For a pleasantly funny two-reel film, it was hard to beat the combination of excellent silent comedienne Louise Fazenda and director Jack White (whose brother, Jules White, would head the Columbia shorts department beginning in the 1930s). Fazenda also has a fine co-star in Cliff Bowes. This Educational picture stars Fazenda as the none-too-bright daughter of a wealthy fisherman. She goes to work as a maid in a home that is owned by a crook who is swindling a naïve count (Bowes) and stealing from the count's unsuspecting guests. The maid winds up in the middle of all the trouble and manages to save the count and retrieve the stolen jewels. The film ends, in classic two-reel fashion, with an extended, slapstick chase. With the crooks in hot pursuit, the maid and the count leap on a horse and they cover both land and sea before eluding the bad guys.
