Summary

Chip, a newsboy, while sleeping in a newsboys' home, dreams that he is a real grown up moving picture actor. In the course of his dream he drives an auto to the home of Little Nell and induces her to elope with him. While Nell prepares for the elopement, Chip's rival, dressed as a villain, plants a bomb on the cylinders of Chip's auto. As Chip and Nell drive off in the auto the villain jumps on behind and Nell's father pursues with a horse and buggy. Two "cops" try to stop Chip in his flight, but they fail. The villain falls from behind the auto and is picked up by the "cops," who place him in the wagon with "Pa." The villain and "Pa" renew the chase. Meanwhile Chip and Nell arrive at the church and are escorted within by Cupid. The villain and "Pa" arrive at the church too late. Pa threatens to punish Chip but Cupid consoles him to a degree of forgiveness. He shakes hands with Chip and scorns the villain. As Chip, Nell and "Pa" drive through the gates of Chip's new home, a shower of confetti falls in and around the auto. Chip wakes up only to find that the supposed confetti is none other than feathers flying about his bed. Arousing himself more thoroughly he realizes that he is in the midst of a pillow fight. He soon forgets his dream and jumps into the fight. The matron of the home enters. The newsboys, with the exception of Chip, jump into their beds. The matron catches Chip in the act of throwing a pillow. She grasps Chip and spanks him as the scene fades out and the story ends.
