Storyline

After spending two years in a boarding school, Emily Sprouts returns to her country home and discovers that her family lacks polished manners. The impending visit of her city beau, Edward Easton, is perhaps the primary cause of her fault finding. In due time Emily meets Easton and fetches him to the house. In the meantime the Sprouts family have donned their best Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes and are assembled in the parlor when the honored guest arrives. He is introduced to the family, but the exaggerated politeness with which he is met by the family amazes him to a degree of speechlessness. In the dining-room the fun continues until the limit is reached, compelling Easton to depart. Easton is apprised of the real situation, returns to the house and is welcomed in the good old-fashioned way. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
