Plot

As described in a film magazine, [4] because her wealthy aunt and guardian Heppy (Chapment) is about to evict a poor family that lives on the estate, Lindy (Martin) destroys the letter which she believes demands that they vacate the premises. A robbery is committed in the neighborhood and Dick Ross (Hughes), a reformed crook who has been in Aunt Heppy's services, believes Lindy is in league with the crooks. Lindy thinks that he knows of her fancied crime and half confesses to him. To shield her he is about to confess to the crime when the tramp who is guilty and who had been fed and clothed by the generous Lindy clears up the mystery concerning the robbery. Lindy then tells him of the letter, and he informs her that it was not so important a document as she had imagined, and that she is not in danger of arrest. They then plight their troth.
