Brown might have known that he took his life in his own hands when he accompanied Smith and Jones to the masque ball, being fully aware of the violence of his wife's temper, Having braved the situation thus far, he might have returned to his home early. But no, the fun was too fast and furious and there is something coming to him on his return, for Mrs. Brown sits waiting for him with a rolling pin, which she intends to bounce off his head. It is the wee hours of the morning and yet Brown cometh not. Mrs. Brown at length gets tired and retires. She has hardly done so when Brown and his friends enter still wearing their masquerade costumes, Smith as a burglar, and Jones as a copper. The sight of the rolling-pin lying on the table arouses Brown's realization of what he may expect. In the throes of his terror a scheme which seems good if it works, occurs to him. Jones as the copper must hide, Smith as the burglar is to overpower Brown, the skirmish to awaken Mrs. B. Well did the scheme work? It did in the start out, but a false move on the part of the trio discovered them and then, well we draw the curtain.- Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
