Her Uncle pursues her to Lowell, and in order to escape being taken back to Mexico, Justina disguises herself as a boy scout. She joins the troops who are now in charge by Lieutenant Morgan, who happens to be in Lowell. When her Uncle discovers her disguise, he tries to force her to back to Mexico, but to his shock, he is to late as Justina is now married to Lieutenant Thomas Morgan .
