Storyline

Jackson writes his wife that he will be home the next day. He arrives to find her away. He starts to change his collar and loses the button, which rolls under the bed. His wife enters and sees his feet protruding and, thinking he is a burglar, calls a policeman. He spends the night in jail. The same night the police capture a burglar who tries to get into Jackson's house. He resists capture and lands in the hospital. In the morning Jackson is released. His wife discovers her mistake and goes to the hospital to find him, and embraces the burglar. Jackson follows her and accuses her, but learns she thought it was him.
