Storyline

Ethel's sweetheart makes her a present of a large bottle of perfume. Bill and Izzy hit upon the brilliant scheme of filling empty bottles and selling them for spring water. But when they turn the faucet they discover that the odor is not precisely what might be expected from nature's crystal wells, so they steal Ethel's perfume and doctor their bum goods. It chances that another office holder, who has bought water from Bill and Izzy spills some on his coat. His wife notices the odor, and becoming suspicious, she traces it to Ethel. Ethel does a little detective work, and the two office boys are caught in the act. But his latest venture costs Bill his job. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

No. 15 of the "Bill the Office Boy" series with Fay Tincher. There can be no question about the quality of this offering. It is distinctly a good one. The office boy and his pal decide to make some money on peddling "spring" water, fresh from the upstairs tap, to their employers, taking advantage of a complaint made against the city water. To dispel its unpleasant odor the stenographer's perfume bottle is made use of, hence a pretty mix-up of affairs ensues. - The Moving Picture World, January 30, 1915
