Storyline

Dusty and Weary, two knights of the road, awake from their haystack Pullman, and having an awful thirst, and no coin, are forced to take a drink from a horse trough. This unexpected blow causes Dusty to have an awful toothache, and the two, after administering gasoline and various other sedatives, go to the dentist's office. Being broke, the dentist kicks them out, and they seek food and consolation from a friendly garbage can. The dentist is now summoned on board Mr. Richfeller's private yacht, "The Yale," to fill an aching void in Mr. Richfeller's tooth, and while fuming with his rich patient, the steamer leaves port and the dentist is forced to make a sea voyage of several weeks. Meanwhile, with the aid of skeleton keys, the tramps enter the dentist's office. Weary quietly removes Dusty's aching tooth with an ice tong. Now, being unable to leave on account of the patients who mistake them for the real dentist, the tramps conceive the idea of making some money by remaining dentists....

A somewhat disgusting type
31 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Low comedy which contains a number of funny situations of a somewhat disgusting type. The tramps occupy the dentists' office and pull teeth with pincers, ice tongs, etc. After making a great deal of money they surrender the office to the real owners and go back to their old life. - The Moving Picture World, November 15, 1913
