Storyline

Bob, Wilbur, and Horace, a trio of embryo artists, are invited by their landlady to pay up or get out. To realize money the boys offer for sale a picture that really is a work of art and on which they realize only fifteen dollars, the amount of the board bill. Their good resolutions vanish, however, and the money is soon spent on three pretty girls whom they chance to meet. They are up against it now and decide to leave their boarding house via the ape. The landlady learns of their daring plan and, calling in the police, has them arrested. While being marched off by the officers they are seen by the girls whom they have recently treated to a good dinner. The girls prove to be good sports when they hear the boys' hard luck story and quickly pay the landlady the fifteen dollars necessary to make the boys solid once more.
