Ralph Arnold, a wealthy young clubman, is driving his guests across country when the harness of his tally-ho team breaks and they are forced to go to the nearest farmhouse while repairs are made. His companions are Count de Braglo, an adventurer; Mira Brown and Lucille Wood (two society birds hunting a fortune), and several social chaperons. Ralph meets Dorothy Ogden, a simple unspoiled beauty. Of course the artful Mira does all she can to drive off this fresh young beauty, but Ralph listens to the call of the heart and finally marries Dorothy Ogden. The bloodsucking men who have lived on his bounty are loath to lose him, and the Count de Braglo, his false friend, lures him on with cards, with wine and with women to shake the charm of poor, lonely, modest little Dorothy, his wife, and finally, by stock tricks, manipulated the market against him and captured the greater part of his fortune. Then the young man comes to himself. They desert the lures of the great city and begin life anew.
