SYNOPSIS

Jimmie Wicherley, who is always late for everything, finds out that he will inherit his uncle's millions on the condition that, for a period of 3 months, he report to his uncle's lawyer promptly on time on a certain day each month.

Jimmie later has a fight with a truckdriver named Johnson and knocks him to the ground, where he remains, out cold. Saunders then bribes Johnson to disappear, and Jimmie is arrested for his "murder." A friend springs Jimmie from jail, and Jimmie captures Johnson and brings him before a judge. The case against Jimmie is dismissed, but he believes the fortune to be lost to him for not reporting to the lawyer while in jail.
