At last, after years of toil, Tourney sees prospects of sending his daughter, Constance, to college. He has just struck a paying streak and the investigator from a mining investing company is on his way out to assay the find. When the expert arrives it is a foregone conclusion that he will win the heart of little Constance. Unfortunately he is forced to return to his company and report the mine a poor investment, thus shattering the fond dreams of father and daughter. Moore, the investigator, returns to the city, leaving an aching heart longing for him, and, on his arrival marries Joyce Denton. For a time, they live happily, then, after a short trip for his concern, Moore returns to find his wife in the arms of another man. Knowing that she cannot be happy with him. Moore releases her and she weds her admirer, Ralston. Meanwhile, Tourney has struck it rich and Constance realizes her ambition of going to college.

When Ralston is drowned, Joyce is fearful of what the future has in store for her, as she will be unable to support herself. Then she thinks of her first husband, and confident of his devotion goes to him. At first sight, Moore is overjoyed at seeing her and embraces her affectionately. She tells him the purpose of her call and he immediately falls in line with her suggestion, but then he remembers his wife and baby, and flinging Joyce from him, returns to them.
