Storyline

Under Pete's Smith's narration, this one-reeler tells the story of the training of three new recruits in the Canadian Northwest Mounted. When they tire of the repetitive routine, a superior officer tells them the story of another Northwest Mounted Policeman. The story shows the chase and capture of a killer by the policeman, with the respect he commanded causing an Indian tribe to return his dead body back to the post and also turning over the killer he tracked down, only to lose his life to disease while helping the tribe fight the same malady that killed him. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
