Storyline

That two brothers may pursue widely different walks in life, and still plead guilty to the same emotion in regard to a very pretty young lady, is proven in this film. It falls to the lot of Jim Orr, the county sheriff, to arrest a band of notorious cattle rustlers. He learns that his brother Dan is a member of the band. Not only does the call of the blood make a strong appeal to Jim, but he is of the opinion that the girl he loves is in love with his brother, and for that reason he resigns his office and allows Dan to escape. Jim's sacrifice has its own reward, for as Dan is departing he thrusts a note into Jim's hand and rides rapidly away. The note is from the girl, and in it she informed Dan that his brother, the sheriff, is the man she loves. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
