Storyline

An old man's hat blows through a Pullman car window and is lost. He doesn't notice his loss and takes another's hat by mistake, thinking it is his own. The two men stop at the same hotel by coincidence and the man with the wrong hat gets into the wrong room, much to the mortification of an elderly lady, who immediately screams for help. In making his getaway the man drops his hat and through this clue the innocent owner is arrested. The lost hat is picked up by a tramp, who later robs the hotel and in getting away he, also, drops his hat. This results in the arrest of the other man. After many extremely exciting and amusing incidents the mystery is finally unraveled by the arrest of the tramp, who confesses the hotel robbery. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It is pretty well put on
22 November 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A slight but amusing farce set mostly in a country hotel. It deals chiefly with two drummers, guests of the house and a tramp who picked up, along the track, a new hat lost by one of the drummers. The other drummer's hat was just like it and the man whose hat fell out of the car window put it on. Both hats had the owners' initials. Drummer No. 1 came in drunk and left the hat he was wearing in the wrong room, a lady's. The tramp stole some cigars and left his hat near the office counter. So first one drummer and then the other is accused of wrong doing of which he knows nothing. It is pretty well put on and photographed. - The Moving Picture World, June 8, 1912
