A DOG'S LIFE and PAY DAY

A DOG'S LIFE

The Tramp roams the city’s slums and steals food from two poor men. Chased by a policeman, he stumbles across a dogfight and manages to save a puppy, which he decides to take with him. In the meantime, in a bar a young songstress is enjoying some success. The Tramp enters, hiding the puppy in his pants. He makes friends with the girl but the bar owner throws him out when the puppy starts barking. He also fires the girl, and the three wander here and there, hungry and homeless. Time passes and finally the Tramp finds a job. He turns to farming and lives happily ever after with the girl, whom he has married, and with the little dog, which has had puppies.

 

PAY DAY

The Tramp is a skillful mason and amazingly able in catching the bricks tossed to him by his fellow workers. During lunch break, thanks to a hoist and the inattention of the other workers, he manages to eat without worrying too much where the meal has come from. At the end of the day he is finally paid, but not enough, according to his calculations. He argues with the foreman but in the end is cheated even by his surly wife, who steals a banknote from him. After celebrating payday in a bar, he has just managed to go to sleep when the alarm goes off: it’s 5:30 and time again for work.
