Storyline

In the office where Lionel is employed is a bevy of pretty girl stenographers who, though in a measure fond of Lionel, at times become greatly provoked with him because of his boyish pranks. Lionel advertises the fact that his birthday is approaching and advises the girls to sit up and take notice; he also tells them that he should like them to present him with a watch in remembrance. The girls say that they will be glad to give him one if he will promise to conduct himself with decorum. All goes well until the day before. Accident follows accident and as a result he is "in bad" with all the young ladies. They tell him he will have to do something to regain their favor. Lionel's wits commence to work. He has an Italian fruit seller who is a friend. He confides in him and together they concoct a scheme which they put through. It works well and as a result he gets the watch after all.
