Storyline

At a café, a young lady's handkerchief falls to the floor, just as a young man passes, who, quickly picking it up, returns it to her. Her escort, a Frenchman, slaps the young man's face for his kindness. Friends stop a further disturbance. Later, the young man receives a card, inviting him to a duel. He accepts, but after regrets. His friends, knowing that he is no swordsman, sends a letter to the Frenchman's pretty one, telling her to stop the duel, as the young man is an expert swordsman. On the field of honor, where the two are preparing for the terrible duel, the young lady arrives just in time to stop the conflict. The young man is much relieved, and "scoots" off, much to the disgust of the Frenchman. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
