Bob hiding behind a tree sees the negotiation and motions Ruth to take the diamond, which she does. A week later Pa Watt is threatened with a lawsuit by Ruth, for breach of promise. The ring being the prime exhibit, then he switches and wants Bob to marry Ruth. The boy, however, also switches and pretends a liking for Mabel, it takes a $25,000 check for Ruth to settle the tangle.
