Bud Tilden, a mountaineer, is in love with Jeannette. Hank Holliday, his rival, tries to win the girl away from Bud. Finding this useless, he resorts to mean methods. He places an improper book in Bud's pocket and then, before all the men, he takes it out and shows them the sort of literature Bud reads. He decides that Jeannette must know of it, so wrapping up the book, he addresses it to Jeannette and drops it in the mall. Determined that his sweetheart shall not see the volume, Bud holds up the carrier and secures the book. He is apprehended and arrested. But at his trial, when the judge hears the whole story, Bud is freed and Hank is taken into custody.
