Storyline

Sylus Jenks, an old widower, has a daughter Bess, and in the house also is pretty Nora, the cook. Like most children of 17 or 18, they have sweethearts, much to dad's worriment. Nora loves Tim Sullivan, the grocery boy, and Bess Jenks loves Jim Jones. Dadda don't like Jim any too well and will not have him in the house. One day Nora catches Jim kissing Bess and thinks it is Tim. She goes up in the air and for a few seconds there is "rough house." When the mistake is discovered Nora gets an idea, the first she has ever had. Tim is coaxed into a dress suit and a letter is planted where Dad will find it. The letter supposedly written by Jim, disclosed the fact that he and Bess will elope that evening. The old man goes on a hunt for Bess and failing to find her, grabs Tim thinking him to be Jim. Jim and Bess slip off and get married while dad is having his session with Tim. Then the bride and groom come back home to be forgiven and congratulate Nora on her engagement to Tim.
