This Lubin three-reeler was a good, solid program picture. Although minister and settlement worker Walter Stanley (Alan Forrest) loves his assistant, Maude Preston (Adda Gleason), he lets her go when she becomes involved with Dean Carroll, a young doctor (Cecil Van Auker). Carroll's former partner, Earl Bond (George Routh), has married an heiress, Theda Henderson (Evelyn Page), and when her father (Ben Hopkins) falls ill, he calls Carroll in on the case. Carroll becomes overworked and temporarily hands Mr. Henderson back to Bond and his nurse (Lucy Payton) while he gets some rest. But Bond and the nurse spend their time carrying on a flirtation, and accidentally administer the wrong medicine. Henderson dies, and in a panic the pair decide to pin the death on Carroll. Carroll, believing he was in the wrong, collapses and then flees. Maude believes her husband has committed suicide and is comforted by Stanley. After dissolving his guilt in alcohol, Bond decides to do some good and helps Stanley in the settlements. When he comes down with diphtheria he finally confesses his wrongdoing, and tells Stanley of Carroll's whereabouts. Although he and Maude have renewed their romance, Stanley goes to Carroll and brings him back. Carroll realizes that Maude loves the minister and is willing to give her up, but she returns to him.
