Storyline

A rubber automaton gets its wires crossed and passes out of the control of its inventor. In its rampage it throws the inventor and his family out of the window, and when they call in the police the rubber man proves himself more than a match for three of them and makes his escape to the street. Here he continues his devastating way and all who cross his path are made to suffer. An old maid, whose home he enters, is unceremoniously shoved up a chimney, to be rescued by the pursuers, and in a dry goods store both place and shoppers are wrecked before the rubber man can be chased out. Now the pursuit leads to the country, and there is a lively game of fox and hounds, but the rubber man doubles and returns to the city, where a dive through a bass drum adds a German band to the number of his victims. At last they catch up with him and duck him in a horse trough. The water disarranges the delicate machinery and the rubber man is again a mere automaton robbed of possibilities for destruction.
