Plot

As described in a film magazine, Hugo Ennis (Holding), a man's man, refuses to capitulate to the wooing of Sophy McGurn (Barker), the postmistress, which arouses her resentment. She puts an advertisement in a matrimonial newspaper and answers the replies in his name. This causes little Madge Nelson (Frederick) of Omaha, Nebraska, to come to the little town. Her recent illness has left her penniless and friendless. She goes to Ennis' cabin. Ennis returns, thinks he smells a blackmailing scheme, and during the argument that follows is shot by Madge. Madge summons a doctor and saves the life of Ennis. Sophy leads a delegation of the town's women to drive Madge out of the community. Ennis recovers consciousness and, discovering that he loves Madge, persuades her to stay. He outwits the designing Sophy and marries Madge.
