Storyline

Jim Gardener, a quick-tempered, well-to-do rancher, has invited two of his neighboring ranchers, both bachelors too, to dinner. His Chinese cook commits a blunder and is discharged. Jim tries to finish preparing dinner and thinks he has done well till all three sit down to eat it. Briefly, it is impossible to eat. All three determine they ought to be married, so they advertise for a wife. Three eastern girls, who are going west for their vacation, see the advertisement and plan to have fun through it. Ida Carstairs, the prettiest of the three, gets herself up as an old maid. The three ranchers meet the three girls. They decide that two of them will do but each one balks at Ida in her disguise. So they decide to draw straws, the shortest straw means Ida. Jim gets it and turns and runs away while Ida gives chase and catches him. The other two are twitting him about his luck when lo, Ida removes her disguise and Jim laughs last. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
