Storyline

Big Hearted Jim, the sheriff, loves the tomboyish Nugget Nell ( Dorothy Gish ), who runs a hash house in the mining country, but although she has romantic feelings, they are not aroused by Jim. Nell agrees to an old miner friend's request to care for his "child," Nell is shocked to meet the six-foot girl, but she cares for her just the same. Nell falls in love with the City Chap, out West to look after his mining property, but he barely notices her, having become intrigued by the Ingenue, whom he met on the stagecoach. The jealous Nell steals stylish clothes to allure him, but she has trouble walking in French high-heels. After rescuing the City Chap from outlaws robbing the stage, Nell takes him to a deserted shack. Although the outlaws kidnap the "child" and set fire to the shack, Jim, lassoing them one-by-one, rescues Nell, who, having seen the City Chap's cowardice, now yields to Jim's embrace.
