Storyline

Out in the celery belt there is a stunted flag station whose leading citizens still wear gum arctics. In this lonesome kraal two highly respected money getters marched at the head of the women and school children during Perfect Developing and Printing dry movement day. As a result liquor was not to be obtained in town except at the drug store or in cellars of well conducted homes. For eleven months and three weeks of every year they battled to uplift the community, but every autumn they went skylarking in the Windy City. Every night of their week of hilarity they turned in with daylight tickling their noses and awoke entirely surrounded by towels. The fourth morning their bodies were taken to the Union Station. Two weeks later, at the Union revival services, when the Rev. Mr. Poindexter gave out, "Yield not to temptation," Milt and Henry sang their heads off. Moral: One who would put Satan on the mat must get inside information at his training quarters. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
