A young man is so bored by his existence that he advertises his house for sale and determines to go off in search of adventure. He gets his wish, but without leaving the house. "Among other things," says the World, "he has his eye out for the 'flash' of love at first sight, and he imagines he sees it in the gorgeous lady who rushes into his quiet life with the thrilling tale that she is a celebrated Russian dancer who has escaped from Moscow with the priceless jewels of an awfully grand duchess, and is being pursued by a terrible Bolshevist. Will not the brave gentleman save her and show her a hiding-place for the jewels? Will he? In a minute! Thus she learns of a secret cabinet in which there is a parchment giving the details of a supposed hidden treasure, and this is what she is after. The parchment states that an ancestor of Ambrose Applejohn was a notorious pirate. To guard against burglars who are prowling about, Ambrose sits up all night, only to fall asleep and dream he is a pirate." The pirate scene is then enacted, but after it comes a real scene quite as exciting and picturesque. An ideal play for everyone: clean, amusing, and thrilling.
