Dan Cary, a crafty old farmer, known as "Foxy Dan," decides that his beautiful daughter is too much of an expense on his hands and determines to marry her off. She likes a young rube in the village, and Cary sees to it that the bashful lover is provided with the quiet corner so necessary to the all-important declaration of love. With a wise wink he gives his consent to the engagement. But the engagement of beautiful Betty is by no means a wedding. So he tries the plan of roughening the course of true love. The rube falls for the scheme and asks Betty to elope with him immediately. But he never suspects that the convenient cabman, and the handy license and ring are all Dan Gary's idea of The Cheapest Way. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
