"There's many a slip betwixt the cup and the lip," the adage has it, and so it proves with young Bobby Hopper. His father wants him to marry the daughter of his business competitor in order to consolidate the businesses. Bobby refuses, and his father employs Jim Dykeman, an ex-convict, to force the marriage. Dykeman plans to kidnap the two and force them into marriage. He gets Bobby but mistakes the girl for her maid, Yvonne. Bobby and Yvonne effect a thrilling escape, fall in love with each other and are married. Just how it turns out for the best is told in the next chapter. Sure the whole thing is just the picturization of a newspaper story a hobo is reading.
