Storyline

The editor of the "Rising Sun," angry at a scoop of a rival paper, instructs his reporter to write up "How it Feels to Be a Burglar." The reporter, in despair, accepts the dark lantern, etc. Finding a ladder which some painters had left in front of a house, the reporter concludes that his chance has come, climbs the ladder and enters the window. The room he enters is in semi-darkness and in his excitement he knocks over a chair. After recovering from his fright he seeks for a suitable article to take with him and concludes that the portieres will do. He lights a match, and in the flare sees the face of a statue on a pedestal in front of him which puts him in a terrible scare. He backs into the piano, pulling the statue down, which falls crashing to the floor. The noise awakens Mr. and Mrs. Snow, he escaping downstairs, and she calling the police, but Snow's troubles had just begun, as Jones was on the job and finally succeeds in locking the frightened Snow up in a cabinet and escapes ...
