|Plot||A very exciting subject, illustrating the adventures of a henpecked husband in attempting to escape the wrath of his spouse because he endeavors to appropriate one shilling of his wages. Having received his pay envelope, the man is seen to abstract a coin and put it in his pocket; the other he carries in his hand until he turns the corner, where he meets his wife, to whom he delivers the balance. Counting it over carefully, she misses the shilling and throws the rest on the ground in anger. The man gathers this up quickly and is off down the street. His wife in his wake is wildly gesticulating, and manages to keep up with him. Turning a corner, the woman loses sight of the man for a moment, and unfortunately gets her hands on another man, who gets a good boxing. After a number of ludicrous experiences the man eludes the woman by getting into a shipping box in an alley. Two men coming out of the establishment at this time nail down the lid of the box without having noticed its contents. They carry the box around to a wagon on the street and load it on the top of an already high load. Down the street a ways the box drops off, is reloaded and, after some rough driving, the apparent destination is reached, and turning it over edgeways a number of times it is finally landed at the side of a building, where tackle is applied, and in this manner it is hoisted, but when near the top it drops and the box smashes to pieces. Out of the debris they pick up our hero, more dead than alive. Wishing to do him a kind act they carry him to his home, and their knock is answered by the madam, who, as a reward, gives both a beating and throws the husband over her knee for the deserved thrashing.... search for A Shilling Short of his Wages on IMDb|
