Investigating the coat of arms the baby had in a locket, Abner gets confused as Lum tells what the possibilities mean. Is the baby a little young to have joined a lodge? Is the baby actually a 21 year old midget? Is the baby royalty?
Grandpap enters to hear the details of the locket. He knows he saw the insignia somewhere, and finds it in a recent newspaper. Before he locates it, he reads a couple strange news items on local families, and their family doings. Marriages, lost parrots, , and elopements to Mexico.
Sure enough, Lum spots the insignia in the want ads. What new developments are in store?
