Storyline

Splivins and Gelvis, two live wires who live by their wits, find themselves without any funds. By borrowing all of the office boy's small change they advertise for a partner with ten thousand dollars to finance a mail-order business. Mr. Simp reads the advertisement and, much against his wife's wishes, becomes a member of the firm. The partners immediately become prosperous with their newly found capital, and in order to give Mr. Simp a good run for his money, launch a mail-order scheme which gives promise of being a dismal failure. Much to everyone's surprise the scheme turns out to be a wonderful success. Thousands of letters arrive at the office of Splivins and Gelvis, and it takes the combined efforts of the firm, stenographer, the office boy and all their sweethearts to open the mail. When a farmer arrives at the offices and insists upon leading his old gray mare into the inner office, a climax is reached, which is a real surprise. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
