Storyline

Billy goes to dine with his sweetheart, and while there, asks her papa for her hand. Papa gives him this and also a pinch of snuff, with such comical results that the dinner is spoiled and Billy leaves the house in disgrace. The next day, however, Billy meets his sweetheart and her mother, and helps them through a difficult situation, with the result that all is forgotten. Billy, however, plans a revenge, and attending the house again at a dinner party, gets his revenge by presenting papa with a bunch of flowers over which has been sprinkled copiously the best grade of black pepper. The result can well be imagined. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
