This is a laughable comedy and concerns the experience of a rounder who drew a cow in a lottery. His trials in taking the animal home are ludicrous in the extreme, but he finally arrives home and installs the bovine in his sleeping apartment, retiring to sleep off the effects of his potations. He awakens the next morning to discover that his prize has eaten the stuffing out of the mattress and has accumulated a mild jag from drinking wine. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
