This is one of the two-reel comedy shorts, "The Berth Mark," in the series known as "Carrie of the Chorus." In this one, Carrie and her vaudeville troupe are stranded in a small town. Carrie "wins" the confidence of the town banker who pays their railroad fare to the next town, and goes with them. A society of "do-gooders" and "uplifters" try to break up the troupe, holding a convention in that town, and have them arrested, but Carrie and her show-girls break up the convention, and flirt with the police officers. The banker does not fare as well as his wife is one of the convention attendees.
