Lonely waif Muggsy Mulane ( Mae Murray ), who wears boy's clothing, jumps a freight train to the country after Jimmy ( Lydia Knott ) "the Eel," the leader of the gang of crooks with whom she works, is arrested. Two days later, the train stops near the little village of Cottonville, Mugsy is spotted by the brakeman who chases her, but she manages to escape. She leans against a sign-post that reads, "Danger--Go Slow!" Heeding the sign's advice, she wanders into the town of Cottonville, where she comes to the home of Aunt Sarah ( Lydia Knott ), whom she later discovers is Jimmy's mother. When Muggsy learns that the greedy Judge Cotton ( Joseph Girard ), who holds the mortgage on Aunt Sarah's property, is planning to foreclose, she threatens to blackmail him, and he relents. Next, Muggsy sells a part of Aunt Sarah's property for far more than it is worth, and finally convinces Jimmy to come home to his mother and live the straight life and Jimmy takes Mugsy in his arms and they decide to settle down in Cottonville.
This 1918 comedy/drama was produced by the Universal Film Manufacturing Company, starring silent screen actress, Mae Murray. Sadly it now remains a lost silent film.
