Mike Dugan, a sturdy bricklayer, and a good union man, loves Flora, but owing to the existence of a rival in Hughie, the barber, she tries to divide her attentions equally. Kate is also in love with Hughie, which causes much jealousy and bickering. Finally Mike challenges Hughie to a duel out in Winter's Woods. Flora and Kate, learning of this secretly determine to be on hand to protect Hughie from harm.

Kate and Flora conceal themselves behind a nearby rock, catching the two men circling like a couple of roosters. Mike hurls a brick, Hughie dodges and it hits Flora. She promptly accuses Kate of having struck her and the two women are soon putting up a scrap worth watching. They get mixed up with Hughie and Mike, and a mis-directed blow from Kate's rolling pin strikes Hughie on the head just as Flora's hatpin reaches another vital spot ...
