Storyline

A poor old man and his little son and daughter are begging for some food of a merchant in the market place. Their appeal for help is harshly turned aside, and the old fellow is about to take up his weary way when a charitable lady seeing the occurrence interferes. She first upbraids the merchant vigorously for his crustiness and then buys food for the unfortunates. Thanks to her kindness, they eat all they want, after which the woman offers to take care of the children. The old man takes advantage of her kindness, and she takes the children in her care, while several merchants in the market place seeing his plight give him employment carrying goods on his back.
