Plot Converted to the cause of woman's suffrage by her Aunt Lucretia, Edna Penfield, who has but recently married, joins a suffrage club and soon becomes its president. Her duties in that position take up so much of her time that she becomes neglectful of home duties and her husband protests. Edna says she will leave the house and live with Lucretia, where she will have her liberty. Penfield's sister, Beatrice, whom Edna has never seen, comes unexpectedly to visit him and is seen embracing him by Lucretia, who has come to fetch some forgotten papers. Denouncing Penfield as a base deceiver, Lucretia rushes away to tell Edna what she has seen. Penfield, quickly grasping the situation, determines to teach his wife a lesson, and to that end he suggests to his sister that she shall pose as his affinity. She agrees and is found in Penfield's arms when Edna reaches the house, which she at once leaves in indignation. That evening, while she is addressing a large audience at the theater, she observes her husband and Beatrice in a box and is almost overcome by her emotions. She manages to finish her speech and after the meeting accompanies the other suffragettes to a fashionable restaurant where she is showered with congratulations. Not being able to bear the thought of separation from her husband, she suddenly announces that she has finished with the Club and rushes to her home, where the true state of affairs is explained. Aunt Lucretia, who follows her, finds Penfield, much to her indignation, sitting with his arms around both Edna and Beatrice, who have become the best of friends. Her surprise is even greater when Edna abruptly dismisses her, blaming her as the cause of all her troubles.... search for A Husband's Trick on IMDb
