Essanay's A Woman's Wit was issued in tandem with the same studio's The Widow. The woman in question is alone in her bedroom when she discovers that a burglar is hiding on the premises. For reasons unexplained at first, she pretends not to notice the intruder, calmly preparing for bed and then leaving the room. Once outside, she rushes to the telephone and notifies the police. At this point, the burglar, not knowing that the cops are on the way, prepares to make a quick exit. Turning on the charm, the woman devises several strategies to prevent the burglar from leaving. Alas, he catches on, whereupon he grabs the woman around the throat and begins throttling the life out of her. Just in the nick of time, the police arrive, billy-clubs and handcuffs at the ready.
