A capital comedy idea has been developed to its fullest extent in this picture, that tells the story of the conventional Mr. and Mrs. Brown, their unconventional domestic, Steena and Lars Larson. Lars has advertised for a wife, stating that applicants should send photographs. In replying to the advertisement, Steena accidentally forwards a picture of her pretty mistress instead of her own. Lara is overjoyed at the prospect of winning such a fetching bride, and writes that he will call the following day. It happens that Steena is sent on an errand by her mistress and Lars mistakes Mrs. Brown for Ma correspondent. His wooing is more ardent than tactful, and trouble increases with the appearance of Mr. Brown, who is extremely jealous. Lars has a very bad quarter of an hour, during which he is pursued from room to room while the incensed husband empties the contents of a revolver in his wake. It remains for Steena to restore peace by explaining her error in mailing the photograph.
