On the way to the train Smithers stops at the butcher shop and asks Schultz, the proprietor, to take a little meat up to the dog every day. The Smithers arrive at the country place and learn that the old folks have gone to the city to see them. They start back. Meanwhile, the girl friend comes to the Smithers' house to feed the dog, and Schultz, the butcher, does likewise.

A skilfully made tangle
19 November 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A fair farce comedy situation is well handled in this picture which a large audience seemed to find very amusing. The reward was $50, offered for the arrest of a mysterious couple who were entering houses, temporarily vacant, to rob. A young married couple leave their apartment to pay a visit to their parents in the country. The old folks, that same morning, come to the city to visit them. Also the young wife has asked a friend to look after and feed her dog, and, without knowing this, the young husband has asked a friend of his to do the same. Together, they all manage to get the situation into a skilfully made tangle. The camera work is very fair. - The Moving Picture World, June 1, 1912
