Storyline

Ben Gleason, the old sheriff, whose gun was decorated with seven notches, was replaced by a younger man, Clem McCarten. The old sheriff is forced to go to his granddaughter's home to live, where he is welcomed by her. Clem goes to call on the old man often and Maud's husband mistakes his purpose and is jealous. Some time later Clem is wounded and taken to Maud's home, where she proceeds to dress his wounds. The old sheriff gets out to capture the outlaw that shot Clem and manages to kill him. He discovers that he has shot Maud's husband. The old sheriff returns to the house, and, being too weak to perform the task, he asks Clem to cut the last notch on the gun for him. When this has been done the old man sinks to his last rest and Maud seeks shelter in Clem's arms. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
