Storyline

Jerry's sympathy is aroused by a blind man who is playing an accordion. He is about to donate to the unfortunate's tin cup when the musician winks an eye and Larry gets suspicious. He informs a policeman about the fakir and as the guardian of the law arrests the beggar Jerry runs off with the accordion. He serenades his sweetheart. The discord of Jerry's singing and the weird sounds of the instrument attract the father and he investigates. At the same time, Hank, the gardener, rushes to remonstrate with Jerry. In the meantime the father has armed himself with a large vase and just as he drops it from a third story window, directed at Jerry's head, Hank appears and he is the target and is knocked unconscious. Jerry tries to revive the stunned man with music from the accordion, but before he has administered much treatment the father has summoned the police and Jerry takes to his feet. His flight carries him to a secluded spot where there is in hiding a band of blackhanders. The "... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
