They meet a wagon on the way to the ranch to deliver two sacks of potatoes. They tie up the driver, empty his sacks, and two of the rascals get into the sacks, while the third drives the wagon to the ranch.

Got very good amusement from it
30 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

A farce burlesque offering that surely made laughter. Some in the audience "cussed" while others with more humor got very good amusement from it. Hugh Mosher, as First Potatoes, and Clyde Morris, as Second Potatoes, deserve special credit; we wouldn't have played their parts for a good sum. The piece was written by Ethel C. Unland and William Duncan produced it. Ye done good, Bill. - The Moving Picture World, November 15, 1913
