Ashby Leene, once a famous actor, but now poverty stricken, dies, leaving his grandchild, Lizette, in the care of Granny Page, his landlady. Lizette's new home is one of kindliness and she becomes a friend of Paul, Granny's young nephew, who runs a newsstand. Remembering her promise, Granny spends a good deal of time at the newsstand when Paul is away on deliveries. She resents Dan Nye's attention to Lizette. One day Lizette sells a paper to Henry Faure, an elderly millionaire, who is attracted to the bright-faced girl. Faure has been mentally depressed since the death of his wife and little girl. Longing for someone to love, Faure offers to adopt Lizette as his own daughter. Though Paul and Granny are heartbroken, they consent. For a time Lizette is happy in her new home. While Faure is away on business, Lizette visits her old friends. Faure unexpectedly returns. To his dismay Lizette begs that he let her stay a while longer with Granny. He reluctantly consents. His old depression returns. The housekeeper finally writes Lizette, begging her to return for Faure's sake. Lizette finds an abandoned infant on the doorstep upon her return. She is overjoyed. She is admitted by the butler, who is aghast to see that she has returned with a baby. When questioned, she tells them that she is the baby's mother, etc. Faure asks her about the child's father. Lizette innocently answers that she don't know. She realizes in a vague way that babies have fathers and, seeing that everyone is greatly upset, she decides that if the baby must have a father she will give Dan Nye the honor of naming him. Faure loves her so much that he cannot find it in his heart to denounce her. Nor can the kind old housekeeper, who is highly amused at Lizette's lack of knowledge about babies. Dan Nye is amazed when Faure calls to see him and charges him with being the father of Lizette's baby. He conceals his astonishment, quick to realize that he has an unusual opportunity for blackmail in the affair. When Faure declares he must marry Lizette for the sake of her good name, Nye admits he is the baby's father, but refuses to marry the girl unless Faure pays him an exorbitant sum. Faure agrees to this, upon the condition that he accompany him and marry Lizette at once. The young woman who abandoned the child calls to reclaim it, but Lizette is unwilling to give it up. But she is finally induced to give it back to the rightful mother. Nye is thrown out of the house, and Paul, who has long cherished a love for Lizette, is made happy by her acceptance of him.

The Indian chief mourns for and is burying his little child, and his squaw is inconsolable. An Indian goes to a saloon and is plied with the forbidden firewater. Another Indian tries to get him to leave. He refuses and when he finds he is being tricked by a gambler, a fight ensues and the Indian is killed. His companion escapes and tells the chief that his brother has been killed by a pale face. The chief swears vengeance. He goes to the fort to demand justice, and is told that Red Tape demands a civil and not a military trial. The chief, unable to comprehend and believing that there is no justice where the redskins are concerned, takes an oath over his brother's body to exterminate the pale faces. The Indians go on the warpath. They first attack isolated settlers and in one instance are repulsed by sharp shooters, who pick off several of the redskins from a tree. Prairie schooners, filled with settlers fleeing from the avenging Indians, leave their wagons and ride off on the horses. A party of several wagons is caught and massacred. A woman has her baby torn from her arms by the Indian chief, who is about to kill both when his squaw, with the mother instinct, begs him to save the woman and to let her have the child to fill the void caused by the loss of her own baby. The Indians decamp with the little girl, and when the troopers arrive they find a raving woman, bereft of reason. The squaw cuddles the baby to her bosom and is content. Fifteen years later the poor mad woman lives in a tree house. It is partially ornamented with scalps, scalps of Indians, for the wild woman has become the scourge of the red man. She hunts amongst the rocks. When the Indians approach she throws a rock at one of them. He falls dead. His superstitious companions flee in terror. The wild woman laughs with glee and adds another scalp to her collection. The little white child taken by the squaw grows into a beautiful young woman and she lives happily with the Indians and is attached to the squaw. The authorities at Washington write to the commandant of the fort, requesting that investigation be made of the presence of a wild woman stated to be in the vicinity of the fort, a young lieutenant offers to take it up unofficially, and is granted permission. The wild woman kills another Indian and the tribe is filled with terror. The young lieutenant, at the head of a detachment, visits the Indians and learns of the terrible scourge. Several of them lead the lieutenant to the scene of the outrages. The wild woman sees the cavalry and hesitates. Then she sees the Indians and savagely kills one with a rock from her three home. An Indian fires, and the lieutenant climbs the tree and finds her desperately wounded on her platform. The cavalry take her, unconscious to the Indian camp where she is laid on a pallet in a tepee. White Dove bathes her head and the woman comes to and looks at her curiously. She suddenly grabs at the locket White Dove is wearing and faints. The lieutenant notes all this and interviews the chief, when he learns how his squaw adopted the child, thinking the mother dead. The lieutenant is much attracted to the beautiful girl. Time passes. The mother recovers her reason and is taken back to civilization.

Violet De Ray opens up a barber shop at Roaring Gulch. Violet not only does a ripping good business, but she unconsciously has a hand in hurrying along several matrimonial affairs which have hung fire. This is notably the case with Si, who has loved bashfully and at a respectable distance for years. He is lured into Violet's shop, and after his chin whiskers have been clipped he emerges elated; and this coupled with Mandy's desire to protect him from such evil influences, cements a long drawn out romance. Marcia Allen is a flirt. Her pa takes her to the window, so that she may see her Jack being patted and petted, after which Marcia is not so coy. Pa's desire to get into the lady barber's shop never consummates, owing to Ma's vigilance, and when Pa, with malice aforethought, injures his hand so that he cannot shave himself, Ma officiates with disastrous results as far as Pa's beauty and comfort are concerned. The ladies of Roaring Gulch eventually meet and decide to oust this interloper and innovator. They swoop down upon her in a body; they look through the widow and see the minx kissing a gentleman of Italian extraction. They enter and make themselves very unpleasant and discover that the man is Violet's husband. Violet is persuaded to leave and does so in good financial circumstances, and Bill the barber's smile returns and he does his customary business as of yore.

As soon as Joe appears, she sends him away, telling him that her niece is much too young to marry. Joe, who lives with his Uncle Bill, hurries home, and after a good deal of pleading Uncle Bill agrees to go to the aunt to try and get Aunt Jennie to consent to the union of the young people. He goes, but Aunt Jennie, thinking that Uncle Bill is proposing to her, accepts. Uncle Bill is both angry and miserable and turning on Joe, he absolutely refuses to help him further, declaring that one fool in the family is enough. Aunt Jennie writes a note to her rector, and sends it by Dorothy: "J.B. Chapin, Reverend Sir. Will you kindly call at my house at three o'clock, June 24th, to perform a marriage ceremony. Yours very truly, Jennie Meldon." As soon as Dorothy shows it to Joe, instead of allowing her to deliver it he hurries with it to the bunk house, and there he and the boys plan a reply from the rector to be delivered to Aunt Jennie on the day of the ceremony: "My Dear Miss Meldon, Owing to an attack of rheumatism, I will be unable to come to your ranch. However, if you will call at my house, I will be pleased to perform the ceremony. Yours sincerely, J.H. Chapin." The happy day arrives. The big barn is handsomely decorated and a feast prepared for the guests. The boys watch for the minister, and as soon as he arrives, hurry him out of the way, while the foreman enters with the note he is supposed to have written. Aunt Jennie is much annoyed, but bound not to be disappointed, insists upon Uncle Bill going with her to his home. Upon their arrival, however, they find a note pinned to the door: "Have gone to Meldon Ranch. Will return about 6 o'clock. J.H. Chapin." Puzzled and angry, Aunt Jennie hustles Uncle Bill back to her ranch, only to find that Dorothy and Joe have been made one by the minister she had called to the house.

Three actors, Tom, Dick and Harry, have had a tough season, but the landlady needs the money just the same and comes to their door. Tom and Dick instantly hide, leaving Harry to pacify her as best he can. A little later, when they see the following headlines in a newspaper: "Good actors are in great demand in California for moving pictures. Fourteen companies operating in and about Los Angeles." Tom and Dick conceive the brilliant idea of going out west. Harry objects that they have no money for food on the way, let alone railroad fare, but Tom quietly helps himself to Harry's pin, watch and ring, which he pawns to get their food and declares they will ride in a box car. That night, they put one over on the landlady by slipping out without paying and hurry to the train yards, where they conceal themselves in an empty car and are soon on their way west. Early the next morning, the brakeman appears and tells them unless they "come across" with a little coin, he will put them off. As usual, Harry is the Patsy, handing over all the money he has left. They arrive in the glorious west and the Yardmaster gives them a true western welcome by seeing how near he can shoot without hitting them. As they sit down beside the road to rest, they see a reward sign for the bandit "Black Bill" and, upon studying it more closely, Tom and Dick decide that with a beard they can make Harry a bandit and claim the reward, and this decision is further strengthened by getting a look at the real bandit as he rides past, cleverly eluding the sheriff and his posse. Harry strenuously objects but to no avail, and they instantly start to make him up for the bandit. As they are doing this, "Black Bill" returns unobserved by the boys and, thinking the resemblance good enough, decides to use the idea himself. He chases Tom and Dick away and then marches Harry to his shack, where he quickly shaves off his beard, takes the actor's clothes and hurries Harry to the sheriff's office. Here, Harry takes Bill unawares, snatches the sheriff's revolver, commands the bandit to hold up his hands, and then explains the situation to the sheriff. When the deputy enters, he recognizes Bill as the real bandit and Bill is quickly locked up. Harry receives not only his clothes, but the reward and hurries to the station, where he boards the train for the east. Just as it moves out, Tom and Dick, weary and foot-sore, arrive. They attempt to catch the train upon seeing Harry, but he waves them good-bye and the boys are forced to strike out for home by walking the railroad ties, having had quite enough of the west to last them for a while.

Poor, henpecked Jed is left to sweep the floor and wash the dishes while his wife, Judy, goes to the village to shop. No sooner is she gone, however, than Jed seats himself to have a good smoke, a forbidden pleasure in the house. Judy, returning unexpectedly, surprises her frightened husband and taking him by the ear, marches him into the kitchen to wash the dishes, while she sits calmly in the sitting-room to wait until he has finished. As he is carrying the dish-pan to the sink it falls, breaking his wife's best china. With one glance toward the sitting-room door, Jed dives through the window, and when Judy gets to the kitchen, Jed is already half way down the street. Arriving at the village, two of his friends take him to the nearest bar to give him a little "courage," but, after spending an hour with them, Jed decides it would be best to take a quiet little nap before approaching his loving wife, and accordingly, climbs into an empty box-car, which is soon bearing the sleeping Jed to the glorious west. Some time elapses. Judy, not having heard from her husband, has accepted an offer from a western mining camp to act as cook, and is accordingly met with due deference by the foreman. His gallantry and that of the boys is entirely lost on Judy, and she at once starts in to rule the camp with an iron rod. It is at this point that Jed, who is in the vicinity looking for work, meets the foreman and is offered a job. He meets his wife face to face when he enters for dinner, and, terror-stricken, he makes a dash for the door, overturning tables and chairs as he goes. The boys, however, soon overtake him and listen in sympathy to his explanation. Taking their lariats, they rig them up as though to hang Jed, believing it will excite the compassion of Judy, but, instead, she snatches up a whip and proceeds to wield it with all her strength until the boys succeed in roping her and getting her to the house. The next day Judy sets out, bag and baggage, with her husband in tow, bent upon returning to their little town. At the railroad station, Jed dutifully helps his wife upon the train, but just as it starts to gather speed, Jed swings off, to the glee of the waiting boys and the utter consternation of Judy. Then, lest she should return, the boys hurry him upon a horse with the advice "to keep right on a-ridin."

Lewis, an old admirer of Mary, and Joe, another miner, call for John on their way to work. Lewis makes an excuse to return to the cabin, where he is severely repulsed by Mary. Later, however, when all work is suspended at the mines where the three men are employed, Lewis and Joe set out for a prospecting trip in the mountains and Lewis insists upon John taking his money and putting it in John's strong iron chest. Mary objects, but to no avail. Two months pass. The beloved child is dangerously ill and the family on the verge of starvation. John wishes to take some of Lewis's money, but Mary pleads earnestly with him not to touch that man's gold, but get it elsewhere. John at last agrees, secretly planning to steal the money that night to provide for his wife and sick child. Going into the bedroom, he takes the cartridges from the revolver which Mary has in the drawer and, taking his rolled blankets, tells her he will return the next day and goes out to wait until night. By night the child is better, thanks to the prompt action of the doctor, but John returns masked and attempts to open the door. Mary hears him as she sits by the child's bed and getting the revolver discovers it is unloaded. She promptly loads it and gains the room in which the iron chest is kept, just as John starts for the door with the money. Mary fires and faints, but John runs out unhurt. As he hesitates whether to go to his wife or hurry away before she discovers him, Lewis and Joe, who returned that afternoon after a lucky strike and were spending the evening with their friends, hear the shot and run to the cabin, capture John and tear the mask from his face. They are dumbfounded to discover their friend. John explains the situation to them in broken sentences, and then they hasten inside to revive Mary. As John is about to tell her the truth, Lewis hastily stops him, saying, "The thief escaped, but we got the money." Then, going into the next room, Lewis puts the bag of gold on the table with a note "For Baby Nugget," and hastens away to work his claim back in the mountains.

Several months pass, and Hal Benton and Veda Mead are preparing to wed, when a letter arrives addressed to Mr. Mead from Silver Water, telling him that as he is in the east, he will do himself the honor to call upon them that evening. To Veda, who had been reading of the Indians' lives and customs after her meeting with Silver Water, the news is very terrifying. Recalling how she played with him, she fears that he may now make trouble. She goes to the veranda and sits down to think over the situation. Suddenly she sees Silver Water in full war-paint and feathers coming up the steps, he sees her and advances. Touching her upon the shoulder, he beckons her to follow. She obeys. As they reach the garden be tells her of his love, reminds her of her promises when they last met and insists upon her fulfilling them now. She cries out, and her cry brings Hal. Silver Water tells Hal why he has come for Veda, and Hal agrees that she must go with him, but Silver Water is not satisfied. He throws down his knife and insists upon Hal fighting with him for the girl. At a given signal, both men start for the knife. The Indian secures it and soon kills Hal, then, throwing his blanket over the terrified Veda, he drags her off to his camp and commands her to fetch and carry and cook his meals. Veda sinks to the ground as Silver Water stalks off, but no sooner has he gone than Morning Star slips out from her tepee and, creeping down upon Veda, raises her knife to strike the girl dead. Just as the knife descends, Veda forces herself to rise, only to find herself in Hal's arms on the veranda, for the young man has been trying to awaken her to tell his sweetheart that their Indian friend, Silver Water, has arrived, and at that moment stands beside them in the most correct evening dress. At the first glance she gives him, Silver Water realizes that it would be impossible to ever win the white girl, so leaving her with Hal, he tears up her card and returns to the blanket and Morning Star, his sweetheart, before he has learned the white man's ways.

Desperate Desmond Foiled by Claude E…

Rosamond and Claude are …
Rosamond and Claude are having a delightful time on the lake. Desperate Desmond spies them. Aided by Gomgotz and other wild men, he boards a "moving" islet and quickly succeeds in separating the lovers. While he takes Rosamond in one direction, the man-eaters drag Claude toward a large boiling pot, which is cheated of its intended victim by the miraculous appearance of some bird-hunters. The villain and the hapless heroine reach the ship in safety. Bound and gagged, Rosamond is hidden in one of the lifeboats, and Desmond proceeds to do the stowaway stunt by concealing himself in the interior of a barrel. With the aid of a powerful field glass, Claude sees the situation and rushes to the wireless station. Marconigrams flash back and forth between ship and station. Then captain and crew search for Desmond, who's hiding place is finally discovered through cigarette smoke issuing from the barrel's bung-hole. Claude and hunters join the sailors and force the villain to uncover the whereabouts of Rosamond. Reunited, the lovers are happy again. This time Desperate Desmond shall not be permitted to escape, and accordingly he is locked in a large safe and thrown overboard. The safe lands upon an immense turtle. The turtle ascends to the surface and slow but sure, makes for the penitentiary. Here, a safe-breaker, now breaking stones, opens the safe and the wicked Desmond is himself again. The villain again demonstrates that there is some good in the worst of us, by letting the safe-breaker break jail and depart with him on the turtle's back.

Desperate Desmond Almost Succeeds

Desperate Desmond wants …
Desperate Desmond wants beautiful Rosamond, and wants her at any cost. He's desperately in love with her, which fact causes him to do desperate deeds. At the psychological moment, he abducts her with the aid of two minions. Claude Eclaire, Rosamond's hero and sweetheart, manages to train the villain, and, after some thrilling adventures, saves the girl and with her bravely plunges into the sea to escape Desmond and his myrmidons. The desperate fellow, however, pauses just long enough to curse the luck and then starts in pursuit with Gomgotz and another wild man from Borneo. Despite the brave efforts of both Claude and Rosamond, the hunters gain ground, or rather, water, for the scene is laid over the briny wavelets. The fugitives soon repair to a semi-submerged, friendly house. There, from the chimney top, they bold the fort. Unable to make any headway, Desperate Desmond conceives and executes a diabolical plan. He puts a bomb in a box, lights the fuse and sends it by the water route on its errand of destruction. Luck does not relish being cursed, and smiles upon the lovers. The faucet is open and the sink running over. The box with its smoking burden tries to navigate under the sink, but the falling water holds it there and renders the bomb harmless. Claude captures the bomb, relights it and, thus armed, turns the tables on his pursuers. With his beloved Rosamond he leaves the enemy stranded and boards the ship to freedom and happiness. Desperate Desmond, defeated and crestfallen, swims back to the ship, but the anchor is as far as he can go, curse the luck!
