Brown, Jones, Smith and Black are camping. The wives of the first three find things rather dull. They decide to take their turns when the men come back. They do. The husbands think they will have a fine time with their wives away, but they get lonesome and try to scare the women back to town by posing as tramps and attacking the camp. It's a good scheme, but it works the wrong way, for the women chase them from the camp and run them up to their necks into the lake, where they reveal their identities. They are permitted to come out again and all start for home.
