Storyline

Two gentlemen of the road, Weary Willie and Slim Jim, while passing a furrier store, notice a stuffed bear. They decide it would be a good scheme to get a little change, so they borrow the bear, unbeknown to the owner and by one getting into the bear they will fool the public. They do so and the first victim to be frightened is an Italian organ grinder. The tramp and the bear get possession of the organ and play music, while the bear dances to the great amusement of the crowds that gather. A collection is taken and there is no end to the amusement they furnish by scaring different people around the small town. They meet their Waterloo when they start to divide up the money they have collected. The tramp in the bear skin removes his head when the crowd that is gathered jump through a fence. They receive a severe beating for the amusement they have had. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
