Storyline

Col. Scarem covertly installs a burglar alarm in his house with the dial located in his room. When dashing Fred Fuller comes to elope with his beauteous daughter Bessie, they unconsciously set off the alarm, and the Colonel barricades himself in his room and excitedly phones the Sheriff that the expected burglars have come. A quick-acting posse swoops down and carries off Fred before he can explain, and the belated Sheriff captures Bessie as she comes through the window, thinking she is a burglar. Fred eventually convinces his captors of his identity and ventures back at once to get his little bride-to-be. In the dark he picks up the colored maid and carries her to the Parson's before he finds his mistake. Then he dashes madly back to the house, and just in time, for real bandits have followed the trail of the over-sure Sheriff, and are holding up Bessie and her father.

A good deal of fun from this farce
28 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

A great many in the audience got a good deal of fun from this farce produced by William Duncan and his usual company. There is nothing new in it and very little spontaneous humor. An audience that is particular will not care for it much, but, in some places, it will go strongly. - The Moving Picture World, August 23, 1913
