J. Jimerson Jones reacquaints himself with Judge Garth and Betsy on the train east to Chicago. After hitting a gold strike he is on his first vacation in forty years. Based on the Judge's recommendation he stays at the re-known Palmer House in Chicago. When a pair of con-artists learn of his money he becomes their target but his honesty keeps him out of trouble at first. At the same time a young cub reporter takes an interest in Betsy but only after he was rebuffed by Judge Garth for an interview. Although his actions lead him and Betsy astray, his honesty in the end forces the Judge to accept him. When Mr. Jones is blind to the truth, his friends including the hotel maid try to protect him with hilarious results. Written by Anonymous
