O'Brien unfortunately picks up a hot iron and Sullivan unconsciously places his hat on the gas stove. The hat catches fire, which compels Sullivan to rush from the house, leaving O'Brien and the widow alone. O'Brien takes advantage of his opportunity and he and the widow becomes engaged.

We have seen it done better than in this picture

In this we find an amusing idea which has been the making of several farces before this; but which has in this case a fresh twist. It depends for its fun on having, for some reason or other, the neighbors suppose that a death has occurred and showing them assembling for the funeral on the one hand and on the other showing the person very much alive, buying vegetables or doing some ordinary thing which becomes most intensely funny. We have seen it done better than in this picture. Here it is very theatrical. Yet it always amuses and this picture will furnish a good deal of amusement. The photography is good. - The Moving Picture World, July 6, 1912
