Morton Gill, who has no scruples about the manner in which he obtains money for his support, makes the acquaintance, at a summer colony, of young and wealthy Mrs. Stoddard. Mr. Stoddard has made the common error of neglecting to appease the hunger in the heart of his wife by paying her some of the little attentions which won her during their courtship. Mrs. Stoddard, therefore, encourages Gill just a little. Gill attempts to borrow some money from Mrs. Stoddard. She refuses. He takes a necklace which she wears and it is then that Mrs. Stoddard realizes that she cannot complain without causing a scandal. There seems no hope for Mrs. Stoddard when her husband misses the necklace. But a deputy sheriff arranges things so that the thief is punished and Mrs. Stoddard learns a lesson.
