~Plot Synopsis~
Salesgirl Marion Hoyte, unlike the other members of her family, seeks to rise from her lowly station
in life; thus, when she accidentally becomes acquainted with young architect James Lodge, who
clears her of the charge of stealing a customer's purse, Marion accepts his attentions. Leroy, a suitor
for Marion, and her sister Bertha object, but Marion soon becomes engaged to James. Shipley, a
financier, plans that James will marry his daughter, Gwendolyn, and will be engaged to plan the new
state capitol building; but when Marion and James are married, Shipley withdraws his patronage
and Marion is ostracized by James's social set. Determined not to ruin her husband's career, Marion
arranges a fake elopement with Clifford Trent. When Marion learns that James has been injured in a
western mining camp, however, she goes to his aid; and through this twist of fate their love is
reawakened.
