Storyline

Schmidt and Riley are neighbors, and engage in a game of cards for $1. Schmidt catches Murphy cheating and a fierce battle ensues, in which the wives take part. They throw furniture, kitchen utensils, etc., at each other, and finally Murphy snatches a package of dynamite from a workman who has been blasting rock and throws it at Schmidt. Schmidt catches it in his hands, preventing an explosion, and throws it back at Murphy, who immediately hurls it again at Schmidt. It explodes, tearing a big hole in the earth, and Schmidt is seen buried in the ground, with his feet sticking up. Conscience-stricken, Murphy rushes out and pulls Schmidt out of the hole and revives him, and there is a happy reconciliation all around. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
