Storyline

Alkali Ike, a cowpuncher, is given his walking papers for neglect of duty. He has little trouble, however, in securing a position on Sophie Clutts' ranch. His trial is a hard and tedious one, the gladiatoress standing over him with a powerful six-shooter, and every time he drops his work, a bullet from the aforementioned piece of artillery hastily reminds him of his necessary toil. Sophie is an old hen, and Alkali Ike is not very much stuck on her. Sophie's niece visits her, a young, sweet girl of twenty, and Alkali makes haste to win the fair one. He is abruptly interrupted in his love making and Sophie puts the finishing touches on Dan Cupid's wings by making the son of the alkali dust marry her. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The better type of Western comedy
17 February 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A ranch comedy which keeps the observer on the verge of laughter throughout and breaks into genuine mirth occasionally. Sophie hires Alkali Ike to act as her foreman; the girl arrives and affairs become considerably complicated. This is the better type of Western comedy, with good character work in several parts. - The Moving Picture World, December 27, 1913
