|Plot||The laughing stock of a small country village is an old maid, Miss Anne Matthews. In desperation she decides that if she cannot get a real lover, she will hire one. In the middle of the night her house is entered by an amateur burglar, who has been driven to dishonesty through lack of employment. Miss Matthews captures him, holding him up at the point of her revolver. As a condition of freedom, he agrees to pose as her lover, for which she is to pay him five dollars a week and give him his board. All goes well, until the night of the church social, when John Henry Jones, one of Anne's former lovers, who has made his fortune in New York, tries to flirt with her. The "hired man" interferes and succeeds in making Mr. Jones very jealous, so much so, that the next day he calls upon Miss Matthews to propose marriage. The proposal takes her entirely by surprise and conscience-stricken, she tells him the truth about her hired lover. Jones agrees to forgive her, providing that the burglar be sent away. At this moment the burglar lover interrupts them and a quarrel between the two men seems inevitable. The burglar does not want to lose what he thinks is a soft job. At last he sees that nothing is left for him to do but resign, so he demands his pay. Jones, who is feeling full of joy at the thought of his coming marriage with Miss Anne, insists that he will settle all demands. He hands the burglar fifty dollars and hustles him away at top speed. Everything has turned out well after all. Jones and Miss Matthews are each happy at having secured a life partner, while the "hired man" is glad of the chance to follow again his own inclinations and get away with a whole skin.... search for Cupid's Hired Man on IMDb|
