Tony has a terrible cold and the sympathetic Mr. Strong, a fresh air enthusiast, tells him that if he will sleep out of doors he will not catch cold. Tony sees Strong's sleeping porch and thinks he will try it, but as he, Tony, has no porch he is forced to set up his bed in the street. Much to his disgust, his daughter, Anna, is in love with Izzy Silverstein, the son of an old enemy, and for fear that the young couple will elope, Tony locks his daughter in her room. But the witty girl makes a rope out of the bedclothes and, coming down from her window, lands on her father sleeping below. She escapes, but Tony gives chase. Morris Silverstein is also hot on the trail of his son Izzy. The young people make good their escape while the fathers come together in a battle royal. The cops join in the fracas and end up by arresting Morris, while Tony goes back to bed. Izzy and Anna are safely married and return to the parental home for the blessing just in time to see Tony's open air bedroom ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
