Tommy gets stubborn and refuses to travel further until he gets something to eat. The tactics amuse an auto party passing along and a little girl of the party furnishes a banana for Tommy. Calamity and the girl become friends and upon receiving the card from the girl's father, Calamity promises to call at the home. The automobile party passes two tramps who recognize the millionaire and his daughter, whom they have contemplated kidnapping. They follow the auto and kidnap the child from her home, while the maid and her sweetheart are engrossed in their lovemaking. In the meantime Calamity finds the tramps' camp and enjoys their untouched meal. After being refreshed she journeys on and meets the young lover in search of the child. She recognizes him as an old friend. He tells his trouble and Calamity finds it is the little girl she has learned to love. The tramps hide the child in a deserted barn. Calamity rescues her and captures the tramps. The child wants Calamity to stay with her, but the beautiful home is too much for poor Calamity. She climbs out of the window to find out how poor Tommy is and spies the lovers in distress because they haven't the money to get married. She puts her arms around them, gives them her reward she receives for finding the child and tells them to be happy. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
