Storyline

Constance and Billy are sweethearts. Mr. and Mrs. Boggs, her parents, are both prim, straitlaced people, who are heathen in foreign lands. Pa Boggs has little use for young men of the present generation and when Billy awkwardly drops a race-track badge on the floor, Boggs rises up in his wrath and orders the "perfidious gambler" from his house forever. The old hypocrite later sees a newspaper item reading, "Liveliest cabaret in town at the Rose Garden," puts on his high hat and, after telling his wife he must attend a meeting of the Foreign Missions Society, sallies forth to the Rose Garden whistling, "I Love the Ladies." Billy, with some of his friends, enter the Rose Garden, and that young man almost faints on seeing Boggs flirting outrageously with one of the dancers. Billy tells his friends of a startling plan, they induce one of the performers to help, and Billy dresses up in some women's clothes. With a wig and plenty of rouge on his lips, he trips lightly out among the audience... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
