Storyline

When her husband Jim strikes it rich, Grace, who has had a life-long fear of poverty, strictly raises her daughter Florence to accept only luxury. Then, when Florence is old enough to have suitors, she quickly rejects Durland, a penniless artist, and marries Alfred Griffin, a rich playboy. She soon finds out, however, that Alfred is unfaithful and a spendthrift, and so they soon become bitter enemies. In a final effort to ruin Florence's life, Alfred neatly arranges evidence to make her look like his murderer and then commits suicide. The butler, however, who saw everything, is able to clear Florence of the charge, and afterward she rushes to Durland, with whom she makes plans to get married. Written by Pamela Short
