Une lettre pressée
An artist is seen in his studio, apparently waiting his periodical remittance, which is long past due. After some thought, he decides to sell one of his pictures. He first goes to an art dealer's, only to find that his painting is not wanted, the man directing him instead to a junk dealer. He goes to this merchant, who tells him he may find a demand for his picture in a liquor saloon nearby. Meanwhile a letter-carrier with a special letter which must have the signature of the artist, has called at his quarters and has been directed by the Janitor to the art dealer's store. Panting and out of breath, he reaches the store, but here is sent on to the junk dealer's. Dashing in just as the artist has left, the junk man directs him to the saloon, but the same circumstances attend him there, and he follows the artist to the home of a lady where the artist had gone to dispose of his picture, but finds that he is too late and starts back to the home of the artist once more.

A man with a bald head visits a specialist and places an order for an especially strong hair tonic. Late in the evening a messenger is dispatched with the tonic to the purchaser, but, through error, delivers to wrong flat. The contents of bottle, however, are drained by the male contingent of the family and water substituted therefore. Later on we see our friend applying the water to his head and giving liberal massage, but the soil remains as unfertile as ever. Our other friend, however, meets with better results, and he is soon covered with a luxuriant growth of hair. He is exhibited as a man monkey and, playing his part well, proves quite a drawing card with the ladies, when his wife, who is acting as his keeper, proves competent and administers to him a flogging, and one of the feminine members of the affair also comes in for an ample share.
