This old favorite has not been seen of late

Author: deickemeyer from Chicago

This old favorite has not been seen of late, but once again he appears, this time to help his old friend. Captain Bunce, out of a very tight place. Bunce has met some friends on shore and as a consequence finds himself in a strange town with a very small supply of money. He seeks the lodging house of Mrs. Mulligan and engages a room. She wants payment in advance, but Bunce can't do that. However, the widow is anxious to marry a second time and sees in poor Bunce an easy victim. Once he escapes, but she brings him back and then takes his hat and shoes so he can't go again. He finds means to acquaint his old friend Barnacle with the facts and the latter comes to his rescue. While apparently sympathizing with the widow he is in reality getting means of escape to Bunce. Then ostensibly he locks him in his room and goes down to bring the minister. Instead, he goes into the back yard where Bunce is letting himself down by a rope. They start for Barnacle's boat. The widow gives chase, but they manage to reach the boat and the picture closes, Bunce smoking his pipe in peace at his messmate's fireside. It might be proper to remark that Barnacle gives Bunce a sound berating for permitting himself to get caught in such a plight. It is a fair feature, well photographed and acceptable. - The Moving Picture World, February 3, 1912
