Storyline

Tom Mackley, sheriff of Coyote County, Oregon, catches Terrible Dan, a horse thief, and lodges him in jail. The prisoner, a shrewd and crafty one of experience, has neatly concealed beneath his belt a saw. During the sheriff's absence Terrible Dan is sawing the bars on the prison window. Mackley returns to the jail with his child, a girl about six years old, and gives the prisoner his meal. That afternoon Mackley receives a telegram from Bill Dennis, sheriff of White Lake County, stating that he is holding Black Bill, a noted outlaw, and to come at once and take care of him. On the way back to town Black Bill shoots Mackley's horse. The animal throws Mackley under him. The bandit escapes. During the sheriff's absence Terrible Dan saws the bars from the window. He is about to escape when the sheriff's child sees him. Taking a large revolver from a dresser drawer, the baby stands guard over the jail. Mackley is finally rescued from beneath the dead horse and carried back to town. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
