ROMANTIC MUSICAL-COMEDY. Near a railroad junction, Pepper and her sister, Penelope, work in their father's cafe. Botts Mcgee, a railroad detective, and Clicker Watson, a telegraph operator, are bitter rivals for Pepper's love; however, she falls in love with Jerry Hamilton, son of the railroad president masquerading as a brakeman; but Jordan, a junior executive, informs Mr. Hamilton, who wires his son to return home. Jerry does so, bringing his sweetheart. At the Hamilton mansion, Pepper finds that although his sister, Barbara, is sympathetic, Hamilton is bitterly opposed to the match; and fearful of jeopardizing the father's happiness, she agrees with Hamilton that she should disillusion the boy. Meanwhile, Pepper's father along with her former suitors arrive in time for a party; Pepper pretends drunkenness and breaks the engagement, but Mr. Whipple and Hamilton strike up a friendship, and Penelope, discovering the plot, announces that Pepper still loves Jerry.
