Storyline

Poverty stricken Jimmie and his work-weary mother live in a tenement house. One morning little Jimmie, after washing his face and hands, pours the water out of the window, only to have it land on a passing policeman. The officer becomes indignant, hunts up the offender and declares he will have him fined. He does so, and they make it unbearable for the indigent mother and her little son, who haven't the money to meet the demand. Little Jimmie, however, gets an idea. He reads an ad in a daily paper placed by a widow of comfortable circumstances looking for a husband with a good sense of humor. The little man dresses up and applies for the right to win her heart. She regrets that she must turn down his offer but gives him the necessary money to pay the fine, which he pays just as the debt collector was in the act of seizing the shabby furniture.
