Storyline

Sam and May love each other, but Dad wants May to marry Jones, who has more money. To get her away from Sam and with Jones, he arranges for an outing at the shore or the mountains. May sends word to Sam, who gets there before them. Meantime, through an accidental encounter at the station, Reggie a friend of Sam's makes an exchange of suit cases with May. He rips his trousers and sends them out to be mended. The messenger runs into a painter and gets the pants all daubed up. Reggie opens May's suit case and dons one of her dresses, he starts out in the hope of finding proper clothing. He runs into Sam who is waiting for May. Sam recognizes the dress. He explains the situation to Reggie who promises to keep up the masquerade and draw Dad and Jones off the scent. The scheme works until Jones tries to kiss the supposed May. Reggie beats him up, but loses his hat and false hair. Jones blames Dad for all the row and gets him so angry that he is ready to accept Sam as a son-in-law. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
