Storyline

John Brown Smith and Marian elope suddenly because her Aunt Mary disapproves of Smith. The couple rush to the train to honeymoon at their friend Bob White's bungalow at Loon Lake, but a melange of forces prevent Smith from receiving a first kiss from his bride. A train wreck, a country hotel fire, the sudden appearance of Aunt Mary and The General, and a storm ruin their plans. Then, when Julie, a scheming maid compromises the innocent Smith, Marian decides to return home with her aunt and uncle. Smith then kidnaps his wife back to their honeymoon retreat, but an earthquake ensues. Julie finally confesses her guilt, and Smith succeeds in the long-awaited kiss. Written by Pamela Short
