They are afraid that he will come in upon them at the least unexpected moment. Early in the afternoon of the same day, Mr. Cobb is asked by a neighbor to help in removing a stove. During the operation he covers his hand and face with soot, and on his way home is accosted by the constable and a volunteer who are in search of the escaped lunatic. When he reaches his house, the quilting bee rush out. They see the supposed lunatic enter the cellar, and hold the door down until the constable arrives. Mrs. Cobb then recognizes her husband, and all ends happily. Written By Moving Picture World synopsis  Less
