Storyline

A poor ranchman fondly kisses his wife and family good-bye. He steps out of his home and is attacked by a bitter enemy. A terrible struggle ensues. The sheriff, who happens to be nearby with two of his deputies, separates the men and takes them to jail. The ranchman attempts to escape and is killed by a bullet from the deputy's gun. The following day the ranchman's youngest daughter goes to the Sheriff's office and tells him that her mamma is dying and wants to see him. He hurries to the shack and promises the poor woman he will care for her little ones always. After her death he bravely attempts to bring up his small family, but is about to give up in despair when he meets the town schoolmarm. This is the beginning of a romance that results in her agreeing to aid him with his family troubles, and a quiet wedding takes place. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
