Confronted with the loss of a fortune, or immediate marriage, reluctant to forego her freedom, being as yet "heart-whole" and "fancy-free," she decides on a plan that allows a loophole. A homeless man, drifting, discouraged, is induced to become her husband, and paid a large amount on condition that he absent himself for a legal period, and then submit to a divorce. After the marriage he decides on a fitting celebration. Comfortably seated in a saloon, he muses o'er the strange adventure. In a reverie he sees again the woman he has wed. Amused at first, the "man within" awakes, and he resolves to meet Fate's jest with one to match, to earn a name and fortune, return and win the love of the woman he has wed. In the West, seeking gold, he prevents a stagecoach hold-up: among the passengers is an Eastern banker, from whom he receives an invitation to visit when in New York. Striking it rich, he returns East at the time appointed, meets his wife at the banker's under an assumed name. It is a case of love at first sight, but her happiness is shadowed by the memory of her hasty marriage. Her lawyer advises that her husband will be on hand at the time agreed. Timidly facing her ordeal, she hears the visitor announced, rises, in dread, and meets the man she loves! Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
