Storyline

Believing that practice makes perfect, he improves himself by frequent impassioned addresses to imaginary sweethearts. But another rival enters the field. Little Adolph succumbs to the charmer and the microbe acts upon him just as in the case of Henry. The rivalry becomes furious and acrimonious, and the farmer friends become enemies for the time being. Mr. Smithers arrives just in time to prevent active hostilities.

Two impossible farm hands
9 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

A rural comedy that is really laughable, although it contains two impossible farm hands; "there ain't no such animals," who resort to all kinds of means to outdo each other to gain the affections of the buxom cook. One is a little fellow and his rival fastens him in a freight car, barrels him up in an apple barrel, etc., but he "bobs up serenely," and wins the girl. Excellent photography obtained, especially that of the trick with the barrel. It caused great laughter. - The Moving Picture World, February 21, 1914
