They yank the weapon to the edge of the town for target practice. Bessie and her beau out picnicking decide to eat their lunch in back of the target. They are discovered and warned to flee. Weary sees the two decamp, leaving their food behind. Hastening to the spot he devours the lunch. A cannon ball comes through the target, knocking poor Weary flat. He flees in terror, but not fast enough to escape other projectiles. The artillery fire raises havoc with the various stores in the village. Meanwhile Weary climbs a telegraph pole in his effort to escape, but all in vain; a cannon ball comes sailing along and tumbles him off his perch. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
