Storyline

Bertie Bouner, a clerk, marries Sallie Morgan, from the country, and wishing to make a good impression on his wife's family, takes them for a day's outing. This so depletes his pocket-book, that he asks his father-in-law for a loan of $100.00. Later, through love of gambling, Bertie neglects his business, and is discharged, while his wife returns to her home in the country. But Bertie has reckoned without Sallie's father, who immediately goes to the city to have a settlement with Bertie. Bertie is thrashed by the irate father and then taken to the farm and put to "doing chores," much to the delight of Pete and Ike, Sallie's brothers. Three months later, Bertie has paid his debt to Mr. Morgan, and realizing that "life on the farm" is not so bad after all, he decides to stay. His coming to his senses effects a reconciliation with his wife. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
