Storyline

John Dobbs, an aged farmer, comes to the village with his family, and while there makes the sale of a cow for a good sum. The farm wagon drives away filled with pleased country folk, who have been to the hamlet to do some shopping. The payment of the money is witnessed by two tramps, who follow Farmer Dobbs home. He is set upon and robbed and the tramps make their escape, running in view of little Margaret, a granddaughter of the old farmer. Another child discovers the plight of the robbed man, who is bound, and neighbors set him free. There is a search for the highwaymen and the irate farmers are aided by Margaret in a most ingenious manner to capture the tramps by reason of their leaving tell-tale evidence. The story is interpreted in a most charming manner. Baby Earley plays the role of the child detective in a most astute way, and is rewarded for her vigilance.
