Storyline

Mrs. Strong, by reason of a good right arm, is absolute manager of her husband and his finances. While on a shopping expedition she collides with a passerby, spilling the contents of her purse. After they are restored to her, she misses her husband's pocketbook, and thinking the gentleman who bumped into her took it, she gives chase and succeeds in taking a pocketbook away from him. She relates the incident to her husband. He discovers his purse on the dresser. The restoration of the pocketbook to its rightful owner is very amusing. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

This pleased the audience
8 November 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The ability of the athletic wife (Gertrude Forbes) to put any opponent out with her half-Nelson gets her into trouble. A business man's courtesy makes her think that he has stolen her purse which she has left on her bureau at home. She takes his, which looks just like it, from him, and he has her arrested. This also pleased the audience. - The Moving Picture World, September 13, 1913
