On this certain afternoon in the year 2014, Mrs. Jones, and her daughter, stock brokers, advertise for a first-class stenographer. Charles Van Doren, a defenseless young man, striving to make a livelihood in the big city, and at the same time retain his good name, calls on Jones' daughter, and is at once accepted as the new stenographer. He has not been there long, however, when Mrs. Jones takes advantage of his innocence, and makes improper advances to him. Howbeit, he gives her to understand at once that he is a good man and will not flirt. The office girl, from her lowly position in life, looks up to and idolizes the beautiful steno, but believes that he would never listen to such love as hers. However, in the sanctity of his heart, Charles is certain he loves the office girl, and only hopes that she will have the courage to propose to him. At the moment when both Jones and her daughter each believe herself the accepted suitor of Charles, the office girl is made courageous by desperation. She asks Charles if he will marry her. He drops his eyes, a rosy blush creeps to his cheek, and he allows his head to be drawn to the office girl's bosom. She leads the blushing groom to a nearby church where they are married.
