|Plot||Silk Hat Joe observes Mrs. Brainerd's jewels, ascertains the number and location of the room of herself and husband at the hotel, gains a peek therein by picking up a handkerchief which she dropped in the elevator, and which he restores to her. When later he meets them in a café, he observes that she is not wearing the pearls he envied so much, and concludes they must be in her room. The next scene shows him busily at work in Mrs. Brainerd's apartment. He finds the jewel-box and takes a necklace. He picks up a long stocking box from the dresser and observes it is filled with silk hose, which he jams in his outer pocket for luck. Then he rushes down the street, scents pursuit, and in his haste drops the box of stockings. Robert Hawley happens along, picks up the package, and after observing there is no name on it, concludes to send it to his fiancée, Doris. This lovely young lady, receiving the gift, is more than delighted. Of course, the Brainerds soon discover their loss, acquaint the police with the facts of the case as far as they know, and detectives are instructed to search for the pearls, likewise silk stockings of a certain make and marking. A few nights thereafter, Mr. and Mrs. Brainerd are dining at the St. Janis, and at the next table are seated Robert Hawley and his sweetheart. The latter, unconsciously, cocks her daintily-booted foot a trifle too high, exposing a plump limb with silk encasing. This catches the observant eye of Mrs. Brainerd, who informs her husband. Detectives are summoned; Robert and his would-be bride are arrested and taken to the station-house, where the latter submits to the humiliation of an examination by the matron. A flash-in shows a terrific struggle between the police and an unknown man in the alley. The result is that Silk Hat Joe is dragged into the stationhouse as the other parties are making their complaint. When he is searched, the necklace is revealed. The Brainerds recognize him; he admits the game is up, and poor little Doris, who received the gift of the silk stockings, gets them in reality, and is otherwise recompensed for her humiliation.... search for A Pair of Stockings on IMDb|
