Storyline

George Fowler, after a severe illness, dies, leaving his wife, Sarah, and baby. Sometime after, things have gone from bad to worse with Sarah, and finding herself unable to support her baby, consigns it, in a note which she writes, to the one who finds it, and places it in a saddle outside a mess house for cowboys. Jack Norton, returning from the range late, hears the baby's cry, and forthwith takes it home with him, to the horror and consternation of his cowboy friends. They spend a sleepless night and spend the following day buying toys and presents for their collective "protégé." Jack, however, soon realizes he must have a "mother" for his baby and immediately starts to the village to inquire where he can procure one. In the meantime, Sarah has applied for and obtained a position as school teacher, and she arrives in the village just as Jack does. With them, it is a case of love at first sight and when Jack has had an introduction, he tells her of his "child" and asks for her help.... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
