But such is fate. Entering with these above mentioned articles of feminine apparel, they excite the covetousness of the servants. We all know that the most serious servant question is "How do I look in Madam's clothes?" Mr. Jenkins starts off on a business trip and Mrs. J. sits and dozes in a Morris chair. Fine for the housemaid, who has a date with her sweetheart. She wears the coat and hat, intending to show her beau how she looks in fine feathers. Jenkins, meanwhile has arrived at the railroad station and finds his tram an hour late. He will go back home for the time, and on the way sees what he imagines his wife in the arms of a strange man. Rushing up, he proceeds to annihilate the supposed wrecker of his home, while the coat and hat with its wearer disappear. When Jenkins enters and finds his wife asleep and the articles in place, he is mystified, satisfied in a measure that he was mistaken. Sheepishly he exits and starts back to the railroad station, where he is this time just one second too late. Nothing to do now but go home and wait for the train. On the way back, he espies the coat and hat, the wearer in the arms of a sailor. This time it is the kitchen-maid. With a cry, "What, another?" he springs at the sailor, and is effectively done up by the burly tar, the kitchen girl having "beat it," putting the hat hack where it is later appropriated by the colored maid. Mrs. J. awakes and discovering the loss, gives alarm and a policeman is put on the trail. This policeman finds the missing duds in Jenkins' possession for he has caught the maid and taken them from her. Things look conclusive as to Jenkins being the thief and he is arrested, his wife notified, and through her identification is released, Jenkins' little act of generosity cost him several cases of heart failure, an arrest, a bedraggled suit of clothes and two black eyes.
