Storyline

Jack and Louise love each other, but Louise's popper and mommer object. Jack and a pal, with Louise as the third conspirator, plan to frighten the old people into giving consent. They masquerade as burglars, slip into the house and steal away with all the plate, after making the old man shine Jack's shoes and the mother manicure his nails. Jack then returns with the booty, playing the hero, but the old man notices his polished shoes and the old lady his fingernails, and Jack is forced in turn to shine the old man's shoes.
