A wholesome, rip roaring comedy of life in the Ozarks. Jeb Larkin, "Jestise of the Peace", is a lazy, shiftless mountaineer. Enoch Taylor, a mountain boy, is determined to marry Judy, the Larkins' pretty daughter, because he needs somebody to cook and keep his cabin clean. But every time the folks get all set for "the splicin'," Jeb wanders away from the cabin and finds an isolated spot where he can sleep without being disturbed. In sheer desperation, Mirandy forces Jeb to do the hitchin' at the point of shotgun.
