As a test of the bravery of one of the young men, she arranges for two others to dress as burglars and break into the store at night when she and Gordon True (Meighan) are there.

As described in a film magazine, Barbara Archibald (Clark) objects to being pushed into the background and, to give her family something to think about, declares that she is in love and is about to be married and end it all. She is amazed of the effect of her remark and thereupon invents a name for her lover and buys a photograph of a likely looking chap to impersonate him. Matters become complicated when Carter Brooks (Barrie), an old friend of the family, announces to Bab that he knows her new found friend and promises to bring him to a party so Bab can meet him. He also volunteers to deliver an impassioned love note she penned to her imaginary sweetheart Valentine, the name she had selected for him. An actor made up like the photograph is introduced to Bab and persists in his attentions until she flees from the house. She thinks of the love note and goes to the actor's apartment to secure it. An alarm is raised and she is found by the police apparently drowning in the bathtub, into which she had fallen. Matters are straightened up at home and she is sent back to school in disgrace.

Origine Etats-Unis
Genres Comédie, Comédie romantique, Romance
Acteurs Marguerite Clark, Nigel Barrie, Frank Losee, Cyril Chadwick, Vernon Steele

As described in a film magazine, Bab (Clark) is in love with Adrian (Steele), an actor, and cuts his picture out of a newspaper and worships it. An epidemic of measles breaks out and Bab is sent home. A few days later Bab learns that the play with her idol is in town, so she borrows money to see a performance with her hero. She writes him a note, and he invites her into his dressing room. She learns that unless the show gets more publicity, it will close. She arranges with Carter Brooks (Barrie) and her father (Losee) for Adrian to apply for work at her father's ammunition factory, and after he is thrown out the story will be in the newspapers. However, the Honorable Page Beresford (Chadwick), who is after Bab's sister Leila's (Greene) hand and fortune, arrives at the factory to place an order for shells and, mistaken for Adrian, gets thrown out. When the real Adrian applies for work, he is hired and not allowed to leave, and misses the matinee performance. His irate wife, searching for Adrian, soon puts matters right. Bab succumbs to the measles and the revelation that Adrian is married completely shatters her thoughts of romance, at least for the time being.
