Storyline

Drifting into Coyote County, Broncho Billy, an outlaw, sizes up the town saloon and gambling tables, finds nothing of interest and is only put on the alert when the incoming stage pulls up before the little general store and a strong-box of express money is carried in. Broncho watches keenly and returns to the saloon with a grim smile playing over his ruddy face. Next morning the storekeeper makes the startling discovery that the express guard is bound hand and foot and the money is gone. Meanwhile, at the edge of town, Broncho sorts over the stolen loot and rides on. A few hours later he comes upon a covered "prairie schooner" driven by Vedah Barclay, a pretty girl, and finds she is taking her sick mother back home to a little town across the desert. Broncho is able to aid Vedah in preparing a fire, and is making some coffee when he suddenly discovers the approach of the sheriff's posse.

The story is nearly always freshly conceived and interesting
15 January 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

One of the most notable things about these Broncho Billy pictures is the fertility of their writer. The same characters appear in nearly all, but the story is nearly always freshly conceived and interesting. In this number Broncho Billy, to save the girl with whom he had fallen in love and who had contracted the fever, takes, not the express box nor the mail bag, as had been his custom, but the stage itself. He left the stage's crew and passengers by the wayside because he needed the stage to carry his girl to the doctor's. It was his last hold-up. The posse got him and a shot from the sheriff compelled him to cash in. It has the too often noticed sentimental ending, made for the gallery. - The Moving Picture World, August 24, 1912
