Hanks & Shanks advertise for a young lady stenographer. In response they are deluged with a bevy of pretty girls who apply for the position. The office boy receives them with great dignity. When the two bosses arrive they find it very hard to make a choice, but finally decide upon two. While they are trying them out a homely old maid comes in and insists upon seeing the heads. Shanks peeps from his private office and falls into his chair. Hanks then takes a look and he falls on top of Shanks. The stenographer dares a look and falls into Hank's lap. While in this position, Mrs. Hanks and Mrs. Shanks arrive and find their husbands with the pretty young stenographer in their arms. The two wives employ the old maid. This is too much for the two partners, so they leave the office and seek consolation with a "bracer" at a nearby café.
