Elizabeth finds an old cane in the attic of her grandmother's home, and soon realizes that it is alive. She calls him Carruthers and takes him home in hopes that he will one day beat her father about the head. Instead, Carruthers is lazy, and sleeps most of the time, or steals food. Elizabeth is constantly in trouble for him. However, Carruthers saves the whole family from a burglar in the end.
