Although (falsely) accused of robbery and murder, Tom Bailey (Fred Thomson) is nevertheless granted amnesty for one day in order to ride in the rodeo and judge a baby pageant. The winner of the contest (Mary Louise Miller) is the brother of Esther Lacy (Helen Foster), whose stepfather, Hartigan (Harry Woods), is the actual killer. Eluding the law, Tom goes in search of the villain -- who, at one point, almost has the baby killed by an runaway train meant to maim Tom -- before the inevitable happy ending. Baby Mary Louise Miller (later to be seen as one of Mary Pickford's Sparrows (1926)) almost steals this pleasant western which, according to Moving Picture World, was "As good an action picture as money can buy."
