Ever-smiling Johnny Hines plays a farm boy who supports himself and his mother (Margaret Seddon) by selling canned fruit preserves to tourists. Unfortunately, Hines is despised by his new stepfather (Edmund Breese), who kicks our hero off the farm. Stowing away on a Pullman car, Hines meets and falls in love with pretty heiress Marjorie Daw, who encourages the boy to try his luck in the Big City. Landing a job as a waiter, Hines figures out a method to sell his mother's preserves to the high-society crowd. The story ends up, as expected, at a fancy party held by heroine Daw, where after several hilarious social gaffes Hines scores a big hit with his home-made jams and jellies.
