Ben Hardy, owner of the "Three 4 Ranch," receives a letter from his sister in the east, saying she is sending her little girl to visit him. Hardy is delighted and sends "Alkali" Ike to the depot to meet "the little girl" with a small burro and a doll to quiet her if she cries. "Alkali" finds her a full grown young lady, however, and is astonished when she grabs his broncho, vaults into the saddle and gallops off, leaving him to straggle back on the stubborn burro.

She masters the situation by having a horse-race, agreeing to go with the fellow that catches and takes her out of the saddle.
