Passions, He Had Three (1913)Comedy, Short · 5 June 1913
Henry is a big, fat country boy with three passions. He likes eggs, milk and girls. He steals the eggs from the nests, sucks their contents, and refills the shells with water. When the family sit down to breakfast and the shells are broken the crime is discovered and Farmer Jones places a big bear trap, covered with straw, in front of the nests, Henry sees this done, however, and says nothing. Henry weighs about 250 pounds. The Jones cow, Loretta, seems suddenly to have gone dry. Of course Henry does not tell them that he has been making secret visits to Loretta with a cup. Henry is in love with Jenny Brown. Si Black is also enamored of the fair Jenny. Si only weighs about 102 pounds, and when the rivals become engaged in a physical conflict it looks dark for Si until he practices a new kind of Ju-jitsu on the stomach of his foe. For the nonce, Henry accepts defeat, but turns the tables on Si when he lures him to the concealed bear trap and pushes him onto it. The jaws close upon poor Si's legs, and Henry calls every one to come and see the captured egg thief.
