He is joined by a friend and together they look at the next office and rent it from Pearson, Lulu's employer. When they are gone, Lulu warns her boss, but he only laughs at her. It happens that Lulu's employer goes away for a day or two and leaves the office in her charge. This is her chance.

She, sees "the anarchists" laying out a number of wigs, disguises, etc. Max makes up in several characters for the benefit of Tyler, who is watching him and taking from his valise what she imagines to be a bomb.

Miss Neason plays parts like this very well indeed
4 October 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A comedy that the people appreciated and liked. It is good-natured, quite fresh and. for the most part, very amusing. Lulu, the stenographer (Miss Neason), is a great reader of dime novels and finds "Max Rosinsky, the Avenger," in real life. He hires the next office and is a "lightning-change" impersonator. This role is taken by Mr. Phillips, who has several good wigs. Lulu looks over the transom and then gets her sweetheart, the cub reporter (Mr. Morrison), very much excited. He brings the police. Miss Neason plays parts like this very well indeed and puts, with Mr. Phillips' help, a good deal of first rate fun into the picture. It is a feature comedy; it can be shown at churches or other private entertainments and will be popular. The photographs are fine. - The Moving Picture World, March 16, 1912
