Storyline

Squire Higgs is ordered on a vacation by his doctor. He asks Squire Perkins to substitute for him. Perkins is off on a fishing trip, and Jabbs, the gardener, whom he has left in charge, opens the telegram. Jabbs decides to act and, putting on a suit of the squire's, sets out for the village. On the way he passes a lake and goes in swimming. An escaped convict, named Pokes, steals his clothes and runs away. Jabbs is forced to don the convict's clothes. Pokes discovers the telegram in the squire's clothes and decides to act as substitute squire. A young policeman elopes with a girl and comes to be married. Pokes takes a fancy to the girl and abducts her. Jabbs finds the policeman's spare uniform and puts it on. Marching toward the squire's house he comes on Pokes with the girl, overpowers him and forces him to put on the prison clothes again. Pokes escapes and climbs unobserved into an automobile, which drives in at the prison gates, making him a prisoner once more. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
