A station agent's daughter has two lovers. The first is a villainous telegraph operator; the second is a poor but honest switchman. The girl is torn between her two loves. A telegram conveys the information that a shipment of gold has been consigned to the station presided over by the father of the station agent's daughter. The villainous telegraph operator learns of it and thinks up a summons plot. He summons to his assistance a highly unsuccessful crook who has just been released from prison, and, with a pair of assistant crooks, the gang is complete. The station agent, a simple-minded old person, is bound to a chair and the crooks take refuge behind him, so that when the door of the safe is blown off he may protect them from it. He does. At that moment his daughter enters, but the crooks flee with the gold. Then begins a chase. The crooks on a handcar are pursued by the sheriff's posse on a locomotive, the police force in a launch, the switchman in an automobile and the station agent's daughter on a motorcycle. One must see the picture to know bow it ends; the action is too swift for description.

This film concerns the adventures of Gussle, played by Sydney Chaplin, in Big Bear Lake area of California. The picture opens with our hero riding a mule through a creek bed, when he is set upon by some robbers. Gussle outsmarts them by attempting to hand over his goods by stretching across the stream, but dropping the goods into the water thereby making the robber also fall in. He makes his way to an inn and recounts his experiences to the other guests and then they all go out and spend time playing in the snow. Some trick photography is used to make it appear that Gussle is making a mule walk backwards.
