Bronco rides into town on a lame horse when a pretty but rural looking girl, Lucy Follett, calls out to him about his horse. Bronco informs her the horse threw a shoe after which she recommends a stable. She is obviously out to drum up business for the stable. She tries to recommend a boarding house but Bronco tells her he plans to stay in the Stockman's Hotel. She tells him where it is while asking him to mention her name to them. Her sales pitches include a place to eat and coming to his room to see if he needs laundry done. Later, as he walks down the street he passes three men before entering the stable where he spots four horses saddled with fancy outlaw rigging. Just then a fourth man knocks him out as the other three rob the bank killing a man there. At the stable they put a bandanna over Bronco's face and give him the gun used in the killing and then ride out. Deputy Roy Anders arrests Bronco against the protests of Lucy. A witness can clear Bronco but a lynch mob has Lucy ... Written by Anonymous
