The Comique Film Co.’s series of Arbuckle two-reelers starts off with Fatty shaking out a bag of laugh-making tricks. The cast fits the star, and not the least important member is Luke, the bull terrier.

Arbuckle juggling with the accessories of the country store where he is an important factor, also his way of handling feminine clothes worn in his visit to the girl’s boarding school, is done in such a serious, earnest way the comic effect is all the more forceful.

The butcher boy in a country store falls in love with the cashier (Josephine Stevens), the daughter of the proprietor (Arthur Earle), and when she is sent away to boarding school he goes to the school as her cousin. The first of the Arbuckle series sets a good mark to aim at.
