    Titles read: "Caught by the Camera".

    Various locations of events.

    In Vienna, Austria, we see several shots of a dog show exclusively for Fox Terriers, held by the Austrian Fox Terrier Club. There is a prize for the smartest dog in the smartest car - this year's winner is a fine specimen! (He looks out of the window of a car with his mistress). More dogs are groomed and paraded around the ground. The champion is seen with a laurel wreath around his neck. Two dogs bark at each other and strain against their leads.

    In Philadelphia, United States of America, we see how a dishonest butcher can add weight to his scales by pulling on a piece of string attached to the machine. Men of the police department are seen smashing similar dodgy machines with hammers, and shattering milk bottles that do not hold a full pint. Balls of thread or string are unwound and checked for length; beer barrels are chopped up.

    In France we see fishermen catching Sturgeon fish that caviar is taken from. They haul a huge one aboard and hang her up when they reach the shore.
