Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Pushed off the edge of the quarry in chapter seven of the serial Lightning Bryce, Lightning (Jack Hoxie) manages to grab hold of a rope and is safe. Powder Solvang (Paul Hurst), meanwhile, has captured Kate Arnold (Ann Little), who stubbornly refuses to reveal the whereabouts of both Bowie knife and string. To make her talk, Solvang brings her to the top of the quarry and lowers her into the abyss on a rope. Climbing up from the bottom, Lightning manages to free the petrified girl but their subsequent escape sets off an avalanche.
