Storyline

Jed Perkins, an old ranchman, has four handsome daughters, of whom he is very proud, but whom he guards with jealous care. The opening scene shows a Western barn dance with the four daughters and their four admirers dancing before the camera to the tune of "The Arkansas Traveler," or some other old time jig tune, played on the squeaky violin of Pete Patterson. The scene closes with Jed and Widow Wiggs dancing the old Virginia Reel. This is the beginning of the ranchman's love affair. After the festivities Perkins gathers up his offspring, the handsome four daughters, and corrals them into the buckboard. Then cracking his whip he starts on the long ride home. Old Perkins has taken a sudden fancy to the Widow Wiggs and decides to propose marriage. A few days later he calls on the widow and finds her chopping wood.

They put just the right spirit and dash into it
4 April 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Here is offered a solution of the wedding problem which will perhaps help others in a similar dilemma. The widow won't marry him until he disposes of his four single daughters, and proposes kicking the lovers off the place to make them elope. The scheme works to perfection and he gets the widow, while the girls get the fellows they want. This is all worked out humorously and brings many a laugh before it finishes. This character of play is admirably produced by the Essanay actors. They put just the right spirit and dash into it to make it interesting and attractive. One pretty scene is the reproduction of a barn dance and the Virginia reel to the music of an old fiddler. - The Moving Picture World, April 16, 1910
