Storyline

Although Reggie Burrows is afflicted with toothache, his wife, Cora, presses him for money for a new dress and he gives her one hundred dollars. It is soon spent on a swell hat and the latest thing in gowns. Reggie stays at home, reading the paper, and sees an article about bombs sent out in hat boxes. Shortly after this the hat is delivered and placed on a chair by the butler. Reggie sees it and, thinking it a bomb, sends for the police. Officers Jack Hogan and Jimmy Boyle answer the call and come into the house. When the case is explained to them they suggest that the bomb be placed in a tub of water, which is done. Cora arrives home, and, finding the new hat in the wash tub. Goes into hysterics. The policemen beat it hastily and leave Reggie to make what explanations he can. The lady is pacified by another hundred and goes out again to buy an even more gorgeous creation., Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
