An Essanay comic which is really funny. A man sitting on a bench places his money in his hat and puts the hat on the bench beside him. A tramp appropriates the hat and disappears. Then begins a wild search for it. He takes every hat he sees from the heads of the owners, tears them to bits and hurries on to the next victim. Each one who loses a hat joins in the chase. He is finally captured by a policeman whose hat he takes. Meanwhile the tramp has been taken by another policeman and the four meet. The original owner yanks his hat from the tramps's head, finds his money, and disappears, while the crowd who have lost their hats take it out on the tramp. The situations are unusually funny and the audience is kept in laughter. - The Moving Picture World, March 13, 1909
