Storyline

Weary Jake and "Shorty" Sam are lounging on a park bench. They observe that many people pause and take notice of a child in a baby buggy. An idea occurs to Jake: why not make a baby of "Shorty." "Shorty" is washed up and his face polished and the go-cart is sided up on the park walk. The scheme works. Many pennies are received from the passing crowd and oranges, apples, etc., are tucked away in the back of the seat. Then a Dutch baker stops to see «hat interests so many ladies and children. He thinks the face is hardly childlike, so he feels the chin. He remarks that baby needs a shave. The lady who owns the buggy is quickly upon the scene; also the owner of the clothesline which had been robbed. The police are informed. The hobos take to their heels.
