"Fatty" stands their joshing and kidding without complaint and generally with a smile, but notwithstanding his seeming good nature, he is looking for a chance to get lack at them. He and his friend "Pink" arrange a scheme by framing up a letter from the County Court, calling "Fatty" for jury duty and at the same time they get the telegraph operator to send him a telegram saying his sister will arrive from the east the next day.

12 May 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This film is not the best comedy of the week, but there is always plenty of humor in the rough though good-natured horseplay of the cowboys in it, and it faithfully reproduces a number of entertaining schemes. The way the butt of all their jokes, Fatty, succeeds in getting even is amusing. He dresses as a woman, having previously announced that his sister would arrive on a certain date. The supposed woman deceived each one of them and turns the trick very neatly. But they end up by ducking the joker in the watering trough nearby. The audience laughed and seemed to enjoy it. - The Moving Picture World, November 4, 1911
