Tracy catches fire while being dragged behind the car driven by Measles. His coat tear loose, and he rolls into a ditch where the police find him and take him to a hospital. Gravel Gertie keeps two of Measles' henchmen at bay with an axe. Measles abandons his car and hides in a lineman's aerial tent until the police pass by. He leaves the tent and heads for a watchman's residence on the railroad, hoping to find some shelter there.
