Story Summary:

Edith Howard is in love with Jack Evans, foreman of her father's ranch, but her affections are not returned. Jim Dawson is also another suitor for Edith's hand.

When Edith's sister Clara, returns form boarding school, Jack Evans becomes smitten by her charms and they eventually are engaged. Clara's father objects.

Jim Dawson, in self defense, shoots Mr. Howard, when he asks for Edith's hand. Hearing the shot, Jack (who has been conversing with Edith, in a nearby room), rushes to the scene and is caught there by Dick Howard, the sheriff, and son of the dead man. He places Jack in jail. As Dick is consoling his sister, he drops the prison keys, which are picked up by Clara, who rushes to the jail and liberates Jack, substituting herself in his place. Jim Dawson, having escaped, returns to the jail with a gang of cowpunchers, bent upon hanging Jack. They arrive just as Jack is making his escape. A chase is given, Jack is captured, thrown from a railroad viaduct and is later found lying on the tracks by the sheriff. Edith confesses her duplicity, a reconciliation follows and Jack is allowed his freedom.
