A British officer, Lieutenant Stranger, tries to commandeer Goblin for Colonel Smith, who needs a good horse. Johnny prevents this by waving a sheet, which frightens the timid horse and causes him to throw the lieutenant into a puddle. Although he is embarrassed, Lieutenant Stranger has a good laugh about the incident and agrees not to commandeer the horse.
