The story about tow fools; one rich and one poor. Both of them played by Charlie Chaplin The richer fool is a man with a drinking problem and a neglected wife (Edna Purviance) who has stopped tolerating it. The poorer fool is his standard Tramp, hitching a joyride on a train and ending up at a golf course where he gets into predictably funny trouble. The Tramp shows up, running from the law, and is mistaken for the husband. Edna finds the new "husband" more to her liking than the real one. When true identities are revealed, a fight breaks out and the Tramp is ejected.
