A young man and a widow elope. A chambermaid finds out and demands a $2 bribe. Only $1.98 can be raised and the two cents must be stolen from a monkey attached to a hand grinder. Miss Countiss played the widow with elaborate modesty and the young man was required to wear a bathrobe only and made no impression.
"Wedded by Wire'
The sketch was neither amusing nor well played.
