Storyline

Tom and Nancy, both close to middle age, insert matrimonial advertisements, which are answered by Jack and Bess, a younger couple. Jack flees from Nancy's endearments, and Bess runs away from the elderly Tom. They meet and pursue their flight together until they outdistance the pursuers. Jack persuaded Bess to accept him in place of Tom and they look up a minister. As they are about to enter, Tom and Nancy come down the steps and the interrupter flight is resumed, but Tom explains that he is married to Nancy, and the advertisements are shown to have been of use after all.
