    Various locations of events.

    In New York, United States of America, we see several shots of a troupe of midgets boarding an ocean liner and sitting about on deck. They are returning to Europe after a tour of America The lady midgets pose for the male midgets (wearing 'Press' tickets in their hats) who take photographs and cine-film of them. One male midget has a huge cigar in his mouth being lit by a lady. A full-sized man seems to be counting the midgets and is missing two; they appear from under his coat.

    In Rome, Italy, we see several shots of a puppet / marionette show, watched by children. Good shots of the children in the audience as they watch and laugh at the two dancing puppets.
