Based on a popular song title of the era, Essanay's My Wife's Gone in the Country is not dissimilar to the like-vintage Lubin comedy Wifey Away, Hubby at Play. After shipping his wife off to a vacation in the country, a citified husband decides to take advantage of his temporary bachelorhood. Rendezvousing with his pals at a corner saloon, the husband accompanies them to a music hall. The "boys" flirt outrageously with a trio of pretty showgirls, rent an automobile for a joyride, and end up back at the husband's apartment. Unfortunately for our hero, his wife unexpectedly returns, having run short of money. In desperation, hubby hides his friends and the girls in the closet, thereby setting the stage for a typical slapstick finale, with the wife clubbing her errant spouse senseless with her bulging suitcase.
