Storyline

There is no doubt that domestic work palled upon Harry French. He hated the job of helping his young wife pack their belongings preparatory to moving from the Harlem flat. But he intended escaping petticoat thralldom for a time. In the apartment building there was a card game threatening and Harry determined to make one. So he feigned madness, alarmed his wife and made his escape. Joining the party, he won largely and was happy in his success. Mrs. French got wind of Harry's whereabouts and surprised him in the act of deception, When he returned laden with the spoil, he was greeted with a broomstick attack, deprived of his winnings, physically sat upon and informed that his better half "wore them."
