Storyline

Shorty's services are enlisted for the government in connection with Kane, a secret service agent, through the ranchman's interest in Anita Keller, who has been detailed on the mail robberies and knowing something of the gang responsible for most of the robberies, is enabled to aid her and Kane in running them to earth. The leaders and backers of the gang are powerful politically as well as desperate men. Anita is captured by the gang and immured in an insane asylum. Shorty and Kane bore through a stone wall with parts of an iron bedstead and rescue Anita just as Jim Baxter, head of the gang, has arranged to have her removed to a still more secure hiding place. Baxter and his gang are caught red-handed and are locked up to await trial. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
