Among his Christmas presents, Bobby receives a cowboy and an Indian suit and becomes inspired with the Wild West fever. He induces his young playmate, Jane, to play Indian with him. They go out to an enclosed lot which they enter by crawling through a hole underneath the fence. He then arranges a drama in which he is an Indian chief and captures her, ties her to a tree and holds her prisoner. He securely binds her and then tells her he will hold council with his tribe and decide what will he done with her. He wanders off and hearing some boys playing ball, he forgets all about Jane and joins in the game. Toward evening, he goes home. Jane's parents become anxious about her non-appearance at suppertime. They go in search of her and inquire further at Bobby's home. The boy suddenly remembers Jane's captivity. He runs to the lot and releases her. His parents are very much inclined to chastise him, but Jane's parents intercede for him and Jane herself, forgives him for his thoughtlessness.
