A number of guests arrive at a hostelry, and preparatory to rest themselves after their long journey, they put their clothes out in the hall for the valet to press trousers and polish boots. The valet gathers up the heap and takes it into another room. He works long and hard and finally each piece looks like new: he deposits the outfit at each door of the room occupied by the guests and departs. In a short while the guests want to dress and each takes in the bundle at his door, but soon they discover that the valet mixed their belongings and each angrily examines the misfit and goes for the servant, who flees. A chase from room to room in the hotel takes place, and finally the valet gets hack to the room where the clothes are piled up. A bright thought strikes him: he sets fire to the heap and it burns merrily. The firemen arrive and add to the discomfiture of the guests by turning the hose on them.
