Plot The opening scene shows a policeman making his regular beat. He seems to enjoy his work, and is evidently proud of his badge of officialship. He fills his pipe, lights it, reclines upon a grassy spot along the roadside and is seen fast asleep. Dream No. 1 (Big Capture) A constable is making his beat as usual, when he observes a notice posted on a tree nearby, "$1,000 reward for capture or apprehension of Mike Stove, alias Buck Reed, cracksman and murderer; is 5 feet 6 inches tall; bony, cross on left jaw; good dresser. This reward held by R. E. Barns, Sheriff Baxter County." A man hurriedly passes the constable, but is spied by him, due to the fact that the passerby bears a cross on his left jaw. He runs after the man, and after a fierce struggle subdues and places him under arrest. At the jail the constable brings in the prisoner, hands him over to the sheriff and receives the reward. Just as he is counting the greenbacks, he wakes up, finds another soft spot and dreams again. Dream No. 2 (A Hero) A beautiful young girl is taking her morning gallop along the highway on a very spirited saddle horse. As she is about to turn into another road a large automobile dashes by and badly frightens the horse; he bolts, dashes down the road, with the girl clinging helplessly to his neck. The officer catches sight of the approaching runaway, runs forward, seizes the horse and stops him in a most heroic manner. Citizens rush up just as the exhausted girl falls into the arms of the cop, who squeezes her so hard that he again wakes up. Dream No. 3 (In Love) A moonlight scene. In her home a beautiful young girl is waiting for her lover. She is very impatient, but at last sees him coming, leans out over the Venetian window and waves at him. The policeman enters and the two embrace and kiss each other. At last he is kissing her good-night, when from above a pail of cold water soaks him from head to foot and he awakens to the reality of a pail of water being poured on him by a joker who caught him asleep. Even after this ducking he is sleepy, and further along the road sits down to doze again. A Hot Awakening. Two boys observe the policeman and decide to awaken him in a most singular manner. They pile a lot of dry grass, set it on fire, then hide behind a stump to await developments. The officer dreams that he is heroically rushing up a ladder in front of a burning building. He dashes into the fire and smoke just as the real flames begin to scorch him, and in fright he takes to flight, to the extreme joy of the two boys.... search for A Policeman's Dream on IMDb
