Plot

On his way through the Art Museum, Mr. Blink, in company with his wealthy aunt, meets Cordelia Clover, an art aspirant, and the two are immediately attracted to each other. Finding she paints portraits, Blink gives her a commission to paint his. At the very first sitting, Cordelia's Bohemian friends pay her a visit and Blink is greatly abashed at the eccentricities of the newcomers. He accompanies the party to a nearby Bohemian café, where he is made to feel still more uncomfortable. Later, he proposes, but Cordelia tells him she could only marry a man whose soul was filled with art. Finding he was not naturally gifted with an artistic temperament, Blink makes arrangement with Marinelli, a street singer, to help him out. Beneath Cordelia's balcony he places the singer, out of sight, and bids him sing a love serenade. At its conclusion, Blink steps forth to receive the admiring plaudits of Cordelia. She is greatly delighted and proud of his "beautiful voice." Blink gets away with his Romeo-like demonstrations until Marinelli's wife becomes suspicious of her husband. Cordelia and she meet, and the girl recognizes on the other woman a scarf she had supposedly thrown to Mr. Blink. Cordelia is told by Mrs. Marinelli, "my husband gave it to me." Finding her husband serenading another woman, the singer's wife that evening rushes in to Cordelia, and leaving her baby, rushes out again to find her husband. Blink arrives at this awkward moment, and the indignant young lady tells him, "Here, take your child and go." He is utterly confounded, but fortunately Mrs. Marinelli arrives, dragging her husband, and Blink finally succeeds in explaining everything satisfactorily. Cordelia has had enough of art and Bohemianism, however, and is now willing to become Mrs. Blink. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
