Storyline

Little Tommy, idol of the X-T outfit, was left in charge of the boys while papa and mama took a holiday. Cook-house Charlie, leader of the cowboys, took it upon himself to see that the child had a rollicking good time. He played the bucking broncho and Tommy the rider. There was plenty of candy and other good things to eat. But the day proved too strenuous for the little fellow. The hot sun gave him a sudden stroke, and he fainted. Great excitement prevailed at the outfit. The doctor was called from ten miles distant and pronounced the case extremely serious. He endeavored to give the child medicine, but Tommy absolutely refused to take it. He groped for something other than medicine, and still groping, fell off into unconsciousness.

Little curly-headed Tommy was plainly a prime favorite with the whole X Y outfit. He was left in their charge for a day and the boys gave him a good time, including a candy pull, which, with the heat, made him sick. No nurses could have been more attentive; they made the doctor ride like blazes, but nothing would make Tommy brace up save the rocking horse that he had long wanted. How Charlie, the cook who made the candy, in deep contrition did his level best to make things right, and how Nellie rode to the town for the rocking horse, make a story of human sentiment that is pleasing. The audience applauded it. - The Moving Picture World, October 28, 1911
