Bob, an employee of the office, is very much taken by Pansy, and she by him; he follows her out with admiring eyes. It is part of his duties in the renting department to go about putting up "for rent" signs on the houses. He reaches the house in the suburbs before Pansy does, places "for rent" signs in the yard and drawing room windows and goes on to the next house, where he finds that he has lost his hammer and remembers that he left it in the room at the last house.

They take her money and jewels and then match for her. One man wins and relinquishes the money and jewels ...
