Storyline

Jack Wilson has saved and deposited two thousand dollars in the Northern bank, in his wife's name. The bank is reported to be shaky. The editor of Jack's paper assigns him to look into the matter for the next morning's edition. Jack gets into the director's room and hides. He overhears that they will close the bank at 3 o'clock that very day. Jack's presence is discovered. They try to detain him until after 8 o'clock. Jack, breaking away, makes a bee-line for the newspaper office with his story. He telephones his wife to go to the bank and draw her money. She gets there just in time to draw it. As she comes from the bank Jack's report is being shouted by the newsboys, announcing the failure of the Northern bank. They purchase a new home with their savings.
