Storyline

Flossie, the gay soubrette, visits the country for a summer's vacation and is introduced to Zeke, the clerk at the country store. Zeke is forthwith a victim of Cupid's darts, so dressed in his Sunday-go-to-meeting duds, looking like a dying calf in a thunder storm, he visits the fair charmer. He wants to propose, but doesn't know how, being so bashful, hence he purchases a book entitled, "How to Propose," and rehearses the love speeches. His rehearsal is misconstrued and he gets into trouble, and all for nothing, for in the meanwhile Flossie's city boy arrives and Zeke is left at the post in the race for her heart.
