Robert Newton, a young businessman, and his mother give a house party at his shooting lodge in the Adirondack Mountains.

Nevins proposes to Inez and is refused laughingly. While sitting on the veranda later on, Inez sees Robert and Vera start for a walk and follows them, over hearing Robert propose, and being rejected, because he was too practical.

Seven days later he arrives and camps near the lodge. Inez then takes Vera ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
