Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: nytimes.com: «The plot to this two-reeler is typical Keystone insanity. A vamp (Billie Brockwell) seduces the cashier of a mill (Joseph Swickard) so she and her cronies can get their hands on the company's gold. She and the cashier plan to leave Hicksville with the loot, but the bags get switched, which they don't discover until they reach the crook's lair. So the gang heads back to Hicksville, and the cashier -- who realizes that he's been had -- follows in pursuit with the Keystone Kops. The real story to this picture is that chase, which has even more mayhem than Mack Sennett's shorts usually had. Before everything comes to a good end and the station agent's daughter (Anna Luther) ends up with the cashier's son (Earl Rodney), three bridges are blown up, there's a train wreck, and the mill burns down. For action, this comedy was exceptional» (Janiss Garza, All Movie Guide).
