Storyline

Thomas Dibby, commuter and underpaid clerk, craves a watch which a tobacco company offers for 2,000 coupons. He needs only 100 more coupons to get it. Thomas finds an envelope which contains fifty $1,000 bills, joy runs riot in the Dibby home. But gloom comes next morning. The loser of the fortune plays a ruse. He advertises that the bills are counterfeit and that anybody who cashes them will be arrested. Dejected, Thomas returns the fortune to its owner, innocent of its real value. He is rewarded with a $5 bill. It happens that $5 worth of tobacco will just get the much needed 100 coupons. Thomas rushes to the cigar store and comes out with the watch. He is just as happy as if he had the $50,000. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
