Storyline

Dissatisfied with farm life, Fatty decides to visit the city and find employment. His loquacious appeal so impresses the proprietor of a metropolitan drug store that Fatty secures the position of soda-fountain attendant. Then things begin to happen. Mary, a charming young patron of the establishment, is nearly drowned by the amateur clerk, who is summarily dismissed. A confidence man sells Fatty a piano tuning outfit and when a pedestrian is injured, the crowd mistakes the country boy for a doctor. When it is discovered that the supposed medicine case contains nothing but tools Fatty is dealt with severely and he takes refuge in a house, where he claims to be a paper banger. Cruel fate again asserts itself. It is Mary's home which Fatty has entered with such little ceremony and when he is driven away he is corralled by Jennie, who is giving an entertainment, and whose piano is out of tune. More things happen and Fatty hastens back to the farm, sadder but wiser. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
