On their return from their wedding journey, Lillian and Billy make a pact to have "no girl friends, no club friends, only their two selves, always together." At first the plan works beautifully, but after a time the inevitable reaction back to normal begins. They become less demonstrative towards each other, and while their love is just as strong, both entertain secret longings to sit down and have a good chat with an old friend. At this opportune time, their maid leaves suddenly, to get married, and Lillian quietly goes to see Jean, an old school chum of hers. After some persuasion, Lillian gets the girl to take the maid's place, just for a joke. Billy hits on the same plan and invites an old club friend to stay at his home in the guise of his chauffeur. On the arrival of the new adjuncts to the household, they are introduced, and take an immediate liking to each other. Billy and Lillian see the two spooning and begin to worry, as, of course, each thinks the other's servant is the real article. A few days later, Lillian receives word that their erstwhile chauffeur and maid have eloped. Lillian feels terribly as she pictures to herself what will happen when Jean introduces her chauffeur husband to her aristocratic parents. Billy sees the note and experiences the same sensation about his friend. Then the two gloomily start in to explain their mutual breaking of the honeymoon pact. Surprise and delight follow, and after a hearty laugh, both look into each other's eyes and realize they are no different from the rest of the Newlyweds.

His health undermined, Hugh Storey, a young violinist, is ordered to the country to recuperate. At a little country farm house, he meets Lillian, a typical farm girl, sweet, wholesome and unspoiled. They fall in love, and after a picturesque courtship, are married. Hugh, now fully recovered in health and spirits, takes his bride back to the city with him. He introduces her to his artist friends, but Lillian feels very much out of place in her Bohemian surroundings, and soon becomes unhappy. Francois, a temperamental, but good-hearted and sincere friend of Hugh's, sees how matters are going, so he endeavors to patch up things in his own way. After teaching Lillian to sip wine, smoke cigarettes and dance, he takes her to a masquerade ball, where, in disguise, she meets her husband. Although he does not know who she is, Hugh is charmed with her grace and vivacity, and begs the fair unknown to reveal her identity. She laughingly refuses, but when unmasking time arrives, Hugh finds to his astonishment that he has been dancing with his own wife. He is delighted at first, but when the men begin to monopolize her attention, leaving him feeling like an outsider, he gets jealous. After the dance he gives a little celebration at his studio, and Lillian offers a toast to her advent into the magic circle of Bohemia, which brings forth rousing cheers. By this time, Hugh is feeling pretty glum, but when he complains to Lillian he prefers her as her old, sweet self, she retorts, "I'm only playing the game as I've watched you play it." After the others have gone, he promises to give up his present mode of living and Bohemianism tendencies, if she will do the same. She delightfully agrees, and the next time Francois sees them he finds a blissfully happy couple, leading a simple but happy domestic life.

The Methods of Margaret

A pleasant and easy-going …
A pleasant and easy-going boss, Dick Stanford, is imposed upon by Miss Blake, his flirtatious, gum-chewing stenographer. His wife, Margaret, has very strenuous objections to Miss Blake and her pert ways. The climax comes when Stanford, unexpectedly summoned to Chicago, decides to take his stenographer part way with him to finish some dictation. His wife and he have a quarrel and Dick demands that, since he does not interfere with her servants, she should let him manage his office help. She angrily goes home, dismisses her cook and maid and hires male servants and a secretary. When Stanford returns, he finds a great change in his quiet household. Margaret is busily engaged in going over some papers with her handsome, deferential secretary, while a loud-voiced, blasphemous cook in the kitchen, expresses himself rather forcibly. The other servants prove equally obstreperous when he protests against their impudence. Margaret tells him exactly what he told her when she objected to his stenographer, adding sharply, "Kindly do not interfere with my servants." After he has vented his rage on the butler, whom he finds smoking his best cigars, Dick begins to realize the fairness of Margaret's stand, and decides to compromise. But Margaret does not wish to compromise, and tells him plainly she intends keeping her servants as long as he keeps Miss Blake. He finally capitulates and discharges his stenographer and hires a man. Margaret, satisfied that her "methods" have proven a complete success, at once hires maids and peace is once more restored in the Stanford family.

Having developed a bad case of nerves, Lester Ridgeway is sent to Thorn's old homestead in the south and to rest up and get well. It happens that there is a family "ghost" in this mansion, at least so the legend avers. Ridgeway becomes infatuated with a portrait in the Thornleigh library of a dead ancestress, a very beautiful woman. Polly Allen, the great granddaughter of the woman in the portrait, becomes aware of Ridgeway's infatuation, and remembering that there is an old dress in the attic which was worn by the lady in the picture when she posed for the portrait, she dresses herself in the gown, and decides to compare herself with the portrait. Ridgeway sees her and thinks it is the woman of the portrait. Upon his insistence upon the resemblance, old Lindley tells him the story of the woman in the portrait. How she was deserted and killed herself and how it is said she appears every now and then, wandering disconsolately about the premises. Polly overhears the story and decides that Ridgeway needs excitement. She decides to give him all he is looking for. It is her belief that what Ridgeway needs to get well is to have his mind taken off himself. He must be made to become interested in something besides his own concern. She dresses in her great grandmother's dress, and leads Ridgeway a merry chase through the gardens of the estate and the great library. Thorn receives a letter from Ridgeway, telling him that he is deeply in love with the "ghost" lady, and intends to get her on the following Wednesday night, the anniversary of her death, when it is rumored that she will enact the tragedy of her life. Thorn thinks Ridgeway has gone mad. He persuades a specialist to come with him to Thornleigh and examine the stricken man. They find Ridgeway and a very substantial "ghost" lady in the garden, where all ends satisfactorily. Polly's prescription proves a real "cure-all."

What sad havoc a maid can make with men's hearts: she can turn friends into the most bitter enemies. This is exactly what happens when Jack and Mack happen upon the fair Lillie. The young lady's beau has gone away on a business trip and she is left all by her lonesome. To pass away the lagging hours, she flirts most outrageously with Jim and Mack, two fat men, and gets lots of fun out of their frenzied pursuit of her. They first meet Lillie at a fashionable entertainment, and once fall head and ears in love with her. Secretly flattered by their attentions, she flirts with them both and fans the flame of their obvious devotion, making them extremely jealous of each other. The next day they all meet at a theater and the men buy seats on each side of the girl, who has slyly let them see the number of her ticket. During the performance they both pester her nearly to death, crowding up near her and both attempting to speak at once, absolutely crushing her between them. In spite of the discomfiture she suffers, Lillie enjoys the fun and eggs them on all manner of extravagances, their enmity growing more bitter all the while. After the day of the theater party, she sees them again and again and finally announces that she is going to Atlantic City for a month's vacation. Jim and Mack both obtain leave of absence and present themselves to her at the hotel where she is staying. Their huge size makes their billing and cooing very evident to everyone and they become the stock joke of the beach. The greatest laugh of all, however, comes at a masquerade ball, where they make most violent love to the fair damsel. Her real "knight" appears on the scene and triumphantly bears off his lady, to the great discomfiture of Jim and Mack, who are left to console themselves as best they can.

She is about to stab him with his palette knife when she is interrupted by the appearance of Marie, sent to Angelo by his friend, Angelo is struck by her beauty and innocent ways and tells her that as soon as she has seen a little of life she will be his great Madonna. He takes her to a restaurant where they again meet the infuriated Toto. In a jealous rage Toto is about to run a stiletto into the body of Marie, but Angelo receives the wound. Angelo is carried to his studio where he is nursed back to health by Marie. Later he marries her. Knowing that his wife's looks lack one thing, the humanity of the mother of sorrows, he goes in search of his ideal for his great painting. After five months of unsuccessful searching he returns to his home town where he meets, outside a café, his friend, Jim Townsend, who is made acquainted with his fruitless search. After giving vent to his sorrows he again starts on his journey for his ideal. Through the death of a relative Jim Townsend comes in for a fortune. Determined to help Angelo and Marie, he calls upon her and notes that she is sewing in expectancy of an heir. He buys a little cottage in the suburbs into which he moves her. He then tells her that he will search for Angelo and bring him back. Several months later Angelo comes to Jim's studio still without a model. Jim tells him that he has found his great Madonna and taking him to the new cottage bids him enter wherein he will find what he is seeking. As he opens the door he beholds Marie sitting in the sunlight with a tiny baby in her arms, radiant in the sanctity of motherhood. He is fascinated and reverently kisses her. He brings his easel and begins work on his masterpiece. A short while after they receive a letter from Jim Townsend saying that he is sending the deed for the cottage as a present to Angelo, the younger. Angelo places the deed in the baby's hands and with his arms around Marie looks proudly from his model wife to his finished masterpiece, "The Great Madonna."

Again, when he has a difference with the taxi chauffeur in the settlement of his fare. He is naturally a gentleman, but his ungovernable temper makes him almost brutal. His young wife is almost driven to despair when Ford takes exception to the attention shown her at an evening reception which they are giving at their home. He flies into such a passion his behavior drives their friends in horror from the house. One evening, his wife is cleaning a pair of gloves, and placing them on a pair of hand-forms, standing them in the window. The shade being down, the shadow of Mr. Ford can be seen wildly gesticulating, apparently striking his wife. A policeman passing the house sees his actions and when Mrs. Ford appears to fall upon the floor, sees the false hands in a supplicating attitude. He immediately summons other policemen and they try to break into the house. Mr. Ford, hearing the banging on the door, rushes downstairs and violently protests against their intrusion. They point to the window and he rushes upstairs to his wife's room, followed by the policeman. When they see the harmless forms on the windowsill, they all indulge in a hearty laugh at the expense of the over-zealous officer. This turn of affairs brings Mr. Ford to a full realization of his prevailing fault. He solemnly promises his wife to mend his ways.

Part 1: The greed of money asserts itself in the mind of James Montepier, when he sees an opportunity of securing a large contract for the steel interests if war is declared in Europe. A conference is to be held at The Hague in the interests of peace and Roy Brain, in love with Helen, Montepier's daughter, is appointed by the United States Government as a representative at the arbitration. He goes to The Hague to advocate the maintenance of peace, which is agreed upon, with the understanding that he return to America and secure the president's signature to the agreement. He attends a consultation of the president and his cabinet and is informed that they will present the document endorsing peace on the eve of Roy's departure, one month later. Part 2: The money kings, in behalf of the Steel Trust, determine to frustrate the government's plan. They engage the services of a very fascinating woman, Marion Mallard, as their secret agent to accomplish their end, and bribe Roy's valet to assist her. Montepier gives a reception, to which he invites all the foreign government diplomats. Roy attends. Marion is there, the cynosure of all eyes. At this affair, Roy is given the papers endorsing universal peace to be carried back by him the following day when he sails for The Hague. Marion is introduced to Roy and with her irresistible blandishments, she completely captivates him and induces him to take her home, where she has a very enticing little spread for two. While they are partaking of it, she manages to spill wine upon his coat sleeve and gets him to take off his dress coat, in the pocket of which is the coveted message. She removes the document from the pocket, replacing it with one carefully prepared to resemble the original. Part 3: Marion delivers the President's message to Montepier, for which she receives a good-sized check. Montepier places the document in his safe. Helen overhears her father and Marion talking about their clever work. Roy has already sailed for The Hague. Helen hurriedly plays the same game. She secures an envelope of the same kind as the one enclosing the message. She asks her father if she can get a necklace which she has deposited in his safe. He consents, and while he is engaged at the telephone, she extracts the stolen message and puts one which she has prepared to resemble it in its place. She then hastens to the wireless station and sends a message to Roy on board ship, stating he has the wrong document and to watch for her cousin, Ralph, in his hydro-aeroplane, as he will fly to him with the original message. Her cousin takes the message, starts his flying machine and flying across the water, delivers it on board the steamer to Roy, who jubilantly proceeds on his way. James Montepier and his steel colleagues meet to receive his report of the success of his scheme to defeat the government and carry out their own project. All smiles, he tells them how cleverly he and Marion Mallard succeeded. Taking Helen's duplicate from his pocket, he hands it to the chairman of the board, who opens it and finds nothing but a blank sheet of paper. Instantly there is an uproar of astonishment, which changes into chagrin and dejection when they realize they have been fooled.

Shortly after this prologue, Gladys and her husband, Jack Merwin, receive an invitation to spend part of their honeymoon at the home of Judge and Mrs. Brown; in honor of their visit, they are accorded a reception. Sadie Smith enters the ballroom wearing the exact duplicate of Gladys' costume, escorted by a young man in whom she appears to be more than interested. Jack thinks Sadie is his wife and becomes disturbed. He is on the point of following them when Gladys appears in the doorway alone. He turns to his partner and makes violent love to her, in order to arouse the jealousy of Gladys. When his wife sees him she becomes angry. The next morning Gladys and Jack are not on speaking terms; they bid good-bye to Judge and Mrs. Brown, and leave for their home, where Gladys falls into her mother's arms weeping and telling of Jack's behavior. Each consider the other at fault. It is not long before they are divorced from each other. The Browns, at whose house the quarrel began, have not heard of their divorce. Judge Brown invites Jack to spend a week-end with them, and Mrs. Brown sends an invitation to Gladys to be present on the same occasion. Both Jack and Gladys accept and attend but are entirely unaware of each other's presence. They are both shown at different times to the same suite, and later, when they are about to dress for the evening, Gladys finds on entering the ante-room, all of Jack's belongings. She throws them out and unpacks her own. When Jack comes into the room, he finds Gladys' wardrobe spread about and he gets rid of them and proceeds to make himself comfortable. Jack goes into the bedroom to shave. While he is doing this, Gladys comes in again and finds the male apparel, and, as before, disposes of it without ceremony. She then retires from the room. Jack enters and finding his own clothing gone, in a spirit of fun dresses himself in Gladys' clothing. Gladys returns to the sitting room, dressed in a frilled petticoat, short enough to display a pair of ankles, and her long hair is hanging in golden strands far below her waist. She does not see Jack but he sees her; she goes to her bedroom; he peeps through the door and is caught by Gladys. She is enraged, but as she beholds Jack, whom she now recognizes as her husband, dressed in her own clothing, she can't help but laugh at the ridiculousness of the situation. He thinks Gladys bewitching. There issues a lively explanation of the cause of their quarrel and divorce, and both of them decide that they will be re-married by Judge Brown, start life again and enjoy a second honeymoon.
