A portly man of business is seen in his office, paying close attention to a bottle of whiskey, which he hastily hides in the safe as his wife enters. The latter, a formidable lady, takes him home, and forces him to spend a quiet evening with her in the drawing room. Meanwhile, at the office, two burglars, who have entered through the window, are busy at the safe with a crowbar. They find the bottle of whiskey and some cigars, and indulge so liberally that they are soon sleeping peacefully on the floor. There they lie until the morning, when hubby appears and seeing the state of things, hastily rings up his wife, who appears shortly afterwards with two policemen. The men secure, hubby points out the bottle to his wife with pride as a new burglar alarm.
