Storyline

Nellie Blair, the niece of a wealthy ranchman, and an orphan, comes in make her home with her uncle, and shortly after her arrival finds that the whole "Circle A" outfit, every manjack on the place, is in love with her. One by one they propose until Charley Martin, better known as "Cayuse" Charley, makes an appeal to Nellie's fancy and wins her consent to marriage. A short time later they are married and go to live in "Cayuse's" shack. Cayuse is the happiest man in the world, and his ever smiling face strikes the envy chord in the other boys' hearts. As a benedict, at least for the first few months, he proves ideal, spending his evenings at home, "doin'" the dishes or scrubbing the floors to make Nellie's work lighter, but finally his long spell of usefulness ends.

Never tails to make a favorable impression upon the audience
19 September 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A good comedy which may contain a hint for other unfortunate wives who suffer from neglect. Where no real mother-in-law is available a made up one will do, and if the cure is effectual what difference does it make about the fake? The funny part is where the supposed mother-in-law makes the husband perform all sorts of stunts in the kitchen. There is almost a dangerous clash when the duped husband learns the true state of affairs, but he isn't quite quick enough and can't do what he would like. The film ends with the assurance that they probably lived happy ever afterward as the result of the husband's agreement. The picture is lively and never tails to make a favorable impression upon the audience. - The Moving Picture World, October 29, 1910
