While taking an airing one afternoon on the Rialto, Lord Roberts, a midget, notices Claire. He later discovers she lives in the same boarding house as himself. The little fellow is very much attracted by Claire and falls in love with her. She pays no attention to him, thinking he is too small to warrant her attention, and intimates that children should be seen and not heard. He feels very much hurt because she mistakes him for a child and she does not realize that he is a man, both in age and feelings, even if he is not full grown. She tries to patronize him as she does other youngsters, and he learns that she is very fond of children. He disguises himself as a small boy and he certainly makes a cunning one. Claire sees him crying on the steps of the house, picks him up lovingly in her arms, and carries him indoors. Claire is very fond of Harold, a young man boarding at the house and she is very often in his company. They are very affectionate to each other and it is very manifest that she has a very tender regard for him. This arouses the midget's jealousy. His efforts to outrival Harold, brings about many amusing complications. His serious efforts furnish much entertainment for Harold and Claire, and to keep it up, they carry out the joke as far as they can. The little nobleman comes to the conclusion that the joke is getting too funny and he accepts the inevitable, leaving Harold and Claire to the full enjoyment of their own happiness.
