Patterson, the husband, assaults the lawyer in his office, and in self defense, MacFarlane shoots and kills him. He is arrested and convicted for murder. Several months before this MacFarlane has advised Audrey Austin, a young illustrator, whose home is in the western town, to go to New York to realize her ambitions. The girl has not succeeded in the big town, and in her lonely disheartened state, has become intimate with a Mrs. Carson, who is the accomplice of Henry Dupree, a crook. MacFarlane, knowing that his conviction is unjust, escapes to New York. He chances to run into Audrey and her pretended friends just in time to save her from being made the scapegoat of a robbery which they have perpetrated. In bringing the crooks to justice, MacFarlane is obliged to disclose his identity. His offense, however, is pardoned on his return west with Audrey, who becomes his wife.
