As described in a review in a film magazine, having squandered a million dollars, with a few thousand left, and after being upbraided by his attorney, Reggie (Talmadge) bets that he can earn his own living and support himself for six months. He tries various jobs, unsuccessfully becoming a book agent, motorcycle cop, and trying some other jobs. He tries to give up but his attorney tells him that his remaining funds were lost in a bad investment. Seeing the political boss Clint Taggart (Girard) with a young chorus singer, Reggie snaps his photograph which is later published in a rival newspaper. To silence Reggie, Taggart makes him manager of one of his own newspapers. Taggert soon finds that he cannot hold Reggie down. Reggie becomes interested in Mary Ryan (Landis), Taggart's stenographer, and they discover with the aid of a dictograph that Taggart is mixed up in bootlegging. While Mary gets the police, Reggie fights Taggart's rough gang single-handedly, even following in a boat when they attempt a getaway. Taggart is finally arrested. Reggie wins Mary's affection and his attorney tells him that his investment has not lost his money but doubled it.
