Storyline

Hattie, the village belle, has many admirers to whom she offers little encouragement. Rube, a country boy, arrives in town and secures a position in the grocery store, where his gallantry and salesmanship win Hattie's heart. Consumed with jealousy the boys determine to humble Rube. They invite the gullible youth to accompany them on a snipe hunt. When they reach a lonely spot Rube is given a sack to hold and is informed by the boys that they will go out and drive in the snipes. The boys, however, go home and Rube waits all night in vain. Next morning Hattie decides to invite Rube to a "picnic for two" and she prepares a fine lunch. As she approaches the village she discovers the plight of the grocery clerk. Hattie explains to Rube that he has been made the victim of a deep laid plot and they proceed to enjoy the lunch. When the boys return to have the laugh on Rube they find to their amazement that they have merely promoted his love affair. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
