Will Deming, a club man and hale fellow well met, returns home about six a.m. with somewhat of a jag. His wife, who has been patiently awaiting his return, notices his condition and an argument ensues in which her umbrella plays an all important part. A day or so later he appears at his club slightly disfigured. When his friends prove inquisitive regarding his appearance, he allows his imagination to get the better of him, and tells of a most remarkable experience, in which he, of course, was the hero. His story almost gets over, but Fate takes a hand by producing an amateur photographer who happened to be passing Deming's house during the argument. The snapshot which the amateur presents for approval puts Deming into the Ananias class.
