The Mantle of Red Evans (1912)
- Summaries (1)
May Evans, an orphan girl, is advised by her uncle to leave a lonely ranch where she has been living, come to the settlement and take charge of a hotel. She concludes to take advantage of the offer and immediately demonstrates her fitness for the position, making the hotel one of the most popular in that section. Bob Evans, a young man from the east, who has gone west to pick up his fortune, happens to meet the young woman as she is going to the hotel. This begins an acquaintanceship, which ripens into affection on the part of both, he rescuing her from a very perilous situation, for which she feels duly grateful. Bob Evans comes into hard luck, needs food and drink. He tries to work his face on the flinty-hearted barkeeper, but as that does not work he thinks of a famous gun man named Red Evans and writes his name, passing it to the barkeeper, who immediately gives him all the food and drink he needs. He registers on the hotel book: Bob Evans, still being out of funds and hoping to perpetuate his popularity. When May sees this name she freezes up and orders him out of the house. Another notorious character turns up with the same name, but the terror is minimized when the nervy woman declares that it was the name of her dead father. She subsequently forgives Bob and concludes to take his name for life.
