  • Luther Caldwell , a New York millionaire, encourages Cliff Redfern, the foreman of his Montana ranch, to take his twenty-four-year-old son Ned out West to cure Ned's boredom which led him to announce that he wants to die. Caldwell's daughter Prudence, who thinks that Redfern is uncouth, helps Ned avoid him, but after Redfern enters a fashionable restaurant, lassoes Ned, and drags him to a train, Prudence and her father follow. While Redfern reads a book on etiquette to polish his manners, Ned, excited by Redfern's stories, emerges from his sadness. For Ned's benefit, Redfern wires McCann on the ranch to stage a fake cattle rustling scene when they arrive, but McCann uses the opportunity to steal the herd and blame Redfern. When Prudence denounces Redfern, he pulls her onto his horse and rides off to trail the thieves. After McCann is caught and confesses, Redfern ropes Prudence from the platform of a train bound for New York, and they marry.
