Tho Plot of tho'burletta tells of the
nilshdps of two stranded American ac
tors. They are In Vera Cruc and com
pletely "broke." All they retained "was
their wits, on which they lived. A
scheme' to organize a circus entered
thtdr mind. Of course, they needed
money to carry out the Idea. They
managed to Interest the sheriff of the
town In the new venture, and obtained
from him VM. The circus had to close
up soon, the receipts having, been too
.meager. The failure prevented the pro
moters to return the ,loan, and the
sheriff ordered their arrest. Before the
schemers land In Jail many funny
scenes aro Introduced.
