Story Summary:

In this number Joseph Harris plays the part of a close-fisted old man who learns to be charitable after dreaming that he is dead. In the spirit form he visits many poor people and awakens a changed man. The plot of this is very much like that of Dickens Christmas Carol and is quite familiar in most of the situations.
