Storyline

Cupid has often started something he hasn't finished and possibly he hugely enjoys the disappointment of the victims of his folly. Miss Pauline Smith is forelady of the factory, and the girls, jealous of her, plan a practical joke, by placing one of her cards in a pair of overalls which they are getting ready for shipment. The overalls are later on purchased by a rube who is recognized as the village Beau Brummel. He, finding the card, becomes "chesty," and immediately writes the following letter to the fair unknown: "Dear Miss, I found your name and address in a pair of overalls I just bought. Suppose we round up this romance by us two getting married. I know I could love you. Just say the word. Jay Downs." This letter is delivered by the mail carrier to the girl, who is highly indignant and answers: "Dear Sir, I don't want a silly noodle who gets mashed on a girl he never saw. I don't know how my card got in those overalls. I want a fellow who can afford something better than a 47c.... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It is given a fresh zest
15 August 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Often the interest of a story increases in direct ratio with the unexpected features that develop. Here is an old story, so old that it has been hoary with age for lo, these many years. Yet by switching the ending it is given a fresh zest which makes its retelling funny instead of a matter of mourning as it might have been in less capable hands. The girl's note in the overalls, seemed all straight, but he didn't exactly expect the information that the girl wanted a man who could afford something beside 47-cent pants. It is an evidence that the girl was sensible and well worth winning. Moreover, it developed a new feature in story termini that should be useful to others who may at some time desire to purloin or repeat an ancient yarn. - The Moving Picture World, September 3, 1910
