Synopsis

In this two-act production, a dime-novel hero rises from rags to riches. Ragged Dick, an honest, upright lad who earns his meager living by shining shoes, is entrusted with a $2 bill by a rich banker. When he delivers the change to the banker's home, he attracts the interest of the banker's daughter, who stirs his ambition. In a dramatic scene, Dick has the opportunity to rescue a poor little match boy from a tenement fire, and when the match boy proves to be the heir to a fortune, the banker recognizes Dick's sterling qualities and starts him on the road to riches.
