Alice Lorimer thought more of her lover's box of chocolates than of the diamond necklace with which old Lorimer had sought to make her forget George Thorne, "an ordinary clerk." In his fury, Lorimer charged Thorne with disorderly conduct. They were at the station house when Alice telephoned for the police. Two thugs were breaking down her door. At the news, George rushed out and leaped into Lorimer's motor car. A motorcycle policeman gave chase. Other policemen hastened to the house. But George was before them, battling with the crooks, whose frantic search had failed to reveal the jewels. And when it was all over, and Alice, pointing to the scattered chocolates, explained how she had hidden the diamonds, old Lorimer could not find it in his heart to keep these two young lovers apart.
