Storyline

Ralph is discouraged when he sees bills for the month. Eileen thinks Ralph miserly. Ralph reads about the South Sea Islanders' economical living and tells Eileen he is going to copy them. She consents to try the plan. The next day the two are located in a tent. Ralph goes fishing and falls into the water. He comes back to the tent, half-frozen, and finds Eileen trying to light the fire. He makes his wife wear clothing made of grass while he goes out to hunt. He shoots an arrow at a turkey, but is chased by the farmer. They have a fight and Ralph is forced to pay for the bird. Two tramps see Ralph's roll and take the money. Eileen invites them into the tent and urges them to clothe themselves with grass. Ralph comes home. The sheriff arrives and is shocked to see people in such attire. Eileen informs her husband that the women of the South Sea Islands were privileged to have as many husbands as they desired. The sheriff takes the tramps as prisoners.
