Bruce Henderson (Herbert Rawlinson) owns a high class gaming parlor frequented by Colonel Phillipot, a gambling addict who works for the government's ordinance department. Henderson meets the Colonel's daughter, Bernice (Anna Little) at the White House inaugural ball and they fall in love. To become worthy of her he decides to close his parlor. Unfortunately that doesn't thrill her father, who is a big loser there and was hoping to have a chance to win back what he owes. The amount of his IOU to Henderson is so high that he has to deed his home to him. But Henderson puts the deed in Bernice's name and gives it to her. This causes a misunderstanding between Bernice, her father, who won't explain how the deed got to Henderson, and the Colonel's son, Jim, who thinks he is being cut out of his father's estate. The Colonel argues with Henderson over this and it leads to a duel. Meanwhile, Jim has gotten himself involved with an international spy and is forced to steal gun plans in his father's possession. When the time for the duel comes, Henderson sacrifices himself by shooting in the air, but is only wounded by the Colonel's shot. He finds out that the spy has the plans and tries to take the blame himself to protect Bernice's brother. But Jim confesses, and so does the gambling-mad Colonel. All of this finally enables Bernice and Henderson to be together.
