Storyline

The Senior Clerk of Brown Brother's office thinks himself irresistibly fascinating. He is very fixy and fussy, constantly prinking before the mirror. The rest of the clerks decide to play a trick on him, sending him a mash note from a fictitious young lady, making a date for the following Sunday. He gets wise to their game, and arranged with a young waitress at the restaurant where he eats to keep the date and put one over on the boys. She agrees. The next Sunday, the whole office force is waiting at the appointed place to see his discomfiture. They are surprised when they see the classy little waitress, stunningly dressed and bewitchingly pretty, appear upon the scene, take Dawson's arm and proudly saunter away with him. With gaping mouths and staring eyes, they ask each other, "Can you beat it?" Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
