Miss Barry plays a chambermaid who having read a romance novel, is waiting for her hero. The scene is in the apartment of Lieut. Harry Montrose. The chambermaid delcares her love for him and he strings her along until he is summoned to meet his fiance. This “joke” leaves the chambermaid in tears. Mr.Wilson took advantage of comedy opportunities and Mr.Alden presented a manly looking officer.
