Traveling salesman Jimmy Baxter (Hale Hamilton) is the fastest worker at his father's ammunition plant. On his way back from his latest trip, he meets a beautiful girl, Felicia Bocaz (Alice Lake) who is on her way back home to the Central American country of Santa Dinero. Luckily for Jimmy, his father has just gotten an order from Santa Dinero for several loads of ammo. The country's President (R.D. MacLean) insists that the cargo be disguised, so as to pass by potential revolutionaries unnoticed. Jimmy's idea is to cover the supplies with bottles of whiskey which he has labeled "Pep," and enter the country as a patent medicine salesman. And it's the "Pep" that saves the country -- just when the rebels are about to take over, Jimmy turns huckster and sells them the bottles. They get drunk and forget about having a revolution. The grateful president insists on giving Jimmy his daughter in marriage -- who, naturally, happens to be Felicia.
