I m a twelve o clock feller in a nine o clock town
As described in a film magazine, David Clary has big ideas on how to run a store, but John Clary, his crusty old dad, lets his business run downhill. David goes to the big city and while working as a clerk in a department store absorbs a few more pointers. He is also fleeced by a cabaret habitué (Young). Finally, his father sends for him to rejuvenate the "Emporium." By employing the town band and advertising, he fills the store with customers. The cabaret girl comes to town on the pretext of returning his watch and lures him to her hotel room. Here her fake husband (Ross) blackmails the young manager, but is exposed when he comes to collect $5000 from David by the corset model (Matthews), who swears that he is her husband. Selling out the store to a syndicate for a large sum saves David from bankruptcy and he takes his chief clerk and constant adviser Katherine Farrell (Novak) as his life partner.
