Kate Carewe (Alma Rubens) lords over the dancehall in a lawless gold rush town. When preacher Ralph Bowen (Albert Roscoe) shows up, no one is thrilled to see him, especially Kate. Bowen doesn't just preach -- he also uses his fists. The bad man of the town, Three Card Duncan (Lon Chaney), shoots and kills the saloon keeper. Kate, incensed by his actions, challenges him to a card game and wins the saloon from him. About this time, a plague breaks out in the town and all the villagers flee for the hills. Kate has been gradually warming up to Bowen and they have been caring for two orphan children. The four of them are the only ones left in the town. Bowen's heroic behavior finally wins Kate's heart and she joins him in his cause.
