Storyline

Paul is sitting with Priscilla on a bench in a secluded spot. Paul is reading to Priscilla, but she steals away to gather some flowers to surprise him with. Alice and Harry are viewing this from a distance and when Priscilla has gone Alice conceives the idea of taking her place. When Priscilla returns she finds Paul being fondled by Alice. Ten thousand furies. Another lovers' quarrel ensues. Paul, innocent, tries to explain but Priscilla will not listen. However, the truth of the situation is learned and Priscilla is determined to get even, by turning the laugh on the jokers. Both Paul and Priscilla leave notes in a conspicuous place purporting to their having cast themselves into the sea, leaving their wraps on the shore to apparently verify their act. They are now impressed by the maxim "He laughs best who laughs last." Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
