Storyline

Mutt and Jeff take a stroll, and this time they stroll in the path of a strolling German band. The clarinet, the piccolo, the cornet, the sliding trombone, the big bass horn and miscellaneous other brass noise-makers are seen in action. They are also heard by the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker, the housewives, the street arabs, etc., who fire a volley of pennies and nickels at the German players. Mutt soon tackles the sliding mysteries of an old sliding trombone and Jeff struggles in the mighty grasp of a dilapidated bass horn. Professor Schmitz, evidently another schemer, claims to teach music in all its ramifications in one lesson. Mutt and Jeff "fall" for this one lesson, and, being matriculated musicians, they make a bid for the people's small change. Jeff spies a blind man mechanically turning the crank of what perhaps once was an organ, and sees the "coin" go in the direction of the man who cannot see. If he does not see the money coming, certainly he cannot see it "... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
