Bill Carmody, a likable young chap, is wasting his time in …
Bill Carmody, a likable young chap, is wasting his time in Broadway restaurants. His father loses a large amount of money because the youth forgets to deliver bonds entrusted to him. Bill quarrels with Ethel Manton, the girl he loves, and he makes up his mind to leave home and "make good" in his own way. Mistaking the bonds for a package of Ethel's letters, he puts them into his pocket and takes them with him. On the way west Bill meets D.S. Appleton, a lumber baron. The train is wrecked, and Bill, having saved Appleton's life, is taken from the wreckage unconscious and hurried to the Appleton home. Bill tells Appleton that he is looking for work, but refuses to reveal his identity. Appleton sends Bill to Buck Moncrossen's camp, believing the boy is made of the right stuff, and that the stern discipline of Moncrossen's place will bring it out. A clash of wills between Bill and Moncrossen takes place, and the big lumberman proves to have a cowardly streak in him. His hatred for Bill grows. Meantime Ethel has accepted the invitation of St. Ledger, a fortune hunter, to join his party on a cruise to Palm Beach. Ethel is accompanied by her aunt and brother, Charlie, who, loyal to Bill, loses no opportunity to balk St. Ledger's attentions to Ethel. Finally tiring of the fortune hunter, Ethel persuades her aunt to accept the invitation of Appleton to come north and inspect his lumber holdings. Moncrossen has taken a fancy to Jeanne, an Indian girl. Bill has protected her from Moncrossen, and the lumberman plans to be revenged. During the spring drive, when the logs are taken down to the mills, Bill almost loses his life when a log jam is dynamited. Hurled into the river, and believed by Moncrossen to have been drowned, he is rescued by Jeanne and taken to her tepee. While he is recovering Jeanne falls in love with him, and makes him promise that if Moncrossen ever tries to molest her again, he will come to her assistance. Then he goes farther up the river, where Appleton has another camp. Ethel, on her visit to the Appleton holdings, meets Bill. Their misunderstandings grow rather than lessen, and just when Ethel begins to realize the change that has come about in Bill, Jeanne comes into camp, telling him that Moncrossen is threatening her. Without explaining to Ethel, he goes away with Jeanne. Ethel, brokenhearted, is about to leave camp and return home, when Fallon, a friend of Bill's, tells her of the promise Bill has made to Jeanne. Moncrossen has imprisoned Jeanne's old grandmother. Bill goes to force Moncrossen to release her, and a fight, almost to the death, follows, in which the big bully's spirit is utterly broken, Bill being the victor. Jeanne wants to go to Bill after the contest is over, but her wise old grandmother will not permit it, saying that it is a divine law that the red shall not mix with the white. A complete reconciliation between Ethel and Bill follows. The father having learned the truth about the disappearance of the bonds, comes to express his joy in the regeneration of his son.

The University of Virginia is a-tingle with excitement, just before the great football game between Virginia and Hillside University. Ralph Everly and Harry Daniels are valued members of the team. Ralph is in love with Georgia, Harry's sister, and has urged her to give him her answer. She tells him he shall have it after the game. Harry has been consorting with gamblers, and they urge him to throw the game, as they are putting up money on the side of the opponents, and the betting is heavy on the home team. Just as the game begins, they send a note to Harry, on the field, offering him a thousand dollars to throw the game. By a mistake Ralph gets the note, but does not read it, as the whistle is sounded for the game to begin. The first half is played, and Virginia is victorious, the score being 3 to 0. Between the halves Harry managed to get the note from Ralph's helmet. He makes a fumble at a critical moment, and Virginia loses the game, the final score standing 7 to 3. The bystanders accuse Harry, but Ralph, for the sake of Georgia, takes the blame on his own shoulders, and says the note was sent to him. Harry is too weak to tell the truth and accept the scorn he deserves. Ralph, thinking that Georgia will believe in him, goes for her answer, but it is a scathing "No!" He continues his senior year and graduates with the undeserved contempt of all his classmates. Ralph goes to New York and becomes a member of the bar. His legal triumphs excite so much attention that he is invited by the District Attorney of his home town to be his assistant. His first case turns out to be the prosecution of Harry Daniels, who has never forsaken his dishonest ways and associates, and has stolen from the bank in which he is employed. Ralph proves him guilty, and Harry serves a sentence in prison. Coming out, he is determined to be revenged on Ralph. Georgia discovers his intention, and goes to warn Ralph. It is the first time the two have met face to face since the day of the game. Even while she is warning him, Harry comes to attempt his life, and Ralph denounces him, for the first time telling Georgia the truth about the football game. He shows his magnanimity by giving Harry a chance to redeem himself. Young Daniels leaves to begin life over again under happier conditions, and Ralph and Georgia take up their Virginia romance where they had left it so long ago.

On the same train that he takes for the wilds, is Dick Mason, whose father owns the ranch, but who is unknown and has never been west. The cowboys who are hilarious and likewise impetuous over the arrival of the new knight of the kitchen, go to the train and lay violent hands on young Mason, as a candidate for the third degree, while the ranchman's daughter meets Dishwash Dick, and mistaking him for their guest, drives him home in her runabout, and he is installed in state as the honored visitor. In the interim, Dick Mason is whirled about so fast that he has no time to explain his real status and has one awful time, between the perils of the kitchen and the trials and tribulations that the mischievous cowboys put upon him. The ranch people are stirred to their uttermost depths by the presence of cattle rustlers, and everybody rushes to the saddle to scour the range and bring the bad men to grass. This brings out the true colors of Dishwash Dick as a coward and poltroon and he is glad to let his horse run away toward the railway, while Dick Mason develops unexpected trepidation which wins him the esteem and regard of the cowboys; in fact, he settles several of the most truculent with neatness and dispatch that commands the highest regard of all.

The Cattle Thief's Escape

John Morrison, educated …
John Morrison, educated for the ministry, is all the true stature of a real man. He goes west to preach the gospel in the cattle country. He likes the men, the cowboys and the country, and at the same time he has a hankering for the fair sex; in fact, he falls in love with Rose Craig, the daughter of a ranchman. This last move is not so highly relished by the male members of his congregation, as girls in that section are really rarer, and he, picking the choice, consequently wins the enmity of many men, who felt they had the right of prior claim. A bunch of disappointed suitors plan to thrash the successful preacher, but much to their astonishment, he trounces the entire crowd. The cowards sneak off ingloriously, but one plans to "fix" the stigma of "cattle-rustler" upon him. However, the real cattle thief is discovered just in time and "with the goods." Again the parson takes the initiative and persuades the revengeful parties that having recovered their property, they can afford to allow the thief a minute's leeway to get out of sight. The rustler takes advantage of the situation to drop over a cliff, and the parson is reinstated as the master of the situation.

Brothers Ben and John are in love with the same girl, Sadie. Sadie is not the least fussed, rejects Ben's offer of marriage, but accepts the proposal of brother John. Ben, disgusted and disappointed, quarrels with the lucky man and then leaves for the west. John and Sadie marry and experience three years of happiness, when death snatches him from her arms and leaves her penniless, with a baby at her breast. She is so poor that she is forced to take in washing. During this interim, Ben has had varying fortunes in the wilds. He saves an Indian from the hands of vigilantes about to lynch him for horse-thievery. After stirring adventures they make a getaway. The Indian is shot, but under the skilled nursing of Ben, eventually recovers. The Aborigine is so grateful that he reveals to Ben the site of a rich placer mine and the latter washes out a fortune. He goes back to the old town, a sadder but a wealthy man, with forgiveness in his heart. He finds his sister-in-law bending over a wash-tub as her chubby infant wails an accompaniment from the floor. These things move honest Ben mightily, and he wonders if the days of might-have-been cannot come back. He speaks to her in the old voice, woos her with the old words. She listens to his suit as he persuades her that he should take his brother's place and provide a father for the helpless. So all's well that ends well.

The Law and the Outlaw

Dakota Wilson escapes …
Dakota Wilson escapes from the Deer Lodge Penitentiary, and, after a period of quietness, secures a position on the Diamond S ranch, owned by Buffalo Watson. Ruth, the daughter of the ranch owner, one day sees Dakota's display of horsemanship, and the admiration thus aroused soon ripens into love, much against the protest of the family. Ruth's love for Dakota is increased by his heroic deed when he rescues her from the malignant attentions of a rushing steer whose anger is aroused by the flowing red handkerchief about her neck. Dakota, who is riding ahead of the cowboys on a round-up expedition, catches sight of the steer heading for Ruth, and, spurring his broncho into a break-neck speed, reaches the side of the steer, leaps upon its hack, and, fastening his muscular arms on the frenzied beast's horns, brings him to the ground. In the midst of the ovation given him by the cowboys, Dakota is nabbed by Sheriff Mathers, who begins to march him back to the Deer Lodge Penitentiary. As the sheriff, his deputies and his captive are riding along a narrow mountain roadway, Dakota makes a daring leap down the precipitous incline, rolling down until he reaches the bottom, where he hides behind a projecting rock. The sheriff, in the meantime, has taken the long way down and follows for a distance, until he discovers the still form of Dakota behind the sheltering rock, and, thinking him dead, rides away. Though free, Dakota is handicapped by the manacles. He manages to steal the gun and horse belonging to a sleeping shepherd, and by holding the gun between his knees, and placing the connecting chain of the manacles in front of the gun, he pulls with his teeth the strap which he has fastened to the trigger of the gun, thereby severing the connecting links. As he starts to ride away he is observed by a distant rifleman, who, by the aid of binoculars, sees the dangling steel wristlets, proving that he is an outlaw. He fires and Dakota tails from his horse with a head wound. But his left foot gets caught in the stirrup and he is dragged for a long distance with bullets flying around him. His foot eventually gets loose and he is left unconscious on the ground. When he regains consciousness, he finds himself again in the hands of the law, and just before he is about to be incarcerated he marries Ruth Watson, who bravely sobs as he is led away: "Good bye, my man, when you come back, I'll be waiting."

Wesley Judell, as a …
Wesley Judell, as a missionary, finds a futile but puzzling field for work in the far, wild west. In the temporal rush and struggle for existence, spiritual affairs are not as deeply pondered as he would wish, and life seems cheap and feverish. He has a wide territory to cover in his parish rounds, and in his absence his comely daughter, Winona, looks after the shack which serves for a parsonage. She converts Kill Kullen, who has wandered from the straight and narrow path, but despite this dereliction, he is the straightest shot in that section. The young people fall in love with each other, and the firm, fearless, yet gentle Winona succeeds in thoroughly reforming the redoubtable Kill Kullen. The missionary objects to this marriage, but she persists. She gives him spiritual advice, while he, in return, instructs her in riding and shooting. By following the up-lift plan, he secures a good position, and is a useful member of the community. Her good old father in time relents and consents, so all ends well, through the interchange of religion and gun practice.

Samantha Roundtree, a seasoned old suffragette, comes to a western town to lecture on "Votes for Women." While she is engaged in this form of enlightenment in the public square, Waggy Bill and his cowboy friends ride up and decide to have some fun with the feminine. They ride to a curio shop and costume store and rent a lot of wigs and Indian costumes. After rigging and painting up they pounce upon Miss Roundtree and carry her off to the mountain. They tie her to a tree and pile brush about her as if to make a funeral baked feast. Waggy Bill, the leader of this deviltry, slips down to the stream, washes up, comes back on the scene "propria persona," and empties blank cartridges on the crowd with such effect that he decimates the Indians and rescues Samantha. She is something more than grateful to her hero and clings to Waggy Bill like a leech. She gets him to town, and having gotten a man, forgets all about votes for women. The cowboy-Indians return and rescue Waggy Bill from the fervent embraces of the frightened Samantha.

A story dealing with a band of outlaws that are holding the sheriff's niece a prisoner to insure their own safety. The sheriff sends for the girl's sweetheart, a Texas Ranger, to come on and help him find her. The ranger first creates for himself a reputation as a bandit, and when he arrives is welcomed to the outlaw camp as one of their own kind. He locates the girl, and through a bit of strategy, manages to make the outlaw chief a prisoner. With the aid of his horse, he then sets about getting the girl out of her prison. The outlaw camp is so situated that to enter by force is an impossibility. The ranger, however, goes to the top of an overhanging cliff, makes his rope fast to the saddle, and lowers himself into the gulch. By taking big chances he gets the girl out, and the horse, as he feels the tugging at the rope, pulls them to the top in safety. They are pursued by the outlaws, and are hard pressed, but the ranger will not give up his prisoner. He sends the girl after assistance, and holds the band off until the posse arrive. Then he turns the chief over to the sheriff, goes to the girl and claims his reward.

This film is a story dealing with the line riders of the northwest. The line riders are a body of men whose duties are similar to those of the famous Texas Rangers along the Mexican line. Their range is the wildest portion of the great northwest country and they ride the imaginary line that separates the United States from the Dominion of Canada. In the discharge of their duties they are brought into active contact with the most desperate criminals. The particular incident upon which this story is based, deals with opium smuggling, and shows how Captain Bob MacDonald, after having run the smugglers down, falls a victim to a carefully laid plot to put him out of the way. He is accused by one of his captives of having deliberately murdered his partner. Kitty Wells, a young homesteader, whom Bob is deeply interested in, sends for him with the intention of turning him over to the Canadian authorities. Bob comes to her and she relieves him of his gun. She, however, is convinced that Bob is not a cowardly murderer when he shows her the wounds that he had received in the gunfight. As she is about to return his gun, one of the smugglers who had escaped and had been following Bob, enters the room and tries to kill him. After a desperate struggle, Bob manages to disarm and arrest him. After a series of peculiar circumstances they discover that the evidence against Bob had been trumped up by the dead smuggler.
