Storyline

Ranchman Landers, owner of the Three Bar Ranch, sends his son, Dick, and Shorty, a friend, to town for money for the payroll. A gambler, with his sweetheart, Madge, sees Dick enter the bank; he waits outside. Shorty leaves Dick for a few minutes to go to the shoemaker. Madge approaches Dick and bumps into him as he is reading a letter. She apologizes and immediately begins to encourage an acquaintance. Dick invites her to have a bottle of beer and also into the dance hall for a dance. Madge tells Dick that the gambler will not allow women to gamble at his table, and asks him to bet some money for her. He loses and before he is aware of it he has bet the payroll. Shorty, in order to get the money back, gets a bottle of whiskey, follows the gambler to his room, and at the point of a revolver makes the gambler drink the whole bottle. Shorty puts him on a burro and turns the burro loose. Dick's father and the cowboys, who have become worried over their non-appearance, find Shorty and Dick...

Very thrilling in places
30 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

It takes two reels of film to illustrate how Shorty and his pard started with the pay-roll, for the ranch owner, and how the pard gambled it away and how Shorty by strategy and nerve recovered it and saved his pard. Very thrilling in places. - The Moving Picture World, May 9, 1914
