Mr. Twiddle plays trumpet for a living. He is overworked and a bit shell-shocked. His doctor suggest a quiet mountain retreat. The place is so quiet that people communicate using signs. The man gets into his room and settles in for a good night’s sleep. But before he can nod off, the people in the next room start playing a trombone and laughing (the original Okeh Laughing Record is used as the soundtrack). After several unsuccessful attempts to get them to stop, he finally rushes into the room to find his doctor in there.
