Laura Bell, a winsome young miss, while spending her vacation at a fashionable summer resort, is besieged with suitors. She announces that she will marry the one who gives her the most acceptable present within a week. Jack gives her candy by the ton; Tom sends her flowers every hour in the day, but Sam goes into the fight more extravagantly and buys jewelry. Ben, the last, but not the least (in Laura's mind), can think of nothing that will put him in the race. Time wanes and the last day has arrived; they all, with the exception of Ben, go bathing. While the boys and Laura are enjoying themselves in the ocean. Ben is walking the beach. At a lucky moment for Ben, while the boys are talking to some other girls, Laura meets with an accident. Ben, who has been watching her, sees the predicament she is in, rushes away and soon returns with a paper of safety pins, which proves by far to be the most acceptable offering.
