Storyline

A nutty individual, known as Dishwash Dick, obtains a job by mail-order in the grub department of the "N.Y. Ranch." On the same train that he takes for the wilds, is Dick Mason, whose father owns the ranch, but who is unknown and has never been west. The cowboys who are hilarious and likewise impetuous over the arrival of the new knight of the kitchen, go to the train and lay violent hands on young Mason, as a candidate for the third degree, while the ranchman's daughter meets Dishwash Dick, and mistaking him for their guest, drives him home in her runabout, and he is installed in state as the honored visitor. In the interim, Dick Mason is whirled about so fast that he has no time to explain his real status and has one awful time, between the perils of the kitchen and the trials and tribulations that the mischievous cowboys put upon him.

It is the kind of offering that bores no one
16 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A ranch farce with a very old situation that seemed to please the audience: there was considerable laughter. It is snappily produced and the players (Myrtle Steadman and the company usually with William Duncan, who is missed from it) do their work well. It is the kind of offering that bores no one and amuses the many very well. Such are very serviceable offerings. - The Moving Picture World, November 1, 1913
