Storyline

Bill, a stake-hand with a circus, is called upon to lead the parade when the drum-major is suddenly taken ill. He is equal to the task and as he struts down the street he fascinates Jennie, a country girl, who has come to town with her sweetheart, Bob, to see the show. Jennie insists upon following the parade to the show grounds, where Bill tells her he will meet her after the performance. Jennie returns to her disconsolate lover, who states that he will secure some lemonade for their lunch. In making the purchase, Bob sees Bill carrying water for the elephants. He hastens back for Jennie, that she may see the roustabout in his true vocation. Bill flees in terror when the couple approaches, but he cannot escape the vengeance of the rube, who demonstrates that the boob makes a fine target at the "three-throws-for-five" stand.
