Moeder's dappere kind
A plumber comes to the home of a business man to do some work and sees the man counting his money. When the business man is suddenly called away and no-one can find the keys of the safe, his wife decides to lock the money in a cabinet in her bedroom, something the plumber observes. That night he returns to the house and, from an adjoining room, saws a hole in the wall and the back of the cabinet and reaches out his hand to steal the money.Luckily, the wife has been disturbed in her sleep by the noise. With a piece of rope she manages to catch hold of the burglar's arm and prevent him from escaping. She sends her little son to fetch the police. The boy succeeds in alarming some policemen who return with him and arrest the burglar.
