Never becomes extremely funny
An eccentric comedy number with Ernest Shield playing the part ot a grocer in a small town. He defeats his rival in a race for the post-office, but regrets this after the parcel post comes in. The photography is good and while this never becomes extremely funny, it contains a good deal of amusement. - The Moving Picture World, January 2, 1915
