In this comedy, two grocery clerks (Owen Evans and Rube Miller, who was also the director) are rivals for the grocer's pretty daughter (Lillian Hamilton. The grocer (Larry Bowes) also has another daughter (Florence Rosee), who is as homely as Lillian is pretty. Although Lillian favors Rube, he winds up betrothed to the ugly sister, while his rival is to wed Lillian. But at the last minute, Rube steals the dowry and takes off with Lillian in his Fierce Sparrow (a word play on Pierce Arrow -- a status car of the era). The jilted sister calls in the police and a chase ensues. The Sparrow and its passengers end up in a tree which is chopped down by a woodsman. The grocer gives Rube a choice -- take the homely daughter or go to jail. Rube prefers jail. The less-than-faithful Lillian marries his rival. The other sister, however, isn't left in the cold -- she winds up with a checker-playing septuagenarian (Harry Huckins) who is lovesick for her.
