Storyline

Two hobos, Shorty and Skinny, are very hungry, and finally Skinny gets an idea how to get a good meal without paying for it. Stealing a policeman's suit which is hanging on a line in a nearby yard, Skinny is dressed in it and they go to a restaurant, which Shorty enters, and seating himself, orders a large meal. After Shorty has finished, he begins acting crazily and the proprietor goes to the door and calls a policeman. Shorty is then arrested and led away by Skinny, who takes off the policeman's suit and puts it on Shorty. Skinny then returns to the restaurant, and, ordering a large meal, eats until he has reached the bursting point, when he starts to smash up the china with the intention of being arrested by Shorty. However, Shorty, having been well fed, has laid down on the steps outside and gone to sleep and a real policeman coming on the scene, goes in and arrests Skinny. Skinny is led away while Shorty looks after them in surprise. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
