In Pine Ridge, Abner is finding out the troubles of swapping all his merchandise for animals. He tries to get a parrot to talk to him. The circus manager phones in for more animal feed. Besides Abner being short on supplies, the circus can’t come up with funds, so Abner is forced to foreclose on the mortgage he holds on the circus.
Abner gets confused over a figure of speech of Lum’s about shirts. Lum argues with Abner over the incident of his animals getting loose, until Dick Huttleston stops in the store. He has word that the circus is trying to sneak out of town, so Abner needs to get on the ball if he hopes to collect on his mortgage.
