For a change Jim Hardie is off work enjoying a game of poker when he is dealt a hand of four aces. Before play can start, pretty Pearl Watkins enters the saloon demanding to talk to Jim immediately. He is forced to pass on the hand to listen to her privately. Her brother Ira has arrived back in town and is asleep at her house. She is worried he is turning into an outlaw although she does not know what he has been up to. Wells Fargo has no interest in him so Jim volunteers to talk to him. He finds him asleep on a bed so he awakens him with a distraction as Ira awakens shooting. It is apparent Jim has no influence on him and his sister says their mother spoiled him. Before long Ira with the other five members of the Bill Tobey gang hit the Wells Fargo bank in Clarksville. Jim is now after the gang but is captured by Ira. The gang leaves him alive but stranded and tied up.
