The rivalry between two college boys for the love a woman ends when the poorer of the two murders the other, making it look like an accident, to gain his wife and money. To top off his victory he decides to steal the tuxedo for the wedding the victim was wearing when buried, because he is convinced if he were not too poor to afford a tuxedo in college, he could have been her first choice in marriage. She agrees to the wedding, but on the blessed day, he dies from embalming fluid poisoning contracted from the suit.
