As described in a film magazine, Buddy (Washburn) works in a drug store mixing soda waters for $12 a week. By calling his landlady "Dearie" and making love to her daughter, he is allowed certain liberties around his boarding house. He falls in love with a stenographer and in a moment of confidence proposes to her, and she accepts. He tells her that he makes $50 a week. A cut in the workforce at the drug store finds him without a job. He is also ejected from his room, and spends the night in the park. During the long hours of the night he evolves a scheme which the drug store puts into practice, and he soon has a position at his old firm paying $50 a week. On the day he accepts the job offer the wedding bells ring out.
