Storyline

The old astronomer objects to his daughter's choice of a fiancé, and orders him away. He vows to get even. An idea strikes him as he passes a store where fireworks are sold. Procuring a lot of Roman candles, etc., he mounts the roof and holds the sputtering torches in front of the telescopic lens, at the same time throwing a stone through the skylight. The old professor is decorated by the Astronomical Society as receiving a message from the moon in the shape of a meteor. Here is the young man's chance. Papa must give his consent or be exposed as a fraud. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
