Storyline

Jane is a beautiful country lass and is courted by three young men. Jane, while hanging clothes to dry, is seen by Willie, who comes and makes love to her. Jake, on the other side of the street, sees them and thrusts a pitchfork through the fence, hitting Jane. She, thinking 'tis Willie, becomes angry and leaves him, going over to John who consoles her. Willie sees there is someone on the other side of the street and runs around to start a fight. Jake sees John and Jane and informs Willie, also putting him up to getting revenge, giving him a mallet to hit John with. Willie received the worth of it, and for spite, goes back to Jake and hits him. Willie then hides in a hay pile and is seen by Jake, who goes over and thrusts a pitchfork into Willie's trousers. Willie runs off, but is seen by John and Jane, who grab hold of the fork and are dragged across lots. Finally Jake interferes, so Jane then chases Willie and succeeds in pulling the fork from him, but by so doing falls in the lake.... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Low comedy
18 February 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A rube character story, with Ernest Shields and company appearing. Jane is a hired girl and her lovers mix it with pitchforks and croquet mallets. The photography is good and the situations amusing from the standpoint of low comedy. - The Moving Picture World, September 26, 1914
