Storyline

Hank and Lank have not experienced a good feed for several days, and, on the lookout for a meal or a handout, pass by the Summerford residence, just as Mr. and Mrs. Summerford, carrying suitcases and handbags, hurriedly lock the front door and leave. A sign, informing callers of their absence during the summer, is conspicuously placed in the window. After the couple have departed, Hank and Lank, who have been covertly watching them, come on the scene, scrutinize the sign, and with the happy thought that possibly the absent occupants may have left good food in the larder, try the front door, but find it locked. Not without hope they slip around the house and after trying several windows find one unlocked. Lank raises the sash and after helping Hank through, follows closely after. The window has admitted them to the kitchen and they lose no time in exploring about the larder and the ice-box. Their search is successful, as Hank has found a large, juicy steak, while Lank has returned from... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Once more the favorites appear, this time they haven't eaten as heartily as they might wish for a considerable time, consequently anything that indicates the presence of a meal is scrutinized with care. When they discover that the Summerford residence is closed they begin immediate investigations with a view to visiting the larder, where, perchance, the family have left something. Their efforts are rewarded with a steak and some desirable accompaniments. But they did not understand the operation of the stove and their attempts in this direction result in huge volumes of smoke which pour from the kitchen. The fire department is summoned and Hank and Lank get thoroughly washed once in their lives. After the deluge is over they ruefully gather up the remnants of their meal and depart, wetter, if not wiser. The humor in this picture cannot be described. It is in the action and the facial expression of the comedians and is of the character which precludes description. It must be seen to be understood and appreciated. - The Moving Picture World, October 29, 1910
