Bob Fleming (Western star Tom Mix) isn't having a whole lot of luck until he shoots through three gold coins while showing off for his sweetheart Betty Reed (Margaret Loomis) and her father (Frank Whitson). He keeps the coins, and as charms they apparently work after a group of promoters come to the township of Four Corners and "salt" Fleming's property. They try to sell fake oil stock to the Four Corners inhabitants, but their plan is foiled because it turns out that there really is oil on Fleming's land. Somewhere in the midst of this static-sounding story, Mix manages to throw in his usual stuntwork -- some fine lariat-twirling and sharp horsemanship.
