Hadley engages a new office boy by the name of Bill. Ethel comes down that morning in a new skirt which she displays to Mabel across the hall. She decides that it is too long, and is wondering how she can get it shortened in time to keep a twelve o'clock luncheon engagement, when Bill comes out of the inner office bound for the tailor's with his boss's ink-stained trousers. Ethel gives him her skirt and tells him to hurry. Bill finds the tailor out and decides to make good by doing the repairing himself. Meanwhile, Hadley and Ethel, their nether persons clad in newspapers, are suffering many embarrassments, which finally lead to a visit from the police. But in the nick of time Bill returns with the missing garments, though what he has done to them, under any other circumstances, would have cost him his job. Written by
