Arnold Smith breaks a small looking glass and the superstitious colored maid prophesies seven years of bad luck. On his way to business he narrowly escapes having his skull crushed by a falling flower pot. Arriving at the office he is thunder-struck to find that the firm has decided to dispense with his services. He then looses a wallet containing all his money. This misfortune so upsets him that be doesn't notice an open coal hole, into which he tumbles, sliding headlong into the cellar. The last straw is when he arrives home and learns that the stork has presented him with twins. In the darkest hour of despair his luck suddenly changes. The man who owns the flower pot brings a new hat to replace the ruined one, the coal company sends him live tons of coal as a balm to his wounded pride, his firm reinstates him in a higher position, a friend sends him a large bottle of the stuff that makes cheer, and his wealthy uncle presents him with a generous check for each baby.
