"Sunshine Molly'' enters the oil town in search of work. Her first good deed is to help old Pete, whom she had met on the road, to carry his heavy bundle. She is seen to do this by "Bull" Forrest. Old Pete shows her the boarding house and she applies for work. Mrs. O'Brien and her daughter, Patsy, a slovenly girl, who have to do all the work, are tired out and seeing in Molly a willing worker, hire her and she starts in at once. "Bull" Forrest enters the dining room at this point and announces: "There's a new female in town." He is reproved by old Pete as Molly enters with food, and Bull in a spirit of bravado pinches her. Molly is furious, breaks a plate on his head and tells him to keep his hands to himself. Bull leaves the dining room in a rage. Pat O'Brien, whose wife runs the boarding house, owns an oil well in which he has sunk all his money and is greatly worried because it shows no sign of producing. Old Pete, now very weak and near the end, makes Bull a witness to his will in which he leaves his land and all on it to Molly. In the meantime Pat's well turns out to be a gusher and the O'Brien family move to town and enter society. The Widow Budd takes charge of the eating house during their absence and falls hopelessly in love with all her boarders, who show a preference for her daughter. At this juncture Mrs. O'Brien engages a professional matchmaker to find a man of family to marry her daughter. She is successful and on making known her intention of giving a reception to announce the engagement. Pat thinks it will be a good chance to give his old cronies in the oil fields a treat, so he secretly invites them to the reception. The night arrives and Mrs. O'Brien and her daughter, whom she now calls Patricia, are flattered by the large attendance of polite society, when who should file in but the workmen from the oil fields. Consternation follows, and Pat's wife is furious that he should have dared to invite such common people. Pat, angry at the insult to his cronies, departs with them to the oil fields, leaving his wife and daughter in sore straits, as the fiancée demands a marriage settlement. Bull Forrest has been shunned by his fellow workmen on account of his insult to Molly, and worried so over it that his nerves became affected, his sight troubled him and caused him to act so queerly that he was thought to be insane, and all avoided him. Molly discovered him stricken senseless one night, took him to his room and doctored him and his hate turned to love. Mrs. O'Brien with Patricia and her fiancée were compelled to follow Pat to Oilfield and on arriving were given a cool reception by the workmen, and the fiancée in retaliation tells them that he knows "Sunshine Molly" and that she has been a jailbird. The men are enraged at this insult to one whom they all think so highly of, and hurry him into the dining room where Molly is and demand to hear what he knows about her. Molly says that he is quite right as she was arrested once for attacking a man who would not keep his hands to himself, and pointing to him, tells the men that they will find a scar on his left shoulder. Bull tears the clothes away and reveals the scar, the men at once kick him out and he swears to be revenged. That night he sets fire to the oil field, which is destroyed, and Bull seeing him do the dastardly deed, pursues him to an old derrick where he climbs to the top, pursued by Bull. A part of the ladder breaks and the traducer is dashed to the ground and killed. Bull is carried to the boarding house and placed in Molly's room where he is tenderly cared for by Molly. Overcome by her kindness he sends a note to her by Pat asking her to have someone else wait on him, as "he can't keep his hands off her." Molly answers the note in person and tells him that loving each other as they do, it would not be long before, "a man can lay his hands on his wife."

He proposes to Marguerite during the progress of a dance at her home. She accepts him and the betrothal is overheard by Law, who in a moment of passion quarrels with Kingston and strikes him. The latter, remembering the respect he owes his hostess, restrains his anger and refuses to retaliate. Cowardice is despised by the pretty Marguerite, and she breaks off the engagement. The rumor of lack of courage reaches his club, and when he arrives there, he is shunned by his fellow members. Marguerite, while on the Brooklyn Bridge with young Law, looks down at the river below and in a flippant mood dares Law to leap over, even with the aid of a parachute. Law is piqued by her dare and tells his friends at the club, who make the attempt interesting for him by putting up a liberal amount of money that he will not do it. Kingston overhears the conversation and arranges to be on the boat the day the leap is made. Law has his parachute on the bridge and he makes the jump successfully. After reaching the water, however, he is seized with a cramp and is within an ace of sinking when Kingston throws off his coat, forgetting the wrong that the drowning man has done him, and leaps to his rescue. They are both pulled up on the boat and when the exhausted man recovers his senses, he apologizes to Kingston, and thanks him for his bravery. Marguerite then realizes her mistake, and knows she cares for him alone.
