Nora, the cook, is charmed by the uniform and frequently entertains the roundsman in the kitchen. This is quite distressing to Mike, the iceman, and when he complains Nora tells him he will have to join the force before she will consider him. Determined to make good, Mike joins the force. His attention is called to a reward which is offered for Slippery Pete, a noted burglar. A butcher is killing some chickens when one escapes him and he chases it down the alley with his cleaver. Mike mistakes the butcher's purpose and flees in terror. His flight carries him right into the arms of the burglar. When he has secured the reward, Mike resigns from the force, declaring that he will not be able to risk his life after he is married.
