Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
A prospector (Tom Mix), falsely accused of murdering a deputy (Lucien Littlefield), comes across a wounded dog (Duke) who has been thrown off a train by a villainous railroad worker (George Bancroft). The clever pooch returns the kindness when the prospector is later arrested. The real killer proves to be the railroad worker and the prospector is released just in time to rescue the dog's owner (Lucy Fox) from a forest fire. The End. Tom Mix was undoubtedly the most flamboyant western star of his age (perhaps any age), but this downbeat oater was not one of his best. The best performances are those of the animal Thespians, Duke and Mix's horse Tony.
