In his will, Mr. Baird leaves his son Arnold (Franklyn Farnum ) just one seven-passenger auto and a hundred dollars to keep it filled up and in good repair. When James Bennett (Mark Fenton) hears of this, he insists that Baird do something to make his fortune before he can marry his daughter Ruth (Agnes Vernon). Bennett begins by using the car to start a jitney-bus line. This is not terribly impressive to Bennett -- who owns a trolley company -- and he decides he would rather see Ruth married to his controller, William Mott-Smith (H.J. Bennett).
