Storyline

Drugstore-owner and town-Mayor John Jones is made the fall guy by a trio of swindlers to persuade the townspeople to invest heavily in a fake mineral spring near the town. By accident, his youngest son discovers that the spring is just ordinary water and relays the information to his father in time to pursue the crooks as they attempt a getaway.
