Storyline

Among the prohibitions contained in the ordinances of Cordeliaville are "Lovers" and "Babies," and the law is prosecuted in this village by the Women's League, but lovers know no laws and Babe Hardy and Kate Price are no exception. Meanwhile a woman arrives in town with a baby and seeing the notice hides the baby. Babe and Kate find the motherless child and decide to take it home. The Women's League in a body visits Kate's home, to protest against further love-making in Cordeliaville. Babe is at the house when they arrive and they find a sheepish expression on his face which perhaps is explained when the new-found baby begins to cry. The scandal is worse than if a murder had been committed in the village of Cordeliaville, and it takes many an explanation and unlooked for circumstance to -straighten out the mix-up.
