Nell Fanshawe (Martin) has so many suitors that she does not know what to do, and against her parents’ wishes she looks with favor upon John Stanley (Graves), who works in the village drug store. John becomes ambitious and goes to New York City to seek his fortune. He sells some valuable rugs to a wealthy lady and is persuaded by a discharged clerk to try his hand at cards. After he loses all of the firm's money in a poker game, he runs away. Nell goes to the city, obtains work in the same firm, and after she eventually finds John gets his position restored so in the end they find happiness. [3]
