Storyline

Mr. Abbot and his son Billy are both in the habit of visiting Mrs. Pierce and her daughter, Dorothy. One evening Mrs. Pierce sees Mr. Abbot rudely push her pet kitten from the chair that he may sit down. She later serves tea. When he insists on two lumps of sugar instead of one, she loses her temper and an argument ensues, culminating in the young people being torn from each other's arms and the elders parting in anger. Billy and Dorothy confide their troubles to their friends, who conspire to adjust matters. They kidnap the elders, blindfold them, and turn them loose in a darkened room. When the light is turned on they indulge in mutual recrimination until they are persuaded by the young people to make up. Billy and Dorothy elope, and at the finish of the ceremony Mr. Abbot and Mrs. Pierce are brought in. They forgive and are married and all four depart on their honeymoon.
