Storyline

Little Abe wants a nickel, but papa not only denies him the coin, but spanks him for his presumption. Murphy, the janitor, likes Abe, but despises Cohen, the father. Abe plans a mix-up between the two, by painting a black eye on himself, saying Murphy did it. Cohen goes out to do Murphy, but is done instead, so Abe, instead of getting a nickel, gets a dollar to make it appear to his mother that father nearly annihilated the janitor.
