Things begin, to happen on the train, and don't stop until the breezy heroine is proposed to by the hand some hero while both of them are clinging by their fingers tips to a cornice several stories above the steel level. It is typical of the energetic young heroine that when the admiring young man goes to the girls' reform atory yes, that's where her predica ment hinds her to assure her that he will get her released, she ties him up with a strap and effects her own release then and there, climb ing the high stone wall and riding gaily away in her would-be rescuer's own car.
