Because of an injury, "the Great Maranelli" (Johnny Hines) is forced to give up his job as a circus performer. He hits the road with his pal Sawdust Sam (Edmund Breese) and along the way they meet pretty Dorothy Langdon (Mildred Ryan). Her father, Henry Langdon (J. Barney Sherry), runs the power company, and he gives Maranelli a job. Langdon and George Trent, Dorothy's fiancé (Bradley Barker), are putting together an amusement park. Dorothy asks Maranelli for help selling the concessions. Trent is secretly trying to ruin the plans for the amusement park, and he kidnaps Dorothy and destroys the park's dynamo. Maranelli saves the day by hitching the park up to the city circuit and getting it up and running as scheduled. Needless to say, Trent finishes out of the money and Maranelli wins Dorothy.
