Plot

Jimmie and Toto are next door neighbors. Toto is motherless and lives with a grouchy father. Jimmie is blessed with a father and mother who look on him as the apple of their eyes. One morning Toto's father is particularly unkind to her. Jimmie learns of it and invites her to have breakfast with him. In the meantime the father returns and flies into a rage when he discovers Toto is the guest of his neighbors. Jimmie is equal to the occasion. He plans a meeting with Toto at midnight when they will be safe from prying eyes. Their attics are adjacent and when the hour has tolled we catch sight of Jimmie's head as the attic window is raised. Soon Toto is seen. He requests her to await his return with the necessary ropes for their descent to the street. It is a novel sight to see the young people descend for three stories by means of a rope, an athletic feat that will make many wonder. They gain the sidewalk and hurry off in search of a clergyman, for Jimmie is bent upon marrying Toto and so relieving her of the necessity of living with her crabbed father. They find the home of some high dignitaries of the church where Jimmie's manliness so pleases the good brothers that they serve refreshments to the children, after which the rector accompanies them to their homes. Here they find that Toto's father has been taken into custody by the police, and Jimmie's parents kindly make a place for her under their roof. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
