Young prospector Hod Mason (Herbert Rawlinson) decides to call it quits when land promoter Marco (Neal Hart) offers to purchase his claim for a ridiculously low sum. Upon learning that he's been cheated by Marco, Mason chases after the crook, catching up with him in a small Midwestern town. Wasting no time, Marco has already convinced several gullible locals to invest in a phony mine. Among his victims is the mother of Holly Brandon (Sally Starr), with whom Mason has fallen in love. Ever conniving, Marco manages to arrange a forced marriage with Holly -- a perfect set-up for the sort of last-minute "race to the rescue" that was par for the course in the films of Herbert Rawlinson).
