Paddy O'Hara, the star reporter on The London Blade , is dispatched to cover the war between the two Balkan principalities, Darbaya and Ideria. Before leaving, he comes across a photograph of a military officer, Count Ivan of Darbaya and his niece, Lady Maryska. Paddy, attired in an Iderian uniform, arrives in Darbaya just as the principality is about to fall to the Iderians, and to save Maryska from from the conquerers, marries her. After many adventures, the pair escape to safety, but as Paddy is wiring the story to the home office, Maryska is whisked away in a plane piloted by Count Carlos, her former suitor. Summoned home by the foreign embassy, Paddy arrives in London to be offered a large bribe in return for the annulment of his marriage. Enraged, Paddy proclaims that he will find the wife he loves and never give her up. Overhearing Paddy's remarks, Maryska, who had been taken to the embassy by Carlos, comes out of hiding and proclaims her love for her husband.
