Annoyed that Percival would rather court Miss Ashton than rob the bank, however, Mike and Bill decide to kidnap the children and hold them for ransom. Imprisoned in a cellar, Jane and Katherine torment the two men with their pranks until the crooks willingly release them, but Percival stages a rescue that, much to the girls' dismay, impresses Miss Ashton. Later Percival and his men rob the bank, but the youngsters aid the police in catching them. Miss Ashton then happily agrees to marry ... +
