Nora was a splendid cook, and an acquisition to any household, but she had one drawback, she had athletic aspirations. Day after day she engaged in boxing bouts with Bridget, her friend. Finally her employers discharged her, and Nora, cast out into the dreary world, decided to become a policeman. The force welcomed her with open arms, and the life of an officer of the law appealed to her mightily. As she passed the side door of a saloon, glasses of beer were handed to her, while her heart filled with joy as she arrested women who wore hobble skirts and chased small boys shooting craps. An adventurous lunatic, however, proved her Waterloo. He was a harmless fellow, who prowled around the asylum grounds, carrying the hose for the gardener. He continually asked people for a few more feet of hose and seemed grieved that few people around the asylum supplied him with the necessary commodity. Nora was enjoying a comfortable sleep upon a doorstep when the lunatic appeared. He gently tickled her nose with a feather until she awoke. The large knife which he carried terrified her, and she ran off at full speed, followed by her pursuer. The knife was a potent argument, for every policeman in the station ran behind desks and chairs. "Can't you let me have a few feet of hose?" the lunatic inquired. The bewildered policemen complied with his request and he happily departed from the station house to the asylum. But Nora was thoroughly disgusted and disheartened and went back to the cook stove.

Brown was a married man who liked to go on sprees and stay out late. Mrs. Brown was well aware of his propensity, and did her best to curb it. While Brown, their ten-year-old son, had an exceeding fondness for jam and frequently raided the pantry, but when detected, invariably felt the weight of his parents' displeasure. Willie's likeness for jam was the first of a combination of circumstances which created "Mrs. Brown's Burglar." He was caught enjoying his favorite dainty and soundly spanked by his father, whereupon Brown departed for a night of gaiety. Willie's resentment towards his parents grew stronger. He knew his mother feared burglars, so he made a dummy with a suit of his father's clothes. He placed it under the bed in his parents' room and then summoned his mother. She promptly decided that the form under the bed was a burglar, and fled to a nearby drug store, where she telephoned the police, in the meantime, a passing tramp, noticing that the door of the Brown home was open, entered and went to sleep on the open bed. The policemen, summoned to the drug store, listened to Mrs. Brown's story and then hurried to the house. The tramp was a husky individual and he was more than a match for the three officers. While they wore struggling in the bedroom, the husband, much the worse for wear, entered his home. He heard the commotion upstairs, concluded, in his half-drunken condition, that burglars were in the house, and made his preparations. The officers, badly worsted in their fight with the hobo, fled helter-skelter down the stairs and were greeted by a volley of water from the garden hose. Finally they got the hose away from Brown and marched him off to the station. He was thrown into a cell, and had ample time to sober up and reflect upon his wrongs. Mrs. Brown, summoned to her husband's aid, proved that he was not a burglar, and Brown was released. Unfortunately for Willie, his parents discovered that he was the author of the burglar scare, and the trouncing he got was one that he long remembered, and he never, never touched jam again, not even when it was offered to him.

The Rival Pitchers

Heine and Mike were pitchers on rival baseball nines and also both were rivals for the hand of the widow Murphy. The widow was coy and kept them both in suspense. The widow liked fish and respected a man who could bring in a fine catch after a day at the seashore, so Mike set out to win fame as a fisherman. Heine chanced to be at the shore on the same errand below the dock from which Mike was fishing. Mike had great luck and caught a number of fish, but each time as he pulled them in. Heine detached them from his line. Much discouraged, Mike returned home to find Heine displaying a large catch of fish to the smiling widow. Mike, however, learned of Heine's perfidy and denounced him to the widow. Heine was in disgrace, but bided his time waiting for the great baseball game. The eventful day arrived. Heine pitched a good game for his team, but much to Mike's anguish insisted upon hitting Mike whenever he came to bat. Retaliation was out of the question, for Heine wore a football headpiece. The widow was impartial with her smiles, and the anger of Heine and Mike grew. The game was never finished, for it ended in a free fight. Mike trounced Heine thoroughly, and proudly left the grounds with the widow.

The Padre's Sacrifice

Father Curry, the kindly old …
Father Curry, the kindly old pastor of a little country church, was believed by the members of his congregation, all of them poor hard-working people. The priest was poor, also, but his home was always open to the needy, and when a human being in distress came to the little parsonage for aid. It was cheerfully given. The old priest's one ambition was that someday he could replace the little organ which had done service in the church for many years with a splendid new instrument, which would render wonderful musical tributes to the Lord. The congregation was poor, and the priest never had any money himself, for his little salary was soon expended upon the parsonage and the wayfarers who constantly appealed to him for help. The family who stood the highest in the priest's esteem was that of Rafael, a young laborer. Rafael was a faithful attendant at the church with his wife, Maria, and their little son, Tony. He was a hard-working man and a devoted husband and father. Misfortune often comes to those who least deserve it, and soon it visited Rafael. His employer discharged him, he failed to get another situation, and, worst of all, his wife's sight began to fail her. "Only the great doctor in the city can save her, Rafael," the village physician said, sadly, "and it will take much money." Rafael, with a sinking heart, realized the truth of these words. He bought luxuries for his wife and did what he could, but her condition grew worse. The landlord, angry at Rafael's failure to pay his rent, threatened him with eviction. Then the afflicted man, half mad with desperation, cried out that there was no God, for if He really existed He would not let his innocent wife and child suffer. The priest, horrified, heard this terrible utterance, but could do nothing to aid him, as he was nearly as poor as Rafael himself. What little money he had he gladly gave to the family, but the amount that would restore Maria's sight could not be raised. The good priest prayed for aid for the little family and it came in a most unexpected way. A letter came in the mail from a rich family who had visited the village many months before, enclosing a check to be devoted to his church or to any worthy purpose he might see fit. The priest thought of the organ, of the glorious music it would render, and his heart was filled with joy. Then he thought of Maria, who might never see again, and their little son, Tony. Trained to think of his flock, to place their interests above all else, he made one of his greatest sacrifices when he decided to devote the money to Rafael and his family. The little home was saved. Maria went to the city, where her sight was restored to her, and Rafael, his faith restored, humbly asked forgiveness for his blasphemous utterance. The little old organ still furnished discordant music for the worshipers in the village church, and the priest often thinks of the magnificent organ which might have taken its place, but a glance at the happy faces of the little family is payment enough for his sacrifice.

This film shows an ardent prohibitionist who is also a dyspeptic and his attempt to run the love affairs of his little daughter and a young man who believes her to be the only girl on earth. The dyspeptic prohibitionist allows their engagement, but when he finds the young man coming out of a saloon he refuses to listen to his explanation that the was there collecting the rent and incontinently breaks off the engagement. Of course, the young folks are heartbroken and of course the scene of anger which follows between the father and his little daughter brings on a violent attack of his old enemy. And thus it happens that while the young people are in the kitchen, safe from papa's eyes, discussing their misfortune and trying to plan some way out of it, the idea occurs to him that he will try a wonderful dyspepsia medicine sent him by his sister. He doesn't know that his wife has used the bottle to store cooking brandy in with the belief that it will be safe from the prohibitionist's eye; and consequently when he drinks a medicine he acquires a series of new sensations and finally a very ornamental jag which ends in sleep. As the young people had been behind the kitchen door when he got the bottle of so-called dyspepsia medicine, they know what is going on and the young man sees that it will work in very well with his plans. When papa has finally fallen asleep they slip in and the young man substitutes the empty cooking brandy bottle for the bottle of dyspepsia cure, after which the little daughter wakes up her father and demands the meaning of his condition. Of course when the prohibitionist sees before him an empty bottle of brandy, he believes that he must have been dreaming or out of his senses, and when the young man appears upon the scene and he and the little daughter threaten to tell the mother of what has gone one, he makes the best terms he can with them and consents to the re-establishment of the engagement.
