Storyline

Hiram Hughes, foreman on "Pop" Lynd's ranch in Bingo Gulch, has quit his job. He has had enough of "Wild Jim," who is the pest of the ranch. In despair, Pop goes to Bingo, where he places a sign on the post office, advertising for a new foreman. "Easy" Thompson, the star performer of the "Circle Bar Ranch" show, has had enough of circus life and resigns his job. "Easy" stops at the post office and reads Pop Lynd's sign, "Foreman wanted who can handle Wild Jim." He decides to tackle the job and asks the bystanders the way to Pop's ranch. At the ranch, "Wild Jim" is having another spree and Pop has a job on his hands. He tries to make Jim go to work but is knocked down for his intervention. Jim then attempts to caress Jess. At this moment "Easy" rides in, rescues Jess and knocks the bully down. Pop, encouraged by "Easy," discharges "Wild Jim." "Easy" gets the job as foreman, and, incidentally, falls in love with Jess. A few days later, "Wild Jim" sends a note to the cowboys of Bingo ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

There is no scenery in it except the eye-full necessary to give background to the situation
12 June 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The bully made the ranch foreman quit; the owner couldn't fire him, so he advertised for a new foreman who could. "Easy" Thompson, the circus bicycle rider, looking for a job, happens along just as the bully is making trouble for the owner, whose arm is in splints, and his pretty daughter. "Easy" knocks down the bully and is made foreman. The bully vows to "get" "Easy." There's a struggle and "Easy" makes the bully ride the wheel which is some fun. It is a well laid out picture. There is no scenery in it except the eye-full necessary to give background to the situation, which is kept moving and kept clear throughout. The last scene is a pretty picture under a lover's knot of trees. - The Moving Picture World, January 6, 1912
