Young Lochinvar, accompanied by his trusty broadsword,passes the cousin, his rival, and, as the cousin is arrayed in his Sundayclothing, gets an inkling ther is something unusual happening at Ellen’s. Hefollows the cousin to the bride’s home, where the wedding is about to proceed,with the heart of the fair Ellen breaking.

But first Ellen and Young Lochinvar dance. They reach thedoor and Young Lochinvar seizes Ellen and carries her to his car, afterstealing the crank off the car of the cousin. Of course there is a wild chase,during which the entire wedding party get stuck in a hall of sand. Ellen andLochinvar, quicker that the rest, extricate themselves, and, taking thepreacher with them, the trio rides off, the preacher uniting the two lovers,and the others looking on in despair.
