Storyline

Steve, a cowpuncher, and the sheriff's daughter are sweethearts. The sheriff objects to the match and, catching the young couple at the trysting place, reprimands his daughter and admonishes Steve to cease his attentions.

At the same time the sheriff comes home to dinner and is amazed to find his daughter playing the role of a Juliet in the arms of Steve. The girl shows her father the ring. The sheriff returns it to Steve with his compliments. Steve registers an objection, whereupon the sheriff throws Steve out of doors. He returns to the ranch a downcast cowpuncher. He tells his troubles to the rest of the cowpunchers, who find more humor than pathos in the tale. After thinking matters over he decides to elope with the girl.

The cast is adequate
21 September 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An ordinary western melodrama in which a sheriff objects to bis daughter marrying her cowboy sweetheart, and in which the cowboy wins favor by rescuing the girl from desperadoes. Several incidents in the story are made effective, settings are attractive and the cast is adequate with Velma Whitman, Melvin Mayo, Ray Gallagher and George Routh in the principal parts. - The Moving Picture World, February 27, 1915
