The Templeton family is on a train during a terrible snowstorm. Their son, Johnny, is an incessant talker. Worn out by his prattling, they offer to give him a silver dollar if he can go ten minutes without interrupting. This gets hard when the boy witnesses a man freezing to death outside the train.
