Storyline

The dining-room needs papering. Jolliwell says he will do it himself. He "gets on the job," scraping the walls, covering himself with plaster from head to foot. His efforts to do the papering are worse. He upsets the paste, ruins the carpet and gets all mixed up in the paper, much to the disgust of his wife, who gives him a piece of her mind and tells him a few things we won't print. Finally, after calling in a paper hanger, Jolliwell gives it up as a bad job, seeking a little Scotch consolation with soda on the side. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
