Mabel Paige is an overworked serving girl courted by a very young Oliver Hardy. When she is informed she has inherited her uncle's estate, suddenly everyone is kind to her and young men offer her bouquets and candy. When the next message informs her that the estate is $25, everyone but Hardy loses interest in her.

This is a primitive and standard comedy of the era from the Lubin Studio. Lubin came into the movies via optical equipment and while his films were always of the highest technical quality, his stories and acting were very conservative. The result was that surviving Lubin pictures are not particularly interesting in movie history, but he continued into the 1920s, one of the last two Trust companies standing, at the Betzwood Studio. Only Vitagraph outlasted him.

So this comedy is a competent but not very interesting one. Only the fact that Oliver Hardy had a major role in it makes it of interest.
