Storyline

Mrs. Wad wants some money, but Wad reminds her that he gave her a dollar the week before, and goes to his office to fire the boy, because he finds a penholder in the waste paper basket. The Wad girls get the idea of having a rummage sale to get the money from their father, and win their mother's consent. The papers get hold of the story, and Wad rushes home to stop the sale. The bystanders prevent any action, and when he appeals to a policeman, the officer buys an old hat and tells Wad to chase himself. Wad goes to the station house, but gets thrown out. He then comes home to buy out his wife's business, which is offered for $5,000. The lesson lasts. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
