Storyline

Bob Prichard, who has spent a very lively night at the club, approaches his home very tipsy. Upon arriving at the door he thinks it best to remove his shoes, which he does. Then, after drinking the water from the flower vase, and trying for some time to open the door with a cigar while he has the key in his mouth, he succeeds in getting the door open. He is about to enter the house when he thinks that he had better hide his bank roll, which he puts safely in one of the shoes. He decides to go to bed, and unconsciously picks up a flower pot instead of the shoes. He retires, leaving the shoes with the money on the front porch. About five minutes after Bob has gone upstairs, Weary Willie, a hobo, happens along, sees the shoes and no one in sight, puts them under his coat and goes away. He finds a quiet spot and sits down to put on the new shoes. They are a little tight but he gets them on and starts off again. But the money stuffed in the toe of one of the shoes makes it so uncomfortable... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
