The mine payroll has been delivered at Plain Poole's train depot, and station attendants Shemp and Andy must sit on it overnight. There've been a lot of robberies in the area, and the boys' imaginations and paranoia run wild with every strange noise and bump in the night. Mistaking a couple local hunters (and the Sheriff) as the crooks, Andy and Shemp lead them on a car chase to the mine office, and inadvertantly deliver the payroll to the real robbers.

The chase sequence, which takes up a few minutes of the short's running time, is stock footage from an earlier Andy Clyde comedy, OLD SAWBONES (1935).

One of the few Andy Clyde shorts I've seen, and it's on a par with a good Stooges short. Andy Clyde plays a high-strung, rickety old man and Shemp is full of ad-libbing and wise-cracks. Plus, there is a great chase scene at the end which was borrowed from an earlier Clyde short.

Well-worth tracking down!
