Summary

Poor old Higgins, who has been noticing the sylph-like forms of other women, is much distressed at the goodly proportions of his own worthy spouse. He decides to remedy matters and his friend procures for him a bottle of Dr. Thin's Anti-Fat, which can be easily administered by putting a few drops into his wife's coffee. Coincident with this Higgins determines to renew his wife's life insurance. Hurrying from the house for this purpose, he accidentally drops from his pocket a note which had accompanied the bottle of Anti-Fat, and which is found by a policeman who senses a possible crime. He trails Higgins to the insurance office, notes the renewal of the insurance and then follows him home, where he sees Higgins putting the poison (?) in his wife's coffee. He is arrested, but is able to prove his innocence and the treatment of Anti-Fat is forthwith discontinued.
