Anne Kepple marries Jefferson Hunter, a man twice her age, after he has forced a loan shark to give her back a mining claim that belonged to her dead father. The claim adjoins Jefferson's mine "The Howling Coyote," which he renames "The Silver Girl" in his wife's honor. Their marriage is a happy one until lawyer Nathan Hargrave arrives and plants thoughts of New York life in Anne's head. Anne persuades Jefferson to go East and they have an enjoyable time until Jefferson discovers that Hargrave is trying to steal Anne away. Believing his wife no longer loves him, Jefferson tries to force Hargrave to kill him in a duel, but Hargrave does not shoot straight due to nervousness. Jefferson returns home to Nevada and resumes his work with his former partner "Chick" Wilson. Anne finally goes home one day after realizing the true worth of her husband. Written by
