Storyline

The cowboys who lived at the ranch house found it necessary to discharge their cook. Then they promptly inserted an ad in the newspaper of the neighboring town for a woman cook. It so happened that Henry Hawkins, an Englishman, was passing through that country in an automobile, accompanied by five young women. The machine broke down, and while Hawkins and the chauffeur were trying to repair it, the girls wandered away in search of refreshments. They arrived at the ranch house. They were so terrified at the sight of the cowboys that they forgot to explain their position and all of them meekly went into the kitchen and began to prepare a meal for the cowpunchers. Hawkins arrived while they were thus engaged. He was horrified at finding them cooking for the wild and woolly cowpunchers, but when the foreman showed him a copy of the ad in the newspaper, he took it all as a joke.

The audience rewards the appearance with laughter and applause
13 February 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This comedy contains scenes that are typically western. Perhaps its principal feature is the mingling of typical western scenes, suggesting, at least, much wildness and a plentiful supply of wool, with the refinement which radiates from carefully nurtured women. The cowboys were clearly surprised when they discovered the five girls in their cabin. The suddenness with which they jump at conclusions is quite typical, and the girls, too startled by their unexpected surroundings to explain, go about their task at once. The climax, when the 250 pounds of black cook finally arrives, is quite the funniest thing in the picture. It is all good, however, and the audience rewards the appearance with laughter and applause. - The Moving Picture World, June 24, 1911
