Storyline

A tramp in his haste to escape from the clutches of the law rushes into a second-hand store and hides in a folding lounge. An old maid later purchases the lounge, and after having it delivered to her house, discovers the lounge moving. Becoming frightened, but yet not wishing to lose upon the investment, she sells it to a neighbor. The neighbor, after undergoing a similar experience, sells it to someone else; the lounge changing hands continually until at last it is sold back to the second-hand dealer, and ultimately purchased by the same policeman from whom the tramp escaped. After having it delivered to his residence, the policeman discovers the tramp and arrests him. This is the story told briefly, but is brimful of clean, laughable comedy; the lounge in transit falling from the express wagon; being dumped up and down stairs, etc. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
