Plot The opening scene shows a house wagon, and to the one side thereof is seen a donkey harnessed to a cart. The man is about to leave with the donkey when a girl leaves the wagon and takes an affectionate leave from the animal. The man halts his rig on the market for sale. A prospective purchaser is examining another animal when this particular outfit meets his notice. Making a thorough investigation he asks for a sample ride and is taken to his home in a jiffy, whereupon he pays the purchase price and the former owner departs. The new purchaser calls his family and there is great rejoicing upon the new acquisition. The wife is to have the first ride, and taking their seats in the cart they give the signal for the start, but the animal refuses to move. Every form of inducement is attempted, but the animal is obdurate and will not budge. A consultation of war is held and all conclude to go out into the woods to break the stubbornness of the beast. It is unhitched and led around and numerous attempts are made to mount the charger, but all are unsuccessful, as with ease the little donkey dismounts the rider. An officer accustomed to a spirited horse now makes the attempt, but also fails. Hitching Mr. Donkey back into the cart, they lead him along, and soon they are met by several men with fireworks. Two large pin wheels are purchased and attached one each to the wheels of the cart. Then the new owner and wife now take their seats in the cart, and when all is ready the fireworks are lighted and the cart starts off in haste. As the pace is greater than was figured on, the occupants of the vehicle soon lose their seats and are left by the roadside. The donkey runs on and directly reports to his former master, who Is just reciting to his daughter the details of his advantageous sale. The series closes with a view of the three conspirators.... search for Buying a Donkey on IMDb
