Scoop wishes he hadn't got married. Otherwise he might have a chance with the overclad doxy who just breezed past.

In punishment, he is veiled and locked to a bed. This is more disturbing than you might think. This is actually the beginning of an arc. I went back to see if this paper carried Scoop in June; it didn't. I don't know if Scoop began in October of 1915, but that's where this paper started the strip.
