Storyline

Rant and his daughter, Julia, two stranded thespians, pick up an old newspaper and read of a wonderful mummy, discovered by a European scientist in Egypt, which has retained its remarkable beauty for centuries. This gives Rant an idea. Julia is to represent the mummy and Rant, as the professor, will deliver a lecture. They secure the co-operation of a medicine faker, who has found business dull, and his tent is used as an auditorium. The scheme works splendidly until one of the boys falls in love with the mummy and the constable concludes that the professor is disturbing the peace. Dr. Quack, the faker, runs off with receipts and only the timely interference of the cowpunchers prevents Rant and his daughter from being arrested. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
