Storyline

On one of the Jarr's quiet Sundays, Fritz, the shipping clerk, calls on Jarr and tells him that his sister, the sentimental fat lady, has fallen in love with Dinkston, the poet, adding that the lady has determined to die, for Dinkston evinces little affection for her. Jarr feels it is none of his business, but his wife induces him to do something. Jarr visits Fatima with Fritz and finds her lying on the folding bed which completely blockades the entrance.

After a chase, he takes refuge in a powerhouse and hides underneath a big dynamo. Hogan, ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

His finish is electrifying
21 December 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

It takes Mr. Jarr's magnetic friend a long time to get started in this edition of the Jarr mishaps, but his finish is electrifying. The last five minutes of the reel compensate for the want of comic incident in the rest of the farce. Harry Davenport still heads the cast. - The Moving Picture World, May 1, 1915
