~Plot Synopsis~
Tom Wilson, reared by his widowed mother in a small town, goes to New York after Judge Belknap,
his sweetheart Jane's father, says he will not allow their marriage until Tom can support her in
comfort. In New York, Tom gets a fifteen-dollar-a-week job as a clerk, and becomes infatuated with
Amy Leroy, a chorus girl, whom he believes combines the qualities of Venus and Diana. Amy teases
Tom both to irritate her lover, playboy Jimmy Michaelson, and to amuse herself, but it causes Tom to
lose Jane, as well as his job, which he had neglected. When he learns of Jane's reasons for pursuing
him, Tom nearly commits suicide, but Merkle, a newspaperman who befriended him, stops Tom and
suggests they start a newspaper in Tom's hometown with the money that their friend, ticket
speculator Weinstein, won at roulette. After the newspaper succeeds, Jane forgives Tom and the
judge agrees to their marriage.
