With this two-reel comedy, Stan Laurel began taking on some of the characteristics that later became famous when he teamed up with Oliver Hardy, including the slower pacing that was quite different from the hyperkinetic action favored by comics of the day. Stan plays a tramp, who, along with another tramp (Max Asher), tries to steal food from a farmhouse. Although Stan is caught, the farmer's daughter (Julie Leonard) feels sorry for him and feeds him anyhow. When the farm's landlord threatens to evict the family, Stan proves to be helpful -- the man holding the mortgage has stolen the farmer's money, but Stan steals it right back and pays him off. This is not enough, however, to win the farmer's daughter's heart -- she already has a sweetheart (Charles King). Featured in the film is a bit-part actor who would later gain fame in the Our Gang comedies -- Pete the Pup.
