Storyline

Ebenezer Sage after a year of widowerhood decides to marry again. When the lady of his choice arrives in Eben's home town she is received with acclamation by Eben's fellow townsmen, but she has barely established herself in her new home before she evinces signs of bohemianism. She is musical and she likes cider not wisely, but too well, so well indeed that she succumbs to the influence of it. Eben's straight-laced neighbors are somewhat scandalized by the lady's free and easy manners. Eben himself finds it hard to tolerate them. However, in the long run the wife is cured of her propensity for cider and peace reigns in Eben's home. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Country stories of this kind are apt to have a certain inoffensive coarseness
17 July 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A country village farcical story of two comical characters, Ebenezer Skate and his new wife. Eb's wife got drunk on cider. The elder was coming to call, so Eb wheeled his wife out to the barn in the wheelbarrow; she was very fat. A small boy saw the wife being wheeled out and spread the report that Eb had murdered her. He had just got rid of the elder when the sheriff came with the "boys." They knew what the matter was, of course. The picture is commendable in several ways. It is well designed and well acted. It also has the atmosphere of a certain kind of country story in a marked degree. Country stories of this kind are apt to have a certain inoffensive coarseness. - The Moving Picture World, January 13, 1912
