Alice Elgin acts as stenographer to an old deaf banker. To facilitate her work, she has taught her employer lip-reading, and has naturally become an adept at it herself. Ned, her employer's son, falls in love with her, to his father's entire satisfaction. But since the old gentleman has a keen sense of humor, he at first pretends to be greatly enraged.
