, she claims it as her husband and plans to bring it home as proof of her marriage. The dead man's brother, Allan Avery, arrives to settle the estate with his brother's "widow." After Jessie confesses the ruse, she and Allan fall in love and marry, to the chagrin of Jessie's aunt, who wanted Allan for her daughter.
