The action in this farce/Western begins right away, with Jim Page (William Russell) battling it out against some thieves. Unfortunately, this bit of heroism makes him late for his wedding, so he is disowned by his fiancée Muriel (Francelia Billington) and her father, Frank Manning (Harvey Clark). So Jim decides to head out for Arizona, but once he gets there, he is mistaken for outlaw Pete Rawley and thrown in the local jail. The bandit's sweetheart helps him escape, and the ensuing chase involves the sheriff, his posse, the real bandit, Muriel, and her father. Before things get resolved, William Russell -- a favorite star in the 1910s when it came to action -- gets to display his skills as a horseman, a fighter, and a comedian.
