John Wheeler (Warren Cook) gets himself in some financial hot water and needs to prove that he is half owner of some land in Canada. But the only person with a copy of the deed is Jean Corteau (Edwin Carewe, who also directed), and Corteau has gone up to the property and decided to claim all of it for himself. In lieu of the money owed him, Bruce Mitchell (James Cruze) tells Wheeler that he will accept the hand of his daughter Lois (Mabel Taliaferro) in marriage. Lois can't stand Mitchell, so she disguises herself as a boy and makes her way to Corteau. Corteau eventually wises up to the fact that Lois is a girl, and Lois explains her dilemma. At this juncture, Wheeler and Mitchell, who have been searching for Lois, arrive at Corteau's cabin. There is a fierce battle in which Mitchell stabs Corteau and Corteau mortally wounds Mitchell. Corteau recovers from his injuries and marries Lois, with whom he has fallen in love.
