|Plot||Small brothers are the bane of love affairs. The inimitable Cutey, reporter on a country paper, is courting Ethel Clark, the daughter of the editor. He has a lively time with her small brother. Tommy, who insists on queering him. The editor declares that unless Cutey brings in some live news he will be fired, and, furthermore, will not be allowed to call on Ethel. Cutey is at first despondent, but eventually decides that it is up to him to manufacture some live stuff. One night he robs a country bank, and next, day, when a reward is offered for the recovery of the money, he announces his intention of winning it. He goes out into the country and daubs his clothes with dirt. Then he returns and tells a tale of terrific conflict with a burly burglar in a cave, and how he forced the thief to give up the money. Cutey is given the reward. Tommy, who had seen the little performance in the fields, comes along and claims a share in the proceeds. He is given 25 cents on condition that he holds his tongue. Cutey is fearfully disgusted when Mr. Clark declares that the affair was a matter of luck, and tells him to do something better. This time Cutey decides on a bomb outrage. He manufactures a dummy bomb from a basket ball, and throws it into a grocery store. Then he rushes in, bravely seizes the flaming bomb and bears it off to a place of safety. Tommy, however, is watching him and follows him. He sees Cutey cut and burn his coat, fire a gun to simulate the supposed explosion of the bomb, and return limping to the store, where he is greeted as a hero. Mr. Clark greets Cutey kindly and takes him in to Ethel, who clasps her brave boy to her heart. Tommy comes along presently, and demands hush money. Cutey, believing that he is now quite safe, declines to give anything to the boy, so he rushes off to his father. He promises to expose Cutey's bluff for a consideration of fifty cents, which he gets, and then tells the whole story. Mr. Clark is at first furiously angry with Cutey, but at last decides that, anyway, the young man has an inventive turn of mind and so offers him another chance. Tommy, who thinks he has landed a nice little graft, beats it to the nearest soda-fountain.... search for Cutey Tries Reporting on IMDb|
