Storyline

Pretty Letty King is the tomboy on Bar Z ranch. She fills the washing pans full of salt and when the boys come in from the corral at noon to wash, an awful time follows when they get their eyes and noses full of the smarting substance. Then Letty ties a lariat to the tablecloth, attaches the other end to a moving buggy and the boys' dinner is deposited on the floor. One morning, in the town store Letty meets Arthur Springer, an easterner, and the bond of affection springs up between them. Letty is also loved by Jim Dunn, a cowboy, and it goes hard with him when Letty returns his ring and announces her engagement to Springer. Two months later the stage drives up and Springer prepares to depart to the city with Letty to be married. The assembled cowboys give them a cheery departure, and Dunn watches the stage disappear down the long trail with dull agony written on his brown face. About this time Bob Blake, county sheriff, receives a notice from the Chief of Police of Cheyenne advising ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Virginia True Boardman -- she and Elinor Fair had the best names for silent actresses -- may amuse herself by putting salt in the wash bowls and hitching the lunch table to the wagon as it leaves for town, but when she is about to marry the wrong man, the boys at the ranch pitch in to make sure things turn out right.

Besides the straight westerns that Broncho Billy Anderson starred in, he also directed a lot of comedies. HIs company, Essanay, had several series of them, often on a western theme. This one is an amusing one.

Of note is the fact that Roland Totheroh has a small role in this. The next year he would make his debut as a cinematographer, and a couple of years later, he would take on the task of shooting movies for Charlie Chaplin when that comic moved to Essanay for a year. Their association would continue for more than a third of a century.
