Storyline

Bill Smith, a cowpuncher, is in love with Nell Parsons, daughter of Jon Parsons, a gruff old rancher. Bill wins Nell as far as she is concerned, but he must first ask father. When Bill broaches the subject to the old man, the father kicks him off the premises. All subsequent meetings are frustrated. Finally Bill decides to enlist the aid of two inseparable comrades, have them mask themselves, waylay the old gentleman on his way to town, and after giving him a good scare, Bill will jump up and rescue him. The scheme works. Dad is won over, and agrees to the marriage, notwithstanding the fact that the two cowpunchers unwittingly lay bare the secret to their success. Written by Billboard synopsis
