Mrs. Newcomb, who is rather color-blind, buys her husband a very "loud" necktie, which creates much laughter in the office. He tries many times to get rid of it, but each time some good-natured person returns it to him. At last he tears the tie into bits, and bribes a corner loafer into having a fight with him outside of his home. Just as Mrs. Newcomb appears, the loafer disappears. She notices that her husband is unhurt, but that his "beautiful" necktie is torn to shreds. She is heartbroken and he professes great sorrow. But the grief of Mrs. Newcomb is not long lived, for the Janitor's daughter presents him with a duplicate of the "beautiful" necktie. Written by
