Indian Chief - Cecil M. Hepworth (Cecil Milton Hepworth)
An Indian chief cautiously enters a chemical store in search of medicine. He sees two large bottles of "Seidlitz Powders" and immediately proceeds to mix himself a dose. In his ignorance he mixes the contents incorrectly with the result that he swells up to an alarming extent after he has taken a dose.
He floats about the store inflated with gas. At last he bursts and escapes in a cloud of smoke.
