Storyline

Nettie is a very clever girl, but she is without funds, in a country hotel. She announces that she has lost a five-dollar bill with the corner torn off, and five rural admirers help her to search for it. Of course the bill is not found, but the smartest countryman conceives a plan. He tears the corner off a five-dollar bill, presents it to Nettie, and tells her he has found it. She is delighted, and invites him to nail for a walk at three. One after another the five carry out this idea, each concealing it from the others. The second has to pawn his watch, the third and fourth work at carrying baggage and sawing wood, and the last, a "tightwad," yields with great reluctance. At three o'clock all call at the hotel, dressed in their best, but Nettie has gone. A horrible suspicion comes to them. They dash down to the station in time to see the three-ten train depart, with Nettie aboard. But they receive a note, which reads: "Boys, aren't you glad it wasn't a ten dollar bill?"
