Slippery Slim, her husband, plans to surprise Sophie on her birthday by presenting her with a new piano, and to give a surprise party in honor of the event. Slim hands out invitations to a number of the villagers, but Sophie, suspicious of him, follows. The country schoolteacher meets her Waterloo when Sophie discovers her talking to her husband, and a battle ensues in which Sophie gains possession of the written invitation.

In trying to move the piano into the house, Slim accidentally slips and the heavy musical instrument falls on top of him. The next hour is a memorable one to Slim, and the funny complications that arise will bring forth screams of laughter from the onlookers. Poor Slim is finally rescued, but has to remain in bed throughout the party. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
