Shows a family having supper around a table in a pantry. Their domestic routine is disturbed by a stoker who, evidently working on a train passing under the house, pokes his head through the cellar door in the pantry floor. The stoker apologises for his interruption and asks whether the ladies can give him a 'scuttle o' coals for our engine'
