THE LUBIN BULLETIN I J i I Written by WALTER SMITH J proof sock, is so enthusiastic that he can think and talk of nothing else. While in his office he receives a message from his wife requesting him to bring her new evening gown, as she must wear it at a reception she is giving. Tomkins secures the gown but on his way home he meets an acquaintance. He immediately begins to talk socks and by way of demonstration pulls off his shoe which he places on the rail of a viaduct and promptly knocks it off in one of his extravagant gestures. The shoe falls on the head of an Italian organ grinder who thinks it was thrown from an office window. He rushes into the building seeking some one with only one shoe. The shoe is tossed about from place to place and Tomkins follows close on its trail but does not overtake it until a tramp finds it and throws it in the water. 23M0L.W H MHOL j y//m <n Split Red, Released Saturday, August 15, 1914, { The^SSr'/praof Sock'fiX"* “ungthVboui 600 feet. LUBIN FILMS They Bought a Boat Written by J. A. MURPHY J ACK BURNS and BILLY HALE buy a motor boat. Swelled with the import- ance of ownership, they invest in uni- forms and engage a cabin boy weighing three hundred pounds. They are about to make a trial when the Government Inspector warns them that they are lacking in necessary equipment, such as life preservers, fire apparatus, fog horns, lights, etc. They buy enough equip- ment to sink a battleship and when it is all loaded on it comes near swamping the boat. They put “out to sea,” however, and their friends watch them from the shore. The boat leaks and a panic ensues. They try to bail the water out with tin cups while the cabin boy puts the pump hose overboard and pumps water into the boat. They yell loudly for "Help.” An old sailor wades out to see what is the matter and tells them that they are aground in ten inches of water and had better walk ashore.
