Storyline

Left behind by his brothers on their fishing trip, Buddy is disconsolate until he sees Lilly, a stylish young lady from the city, who is visiting Mrs. Boyd, their next-door neighbor. He awkwardly makes her acquaintance, and it proves to be a case of love at first sight on his part. She is older than he and although secretly amused, is gracious to Buddy and he acquires such a swelled head that he passes haughtily by his old friends, Grace and Elsa Forster. Buddy invites Lilly to the Strawberry Festival and she consents to go with him. She meets his older brother, Arthur, they are mutually attracted and Buddy is made to feel that he is a "Third Party."

Many good bits of comic character-drawing
20 December 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Buddy, about fifteen, has a girl, but another maid comes to town and Buddy would rather take her to the church festival. Big brother sees to it that he comes to grief, howbeit in no very convincing way, but the pain is only temporary, for Mother sees to it that he has a good time after all. There are many good bits of comic character-drawing in it and it will amuse pretty well. - The Moving Picture World, August 8, 1914
