As a practical joke on his birthday, Monty Milde, copy boy on a large daily newspaper, is told by star reporter Craven that he has been promoted to reporter. Having written a story about a Mr. Smith whose baby has been kidnaped and thus infuriated the man, Craven sends Monty to interview him. Monty encounters all sorts of difficulties at the hotel getting to Mr. Smith, who has detectives on guard, and finally he goes home discouraged; then, discovering a ransom note from the kidnaper left at Smith's room, he trails the kidnaper to a private gambling club. Posing as a waiter, Monty gains entrance to the private rooms of the owner, and there he finds the kidnaper. The den is raided, and Monty rushes off to the office with the baby and collects the reward from Mr. Smith.
