Broncho Billy and his pal, Carl Stockdale, are in love with Peggy Adams. The two men receive a letter from the girl to the effect that the one who reaches her first shall be her husband. Broncho and Carl cut cards to see who will go, and the former wins. On the way, Broncho Billy is shot by a half-breed who has a grudge against him. Broncho Billy immediately comes to the conclusion that Stockdale shot him, and at first is tempted to seek revenge, but decides otherwise. Broncho Billy sacrifices his love for his pal and wends his way to other parts, leaving the field clear for Stockdale.
