Storyline

Dingley's girl won't marry him because he smokes. He disposes of his pipes, cigars and cigarettes, saying if she will have him he will never smoke again. His self-denial causes him untold agony. On his wedding day he receives presents of cigars, tobacco, pipes, smoking jackets and everything which goes with a complete smoker's outfit. A few days later a friend sends him a present of a fine pipe, accompanied by a note, which he tries to hide from his wife. She becomes suspicious and employs "Sherlie Homes," the detective, to find out what ails her husband. He comes to the house and finds the pipe which Dingley has hidden, also the note. His "sleuthship" divines the cause of her husband's queer notions, and, when he enters the room, "Sherlie Homes" directs the wife to follow his instructions and her husband will be all right again. He tells her to fill Dingley's pipe with tobacco, light it, and allow him to have the privilege of smoking in his own home as much as possible. Dingley ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
