Kitty Tyron and her Aunt Eleanor spend a few weeks at the Lakeside Hotel. Auntie vigorously chaperons Kitty, and, at the same time is anxiously watching her own chances, for she is really tired of single blessedness. They both appear on the beach in fetching bathing suits, much to the disadvantage of the elderly lady. Kitty is very popular with the young fellows, but it is hard to get a quiet gossip for auntie is always on the chaperon job. There is one, however, who thinks auntie is "It," the hotel porter, who never misses a chance to be attentive. The boys, wishing to get a few minutes alone with Kitty, will sometimes give the porter a dollar to decoy auntie away. Auntie is determined to attract attention and one day, measuring the water at the edge of the lake with a stick, intentionally falls in and James rescues her. Then comes the news that the old maid has received a fortune of $2,000,000. The boys all fall over each other to be attentive, but the porter gets the prize.
