In this Columbia two-reeler, the villagers of a rural township are up in arms over an edict that declares they must be "eddicated." They're perfectly happy being illiterate and plan to take their anger out on the city teacher who's coming to town -- Charley Chase). Charley braves gunshots as he pulls into town, finds his bed being drenched by his disgruntled host (Chester Conklin), and suffers through a class where the median age of the students (who would rather be drinking hootch than learning the three R's) is about 35. But he proves useful when another city man presents the townsfolk a contract offering to buy their "Christmas trees" for 25 cents a piece. Charley, in disguise, sneaks into the proceedings, reads the contract, and realizes that the guy is really trying to buy the valuable land underneath the trees. He saves the day, but before he can take his leave, he's tackled by a lusty, moonshine-fueled young lady (Ruth Skinner).
