Tommy and Jimmy are very much in love with Dolly. Their appetites however, very much overbalance their affections. Joe, who is not over blessed with this world's wealth, but who is bountifully blessed with chivalry, is favored by Dolly. Tom and Jim decide to get her a valentine. They purchase a gingerbread horse, but before they reach Dolly's home their appetite gets the best of them and they greedily devour the token of their youthful affections. Joe bargains with the shopkeeper for a stick of candy, to be paid for by running errands after school. He hurries to Dolly's home and presents his valentine to her, just as Tommy and Jimmy have given her the remains of the gingerbread horse. She rejects their gift, accepts Joe's and, triumphantly, he walks away with the fair Dolly, leaving Tom and Jim disgruntled and rebuked for their greed and selfishness.
