Storyline

Three bad boys come into possession of the famous Aladdin lamp and without realizing its marvelous power cast it away at the lake side as a valueless article, where it is found by poor penniless Tim, the gardener, who is about to commit suicide because Farmer Jenkins objects to him as a son-in-law. He picks up the lamp and examines it curiously. In trying to remove the sand and dirt he rubs it vigorously when to his astonishment a slave of the lamp suddenly appears coming from nowhere and informs Tim the slaves of the lamp are at his service, and by simply rubbing it his every wish will be granted, then he disappears as mysteriously as he came. This is a delightfully unusual comedy, full of trick work, which is wonderfully well done. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
