Storyline

Gabby Gus made the town regularly every month. He was a swell guy and thought he could cop most any Jane that he took a liking to. Clara Louise Willoughby, a farmer's daughter, with a pretty face and figure, took the salesman's eye. He looked the old gent up in Dunn and Bradstreet and discovered that the old boy was worth some coin. Then he set his traps for the daughter. Dad, however, sent her away to boarding school and when she returned she was the swellest peach in the orchard. They all fell for her. Gus hastened to her home, where he discovered she was some lemon when it came to the country stuff, that she was a real highfalutin society butterfly now, and her aspirations were higher than a poor hick drummer. She made him feel awfully small. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
