Gilliagin may have been a bad provider, but when it came to politeness to the ladies, there was hardly his equal. When Nancy Jinks was attacked by farmer Kinkin's cow, he saved her life and was rewarded with a dollar. An accident policy agent was in town. "A policy for one dollar," he said, "and you get five hundred in case of an accident." Gilliagin took the chance, but never was a man in harder luck. The good angels were with him and not one injury could he get, so Gilliagin went back to the agent and demanded back his dollar. Now Gilliagin's daughter, Pansy, was learning scientific biscuit making. They fell on Mrs. Gilliagin's foot and that irate lady, thinking them stones, threw them out the window upon Gilliagin's passing head. Fate is a perverse and fickle lady. He was all but maimed for life.

Released as a split reel along with the comedy Maniacs Three (1914).

    The henpecked Irishman buys an accident policy and tries to get hurt. Some of these efforts are laughable. But he does not succeed until he has surrendered the policy. This is a pleasing half reel. - The Moving Picture World, May 23, 1914
