A shipment of merchandise from France arrives at Cohen's Millinery, and is placed outside the storefront, where Mr. Cohen opens it up. When he and his employees have gone back into the store for a moment, a trash collector mistakenly picks up the crate and carries it off. A frantic chase results in most of the hats being scattered throughout the neighborhood. Later, Mr. Cohen, upset about the loss, looks for a way to make some of his money back.
