Susanna has a habit of buying articles on credit. Her husband objects to this, and one day when a suit arrives at the house C.O.D., he refuses to pay the bill. Susanna is highly indignant and threatens to go to her mother in a distant city. Van Dusen, her husband, calls the bluff, and dares her to go, whereupon Susanna angrily packs her suit-case and demands the price of a railroad ticket. To test her nerve, Van Dusen gives her the money. To his surprise, Susanna accepts it and rushes off to the depot. While waiting in line at the ticket office, she happens to glance over a paper and discovers a startling bargain in suits. Counting the money her husband has given her for railroad fare, she forgets all about going home to mother, and rushes off to the sale. Meanwhile, Van Dusen, who has repented of the quarrel, thinks Susanna has gone and is utterly miserable. Rushing to a telegraph office, he writes a message promising to buy her the suit if she will return home immediately upon her arrival. He changes his mind, however, and stubbornly tears up the message. Meanwhile, at the sale, Susanna lays her purse down to try on a suit, and a thief steals it.

Judge Lynn sends his family, consisting of his wife, Trixy, his daughter, and "Buddy," the young son, to his country home at Lakeside. Judge Lynn makes it a practice to visit his family for the weekend. Jack Weston, a young gentleman of leisure, visits Lakeside and meets Trixy. Jack takes Trixy out sailing and arouses the ill-will of "Buddy" when he refuses to allow that young gentleman to accompany them. "Buddy" promises to get even. That same evening the Judge unexpectedly returns. The following morning, the Judge is reading in the library, Mrs. Lynn and "Buddy" present. The Judge comes across an article in the paper that interests him. It is to the effect that Slippery Sam, the notorious diamond thief, is supposed to be in the neighborhood of Lakeside, disguised as a woman. Trixy is passing through the room at the time dressed for yachting and carrying several papers, magazines and a substantial lunch. The Judge stops her and reads the article to the women folks and warns them to be careful of their jewelry. "Buddy" is particularly interested and goes to his father and is shown a photograph of the diamond thief. Trixy asks Buddy to carry the lunch. He agrees to do so feeling that his reward will be a sail on the lake. He is much disappointed to find his sister and her sweetheart believe in the old adage, "two is company, three is a crowd." He is very angry and gets into an old boat and sits down to devise ways and means to effect a revenge. He decides to go in for a swim. In the meantime the Judge is uncomfortably warm. In his walk through his grounds, the Judge sees his son in swimming. He goes and draws him into the boat and gives him a licking for going swimming on Sunday. "Buddy" goes ashore and walks toward the house. The Judge sits in the boat. It is very warm; the water is cool. There is a temptation. He yields and is soon swimming about. From a distance "Buddy" sees this and when his father swims out into the lake he decides to even up matters. He returns and steals the Judge's clothes. The Judge returns from his swim and misses his clothes, wraps some gunnysack around himself and wades ashore. He comes to a tent and stops to investigate. He enters, expecting to find some man's clothing. He finds nothing but ladies' wearing apparel. Knowing it is the only decent way he can get home he dons one of the dresses which belongs to an old maid who owns the tent. Meanwhile, "Buddy," seeing his father dressed up in woman's clothes, hurries home and gets the paper relative to Slippery Sam. This he takes with him and goes to meet Jack Weston and his sister. He shows the paper to Jack and tells that worthy he knows where Slippery Sam is. Jack, wishing to prove his prowess, accompanies "Buddy." They see the Judge flitting from tree to tree as though to hide. "Buddy" points him out as Slippery Sam. Jack has never seen the Judge, and knowing how the capture of a notorious thief will help him with his suit, summons up all his courage and arrests the Judge and forces him to accompany him to the lock-up. The Judge protests but all to no avail. In a short time the Judge is liberated. That night Jack, not knowing the trouble he has stirred up for himself, calls on the Judge and asks for the hand of Trixy. There is a mutual recognition and Jack beats an ignominious retreat notwithstanding the entreaties of Trixy. But Jack still hopes to win the fair hand of Trixy.

Freckles' Fight for His Bride

Having overcome many …
Having overcome many difficulties, Freckles is about to realize his heart's desire. Freckles and Vera are at the house of the Rev. I.M Goode. The ceremony is about to be concluded, when Vera's father arrives. The angry parent brings the ceremony to an abrupt conclusion and takes his weeping daughter to the home of his sister. While Vera is packing her trunk, Freckles peeps through the window and is inspired to a last bold stroke. Vera leaves the room. Freckles enters through the window. He empties the trunk and packs himself inside. An expressman arrives and the trunk with its human cargo, is dispatched to Vera's home. After the manner of expressmen, the trunk is ruthlessly banged about. After enduring all the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune," the trunk is finally deposited in Vera's room. In the meantime, the Rev Goode has fallen in love with Vera. He has followed the father and daughter to their home, and is pressing his suit. Freckles is in the trunk, head downward. His call reaches the ears of the expressman and he concludes that the father is a white slaver. The expressman summons the police. The trunk is opened and Freckles steps smiling forth. The father's anger again descends upon Freckles, who escapes from the room down a dumbwaiter. The father and police pursue him. Freckles traps and locks them all in the kitchen, returns to Vera and compels the Rev. Goode once more to begin the marriage ceremony.
