Storyline

Hayden, diamond merchant in Denton's, the fashionable jeweler's, grabs a man for stealing a diamond ring and hauls him to the office. To his surprise the thief is set free by the proprietor who tells him that the rule of Denton's is that it is better to let a thousand thieves get away than have the public dream that such a thing as a theft is possible in Denton's establishment. He warns Hayden on this point. A few days later a woman with a forced letter of introduction from a society women calls and wants to buy an emerald brooch. Hayden shows her one worth $15,000, and while she is looking at others, slips it into her bag. He is about to raise an alarm, but remembers his employer's reproof. So he lets her go, follows her, bound to get that brooch back somehow. On the street a pickpocket tries to steal his watch and he grabs the man. He makes him go after Mrs. Delavan and pick her bag of the brooch. Then Hayden seizes it from him, and gets it back to the store, whence he telephones ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
