  • A fussy old maid, who has a constant fear of burglars, is about to lock up her home for an out-of-town visit. On her way to the railroad depot she stops at the nearest police station with a request that her premises be closely watched during her absence. The sergeant calls the policeman of that particular post, who enters her name and address in his notebook. She then hurries to the depot, arriving just as the last train is pulling out. In her anxiety to catch it, she stumbles and falls. Disappointed and bruised she returns home. That night the policeman, while on duty, pays especial attention to her house, and seeing alight, also the shadow of a moving body on the window shade of an upper room, jumps to the conclusion that it is a burglar, and sets about to capture him. The old maid, who is about to retire for the night, hears the policeman trying the door and window and becomes greatly alarmed, under the impression that a burglar is prowling about the house. Half dead with fright she hides in the wardrobe, where she nearly suffocates. By this time the policeman has gained an entrance and is cautiously looking about the room when mysterious sounds coming from the wardrobe startle him. Revolver in hand, he opens the wardrobe door to capture his man when, to his utter disgust and dismay, the old maid falls into his arms.
