Storyline

Old Mr. Morton generally had the gout, toothache or some other ailment and he always had a most cantankerous temper, making things miserable for his devoted wife and his pretty daughter, Louise. Young Jack Warner came one day to ask the consent of Mr. Morton to his daughter's marriage and was ordered out of the house by the tempestuous invalid. The old gentleman was just enjoying his victory when he was dumbfounded to see his Satanic Majesty before him. "Follow me," said the vision, and in spite of his gout, Mr. Morton had to follow. Through the forest and up over the rocks of the mountainside Satan went, followed by the rheumatic Mortons, limping and growling. Up they went until they reached the Fountain of Youth.

He joined into the children's games, stole jam from the pantry, etc. But soon Satan ordered him to proceed, and the old gentleman was horrified to find that they soon arrived at the asylum....
