- Summaries (2)
Towers Chandler saves a little out of his weekly pay from an architect's office and uses it to have a night on the town every few weeks. On one outing he meets a shop girl. When he boasts of his yachts and polo ponies she disdains his lack of a worthy purpose in life. The shop girl, though, is in reality the daughter of a tycoon. Her father decides to build a country house and employs the firm where Towers works. He brings the architectural plans to the tycoon's house and when the girl sees him meaningfully employed she realizes his does have a purpose in life.
Towers Chandler, employed in an architect's office, disagrees with his employer over the plans for a villa. Out of his small salary he has saved one dollar a week, and starts out to have one "gentleman's evening." He rescues a shop girl who has hurt her ankle, and takes her to dinner. He cannot resist the temptation to pose as a wealthy idler, while she tells him she can only like a man who has a serious purpose in life. The girl proves to be a millionaire's daughter who has started out looking for adventure. All finally ends happily when Chandler visits the millionaire's home, taking the villa plans along, and finds out the girl's identity, while she discovers that he is a worker and not an idler.
