Although Billy Fortune (Will Rogers) has a hankering for Hope Beecher (Irene Rich), he acknowledges that her suitor, Ben Morgan (Wade Boteler) is the better man for her. Ben is the doctor of the Western town in which they all live, and to Hope's dismay, he loves his liquor a bit too much. A temperance society is successful in outlawing alcohol in the town, but Billy keeps the saloon in the black by hiring a bevy of beauties to dole out alcohol-free potables. When there is a mine explosion, Billy encourages Ben to prove himself to the dubious Hope by going up there with his black bag. Ben saves a number of lives, and Hope finally accepts his marriage proposal. Billy, meanwhile, optimistically figures that she's not the only girl he'll ever love. The story (adapted from a novel by William R. Lighton) gave former Zigfield Follies star Will Rogers a chance to show off some stunts, including a wild ride on a bronco.
