Storyline

Cal and Billy, two young chaps, turn over their money to their friend Steppling for safe keeping, and he promises to allow them a certain amount each day. Next day the two boys meet some charming girls and, not having enough money to entertain them, hurry home and beg Steppling to let them have some on account. He refuses and goes to sleep while they rave. Seeing his clothes on the chair they hit on a scheme, hurry to a pawn shop and pawn the clothes for a couple of dollars. Steppling awakens, finds his clothes gone, and is horrified. Securing a suit much too small for him, he takes some old suits of clothes belonging to the boys and pawns them to get money. This, in his excitement, he drops on the sidewalk.

It made a big house laugh heartily and often
9 March 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A fresh comedy of situation full of unexpected twists and spontaneous humor and, like every other true comedy, a good deal of humanity too. It made a big house laugh heartily and often. Three young men, Steppling, Calvert and Mason, have come to spend a short vacation in town. The two younger leave their money with Steppling who is to dole it out every day and make it last. He won't "come across" at odd times and the two have met girls. They don't know that the money is in Steppling's coat lining and pawn his clothes while he is asleep. This is only one laughable situation. Howard Missimer, as a tramp, comes into possession of the suit. It is very good inched, a fine offering. We can't guess the reason for the title. - The Moving Picture World, November 16, 1912
