Romance blossoms when a game warden's daughter falls in love with another woman's rejected suitor.
Jack Daley, in an effort to forget his rejection by Miriam Stern, goes on a hunting trip to an abandoned cabin in the heart of the woods. Nance, the granddaughter of Ben Morgan, an old game warden, discovers that the abandoned cabin has a tenant. Nance, entering the cabin, makes herself at home and when Jack returns he finds her fast asleep in the bed. Unintentionally awakening her, she escapes before he can question her. Afterwards Nance makes frequent visits to the cabin and after rearranging the room, hides under the bed to discover if Jack will notice the difference. Jack is so absorbed in reading a letter from Miriam that he does not notice the difference in his room, an oversight which causes Nance to forcibly undo her work as soon as he goes out. Jack hears her throwing things about and returns. Nance reveals her jealousy of Miriam, whose picture she has seen Jack looking at, and rages at his lack of appreciation of her tidiness. First Jack reprimands her; this soothes her and she becomes repentant. Running home, Nance confides her troubles to her pet rabbit. Later Jack receives a telegram announcing Miriam's marriage, which so upsets him that when Nance arrives with her arms full of flowers, he brushes her aside and leaves her brokenhearted in the cabin. Becoming reckless as a result of the news he has received, Jack defies the signs prohibiting shooting and kills Nance's pet rabbit which had wandered away. Nance, hearing Jack's shot, finds him triumphing over his trophy. Crying over the loss of her pet, Nance refuses to be consoled, although Jack begs forgiveness. Thinking to replace the loss of her pet. Jack sends his dog together with a note stating if she needs him at any time to send the dog after him. As Nance is deciding if she will accept Jack's gift her grandfather is brought in by some hunter who had found the old man accidentally killed in the woods. The loss of her grandfather causes Nance to reconsider Jack's note and she sends the dog after him with the result that the lovers are reunited.
