|Plot||Billy Barnes, a young reporter on a large city daily, is engaged to a young woman of the name of Bettina. He urges her to marry him at once. She replies that she will wed him upon the event of his next raise. Somewhat encouraged, Billy goes to work and finds there opportunity awaiting him. The city editor tells him to go to the house of a certain young society woman, who is at the time mixed up in a divorce scandal, and procure, by hook or by crook, a certain packet of letters, which are said to contain all the details in regard to the case, which the newspapers are most anxious to get. Billy, upon arriving at the front door of the mansion, is thrown down the steps by an able and irate butler. Nothing daunted, he watches the house in the hope of intercepting the matron in one of her trips. He sees the milkman coming and surmises that the domestic, like most hopelessly unattractive people, is over-anxious for affection of any sort. Billy, thinking he sees a chance, bribes the milkman to allow him to change places with him. Bridget is much impressed by the appearance of the new delivery man, and also delighted at the fact that he seems strongly attracted to her. He is invited to a cup of tea in the kitchen. Unknown to Billy, his sweetheart, Bettina, is a social friend of the grass widow, and she happens to be visiting at the house as Billy is being entertained by the maid. As girls will, they immediately change confidences, and in less time than it takes to tell it, Bettina has the much sought-for letters in her hand. The divorcée rings for tea. This takes us to the kitchen, where Bridget is too taken up with her new "gintlemin frind," the milkman, to notice anything so mundane as the jingling call to duty. In the adjoining room, impatient at the delay, the two women start out to the kitchen to investigate, where Bettina, still clutching the precious packet of letters, upon seeing her fiancé in the embrace of Bridget is so shocked that she drops the letters. The young divorcée, alarmed and forgetful of her treasure, supports Bettina, as Billy beats a hasty retreat with the package of letters, leaving the poor, amazed Bridget to finish the fight. At the newspaper everything is in a rush on the front page and Billy has his raise. The city editor accompanies Billy on his next visit to Bettina, and a warm reception is accorded them. The suave manner of the editor soon pacifies the irate Bettina, and he leaves the lovers in a fond embrace.... search for A Divorce Scandal on IMDb|
