This two-reel comedy starring Jimmy Aubrey was shot on location at a Ventura farm, 60 miles north of Vitagraph's studio in Hollywood. Oliver Hardy, who plays opposite Aubrey in many of his Vitagraph films, is the villain here -- known as the Walrus, he is courting a widow (Rosa Gore) in order to steal her land. When he mistreats her cats, however, she pulls out her shotgun and dispatches him. Two of the Walrus' associates (Jack Lloyd and George Fox) come out from the city to kidnap the widow's pretty daughter (Leila McCarthy). Jimmy, who was the one responsible for giving the two their ride out to the country, learns of their scheme and beats them to the train depot in order to rescue the girl. After returning the girl to her mother, Jimmy gets a job helping out around the farm. In spite of his complete ineptitude, he manages to win the girl's love.
