Storyline

Some small boys are playing pirate and in emulation of the famous Kidd bury their treasure in the sands and make a map of the location with sights and bearings in approved piratical fashion. Then they bury the map as well, and this is discovered by fishermen, who exult in their good fortune. Procuring spades, they locate the treasure and proceed to dig until a huge mound of sand is raised. It is hot under the subtropical sun, but they keep at work until they raise the treasure chest and are in a position to return the compliment to the skeptical villagers who have been good-naturedly joking them on the fruitlessness of their labors. With great ceremony the chest is opened, but only some boyish treasures are discovered, and the youngsters' very evident enjoyment of the situation leads to their detection. There is a rush for the youthful offenders and after a short chase they are caught and given the drubbings they deserve. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
