Lena Gross's sweetheart, Bob Kemp, is thrown into a sand pile by her father for daring to propose to his daughter. Bound that he shall marry Lena, Bob dresses up his big brother, Reggie, as a bad man of the west, then telephones his plans to Lena. Father is chased into a stable. The boys shoot blanks through the door until the father, believing his life is in danger, gives his consent to the marriage. Reggie is left on guard at the stable door while Bob dashes to the minister and marries Lena. Reggie exhausted falls to sleep. Father sneaks out of the stable, discovers how he has been fooled, jumps on the sleeping Reggie and gives him a sound thrashing, then starts off to look for Bob. The young couple return from the church. Father at first wants to kill Bob, but Lena's pleadings finally wins him over, and the two children receive his blessing.
