When the most prosperous farmer in Pike County proposes and is rejected he approves much less of her and decides to put her to work. Jim Daley, a city sweetheart, is on his way to propose to her. He hopes the parents will approve as his raising has made him utterly against elopement. He arrives at an inopportune time and is refused with more dispatch than courtesy. The old man asserts that his daughter will marry a farmer or no one. Things are despondent when a bright idea strikes Jim. He decides to lease the adjacent farm, disguise himself as a farmer and by competition bring not only Dad but Josh to his terms. After a month or two Josh and Dad offer to buy him out to get rid of him, such inroads has he made into their dairy business He brings them to his terms and then adds that the consent of the old man to the marriage of Myra will be thrown in.
