Storyline

Eddie's aunt cuts off his allowance and asks him to take care of her house while she is away. Eddie and Lee, the butler, put a sign on the house reading, "Dr. Lyon, Specialist in all diseases." Several patients appear and then an auto accident occurs in which Edith's ankle is injured. Eddie insists upon taking entire charge of her, to their mutual joy. But Eddie is worn out with the exertion of keeping the patients from the halls and from each other. Eddie's aunt arrives and Lee tells the patients the house is afire and sends them down a chute. Lee takes down the sign and enters the house just as Edith and her mother are talking with aunty. Eddie is introduced and all become friendly. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
