Storyline

Miss Jane Prue uses her new found woman's rights to make a leap year proposal of marriage to the Rev. Percival Jenks. The minister, who really loves Sue Grant, tries to dodge the militant old maid but in vain. He is timid and not self-possessed and failing to oppose the proposition at the crucial moment, Jane quickly spreads the news and loses no time in closing the deal. On the day assigned for the nuptials, Jane, not intending to run any risk, calls for the pastor at his lodgings. She pounds on his door but receives no response. In the meanwhile Jenks is racing to the depot. Old man Prue who has been sent on an errand for his daughter encounters the minister and cheerfully assists him to escape. The landlady and her three sons also assist in the exodus which is successfully accomplished. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It gave the audience a good deal of laughter
19 August 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A competently acted picture in a rural setting and deals with one of "the more deadly" sex, according to Kipling. Jane (Jennie Nelson) is in love with Jenks (William Orlamond) and has arranged to marry him willy- nilly, but he escapes, with the help of his friends and a ladder. The situation, as worked out, gives at moments an impression of spontaneity, but the offering has a slightly bitter taste, due to its clear intention of poking fun at Jane, There is much that is truly pleasing in it, and the photography is very clear. It gave the audience a good deal of laughter. R. Cummer Mason is the author, and it was produced by Joe Smiley. - The Moving Picture World, March 29, 1913
