Storyline

Old man Whey brings his two sons, Hank and Buck to the schoolmaster's cabin to arrange for their schooling. On leaving, accompanied by the Master, a riderless horse comes dashing down the road. After a hurried run around the bend they find Miss Williams lying unconscious by the roadside. The Master carries her to the village hotel and provides for her attention with the innkeeper. The next day the teacher being solicitous of her condition, calls and finds her much better, leaving some flowers and an invitation to visit the school. She does so in company with Stanchia her suitor. An admiration of more than passing notice is clearly apparent to the suitor to be mutual between the Master and Mrs. Williams. Hank and Buck are bent on deviltry instead of books and are seen on the school-roof pouring sulfur in the chimney and finally covering it up with a sack.

Coarse and crude attempts at fun
28 August 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A love story in the west centering around a schoolmaster. Of course, there is jealousy and the schoolmaster is badly beaten, but he succeeds in winning the girl, and after years see him a successful artist. Some interest will attach to the smoking out of the school by the youngsters who pour sulfur down the chimney and cover the top with a sack. This sort of deviltry was common enough some years ago, but, like many other coarse and crude attempts at fun, this has disappeared. As a bit of history, however, it is interesting, and represents what teachers were formerly subjected to in numerous instances. The real interest of the film will undoubtedly center around the pranks of these two boys. - The Moving Picture World, October 1, 1910
