Storyline

Helen's father desires her to marry Arthur, an eastern man. She agrees to the arrangement but asks that her father allow her to accept Uncle Charley's invitation to visit him on his ranch. Helen's father consents and in two weeks we find Helen on the ranch being taught to ride by Jack, one of her uncle's cowboys. A month later Arthur arrives on the scene, but his snobbish ways are not appreciated by the cowboys, and Helen soon discovers she is far more in love with Jack than with Arthur, to whom she is engaged. Arthur readily sees his chances are extremely slim, and he starts to force matters by urging Helen to consent to an immediate marriage. The boys on the ranch fix up a scheme to play a joke on Arthur and help Jack and Helen to elope and get married. How this scheme succeeds is cleverly portrayed in this Western comedy.
