  • Frontier life was hazardous. Affording, as it did, a safe retreat for criminals of all countries, the honest pioneers were compelled to punish crimes summarily in order to check the recklessness of the desperadoes with which the west was infested. Slight circumstances oft times sent a man to his doom, and in this swift meeting of justice the innocent frequently suffered. This playlet shows the narrow escape of a man and woman from the avenging hands of cowboys who thought them guilty. Two cowboys who have imbibed freely and unwisely, meet a pretty little Indian girl fishing. Bob tries to kiss her while Jack looks on and laughs. The girl struggles with Bob and becoming alarmed at his boisterous attentions strikes him with a large stick. As he falls unconscious to the ground Jack rushes toward her but she holds him at bay with the club. At this moment the girl's Indian sweetheart arrives on the scene and leaps upon the white man who draws a knife. A terrific struggle ensues and the Indian forces the knife against the cowboy, who falls to the ground. The Indians make their escape and Jack staggers to the bar room where a crowd of the boys are, and wildly tells them that Bob is killed and he wounded. The Indians are captured and thrown in jail, but the red man overcomes the jailer, releases the girl and together they flee again. Overtaken once more, the boys are about to deal summarily with their captives when Bob and Jack come up and manfully admit the fault was their own. The lovers are released. Jack holds his wounded arm. Bob rubs his sore head and the vanquished jailer his sore throat, amid the laughs of the crowd.
