To spite her domineering father, Eastern girl Lucy Fox pursues an unsuitable suitor to a small Western hamlet where she obtains a job as a manicurist. A local rancher (Buck Jones), who has fallen for the girl, does his best to persuade her not too marry the bounder. She is determined, however, and leaves town with the man. The rancher, in a final heroic gesture, leaps from his horse to the speeding train and declares his undying love for the girl, who finally accepts. More a romantic comedy than a true western, this silent film's only interesting aspect is the name of the unsuitable suitor: "John Wayne"!
