  • A young, buxom farm maid overhears two cow-hands talking in the barn, and she's convinced they're about to rob her. She barricades herself in a room and calls the police. Her call wakes the chief, who rallies the constabulary and they sets off toward the farm, in steam-car and on foot. Meanwhile, the maid's parents rush to save her (dad's waving a pistol), as do neighboring farmers, armed with shotgun, pitchfork, and shovel. Everything points toward a showdown in the barn, where no one, including the police force, will be cowed.

  • Delia expresses her wish for a calf to play with and her father to surprise her buys one and has it sent home. Delia sees the men in the barn and thinking they are thieves, telephones for the police. They have many amusing adventures in reaching the scene in an old automobile, which finally blows up. Delia has locked the doors and piled the furniture against them, and all efforts of the rescuing party meet with added screams on her part. The door is finally broken down and she is dragged from a closet where she has taken refuge, and the situation is cleared.

  • At a farm near Bangville, the young daughter see strangers in the barn. She quickly rushes to the house and calls the police. The police engage in a haphazard rush across the countryside to get there in time.
