Storyline

Our friend is decidedly under the weather from gout and must resort to an invalid roller chair as a means of locomotion. Left alone, a thirst seizes him and leaving his chair he hies himself for a drink. He has hardly departed when Happy Jack enters and decides to take a ride. This proves to be a most exciting trip, bumping into objects and human beings, down a long flight of stairs to the very edge of the wharf facing the sea. Here he finds the owner hobbling close behind him, so he vamps. The invalid finds this point a most attractive one at which to sit and enjoy the cool breezes of the sea, and here he sits. Shortly after those into whom Happy Jack in his peregrinations has run, approach stealthily and thinking the man in the chair is Jack, pounce upon him and overboard he goes. With him it is now a case of kill or cure. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
