Ben Turpin, by day a special delivery boy, and by night a doting though somewhat hen-pecked husband, is sent to deliver a bouquet to the star of a one night stand opera troupe. Stage hands try to eject him, but deliver that bouquet he must. The mere panic aroused by his wrecking the stage sets was but an incident. Failing to reach the star, he presents the flowers to a pursuing stage hand fastened securely to a rock. At the end of a weary day he is dragged to the beach by his better half, who immediately becomes aggrieved at his innocent attempts to form new acquaintances among the gentler sex. Disguised as an English lord, his first successful venture is interrupted by the lord himself. Whereupon there is a chase which proves Ben's undoing. He is forced to leap for safety to the sheltering depth of a passing truck, which eventually dumps him in a spot of comparative safety 'neath the contents of the truck. Written by
