Storyline

The story opens at a meeting of the Welcome Idea Husband's Club, in which the women jangle and Jackson's wife learns that she is abused. Coincident with this, Jackson is enjoying himself with the boys, and the drinks come fast and furious. He leaves the club and in an inebriated condition, reels home. At the sight of him the wife softens. He tells her he is ill, and she, in her ignorance, believes him. A physician is summoned, who takes in the situation in a glance, but tells the wife that Jackson needs exercise in the open. He advises golf, and Jackson is forced to acquiesce. The next day the ponderous husband engages the services of some friends, and repairs to the golf course, attired in regulation golfing costume. The party has also taken the precaution to bring along a wheel chair. Jackson makes ineffectual swipes at the ball, misses, and perspires freely. He is a failure as a golfer, and decides to play the game by proxy. Wheeled about the course, his assistant lands on the ball... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
