Walter Catlett is the unhappy losing suitor in this Mack Sennett-produced short, disrupting a wedding and overwise insinuating himself into the romantic life of his beloved (Joyce Compton) and her new husband (Edward Nugent). He follows them on their honeymoon in Mexico, and spends his time fomenting arguments between the newlyweds, as well as causing trouble for just about everyone he meets. Catlett is a little awkwardly cast in terms of his role here, being too old to play a romantic rival to the too-callow Nugent, but that's half the fun -- his antics are comical enough so that the plot is almost incidental, and only Walter Catlett could get so much comedic mileage out of a scene in which an unhappy suitor tries to do himself in (with a rope, no less).
