Storyline

Cheeky and persistent, Butt-in, the Book Agent, makes the acquaintance of Jack Sportington and his college chums. Jack is in love with Rose Woods, but her mother does not approve of him. Jack and his friends arrange a little party and as he is broke, writes his wealthy uncle, who is a spiritualist, for money, telling him it is to defray the expense of a séance. Uncle is delighted to learn his nephew has become a spiritualist and sends the money, later deciding to come himself and witness the séance. The boys are having a fine time dancing and singing, when uncle rings the bell. They desperately beg Butt-in to help them out and he agrees to get busy on a séance in two minutes. With the aid of some curtains and curtain poles he rigs up a presentable "spook" booth and after the others hide, Uncle is admitted. He is soon enjoying the "spirit" manifestations immensely and just as everything is running smoothly, Mrs. Woods enters and exposes the whole show. All make a getaway except Butt-in...
