John, a cowboy, looking for a job amazes a music hall manager with his roping ability on a Paris street. The two men seal their agreement at a local bar. The manager then takes his star to present him to the director of a music-hall. A bit tipsy, John rides his horse into the director's office. The horse who’s very much out of place shows his dissent by kicking in the wall of the office and the beautiful steed prances onto the stage and falls in the middle of a ballet. There’s great excitement for the young ladies who expel these intruders, and to teach them about civilization and good manners.
