Storyline

Big Bill was down on his luck, and his family was starving. He rushed into the saloon where a game was in progress, and grabbed what money he could lay his hands on. He takes it to his wife, and then tried to make his escape. The sheriff and the boys pursued and caught him. He accepted his fate, but when the boys saw the pitiful condition of his family, they relented, and decided to let him go. They even took up a subscription for his wife, sending her the money with a note to say that they had given Bill a chance to make good. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
