A trapper, confident of the safety of his wife and child in the boundless woods while he is away on his trip to the trading post, a day's journey, leaves for that place to dispose of the pelts he has secured. He has just departed when an adventurous Frenchman and his guide saunter through the woods in search of game. From a distance the adventurer sees the trapper's wife place her bag of savings in its hiding place. At once his cupidity is aroused for his own purse is sadly depleted, and he is determined to get the bag of money, which purpose seems easy to accomplish. He finds, however, that the woman is made of stouter stuff than the ordinary female of the species and he not only falls but suffers for his attempted villainy.
