The stooges are tramps looking for handouts. Although the boys are down and out, Curly seems to get everything he wishes for. After some trouble with a farmer, the boys come across an abandoned car, one of Curly's wishes. The car actually belongs to some con men who have just gypped the widow Jenkins out of her land. The boys winds up at the Mrs. Jenkins' house just in time for a free meal. To repay Mrs. Jenkins the boys try to fix her well and instead unleash an oil geyser. Learning that Mrs. Jenkins has been swindled, the boys go to retrieve the deed before it can be recorded. They find the bad guys and after a wild fight recover the deed. The boys return the deed to Mrs. Jenkins and marry her daughters; April, May and June. Written by

The "oil" that gushes out of the water pump and into Moe's face was made of chocolate, whipped cream, asbestos chips, linseed oil and ketchup; it took hours to clean him up for the next scene. See more »
The padding under Moe's coat is clearly visible in the scene where the saw hits him in the stomach. See more »
A few familiar faces appear in this Three Stooges short subject where the boys make an interesting discovery of oil on the property of a widow with three marriageable daughters. Funny thing is these daughters certainly didn't look desperate enough to consider Howard, Howard and Fine as husband material.
One of the best visuals in a Three Stooges movie occurs here when after taking apart a pump and cleaning it out the boys strike oil. They make it look so easy, but as the gusher explodes out of the pump, Curly who had been sitting on it is carried up by the force of the gusher and is sitting on top of it. Don't worry, but that Stooge ingenuity gets him down.
Dorothy Comingore two years away from being Susan Alexander in Citizen Kane plays the widow with the marriageable daughters. Two of the swindlers who try to cheat Comingore of her farm are perennial western villain Dick Curtis and future B picture lead James Craig.
Oil wildcatters the world over wondered what they were doing wrong after seeing this.
