This notice they lose no time in showing to their wives. It is a good excuse to attend the regular weekly card game at the club. While the club is in session, it is suddenly interrupted by the police. During the raid, Marks and Johnson make their escape. They are closely pursued by two cops. They finally make their getaway on a freight train. In the morning when the train stops they find they are in a town that is under martial law. They think it is a good idea to deceive their wives and have a good time and a few days sport. They borrow a couple of soldiers' suits, have their pictures taken which they send back to their wives, saying that they have been drafted in the army. The wives, hearing of the hardships of the soldiers, decide to visit their husbands with baskets of food. They arrive in town and go from camp to camp. The soldiers do not know their husbands. A friend of Marks and Johnson meets the wives and puts them on the right track. He learns of the deception and fixes things up. Marks and Johnson meet their wives and get away with the joke, and return to their wives love and confidence. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
