Plot

Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy are visited by John Wallace, an old friend. A few evenings later. Kennedy is called away, and shortly after, Mrs. Kennedy and Wallace retire. Half undressed, Mrs. Kennedy is frightened by a mouse. She jumps on a chair which topples over, and sprains her wrist. She again catches sight of Mr. Mouse, and runs screaming down the stairs, followed by Wallace in his pajamas who was awakened. He catches up with her, and she faints in his arms. Wallace, threatened with instant death, escapes into the street, only to rush into the hands of a policeman. After a terrific struggle, the officer takes him to headquarters. Dr. Gray is called to help Mrs. Kennedy, who is nearly ready to drop, with the pain and fear of the outcome of' their predicament. The police sergeant also calls the doctor to attend Wallace, who is acting like a raving maniac. The doctor learns both Mrs. Kennedy's and Wallace's versions of the trouble. He understands how it all occurred, and after explanations to the police, takes Wallace back to Kennedy's house, where there are more explanations, and after Kennedy has begged Wallace's pardon, departs. Kennedy then humbly begs his wife's pardon. Soon she forgives him and the awkward incident is a closed chapter. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
