Hal Collins has just presented his fiancée, Marion Franks, with an engagement ring. Her mother gives her a watch to match the ring.

She is alone in the sitting room when he approaches her and presents the watch. She is more than delighted and gives him a rose from her hair.

Previously he has visited the pawnbroker's and purchased Marion's watch. He concludes it ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
