This seems to be such a common plot situation in early films, both comedies and dramas: unsophisticated rural girl who comes to the city. (Also the gist of Mabel's other feature Mickey.) I guess it must have actually been a common situation in real life—?
In tv shows, too! Think Green Acres, Beverly Hillbillies. Even in cartoons they loved to have that little country mouse go visit his cousin in the city. I think it must have been fun and easy to write / act the stark contrast in atmosphere.

It seems, looking at that, maybe they were trying to cash in some on Mary's success. She has the general look—and the curls. :)
