Synopsis / Plot
In this comical western, a curmudgeonly fur-trapper is hurt by an enraged bear and must send his nephew to town with his pelts so he can get much-needed supplies. En route, the young man passes a covered wagon and convinces the man who lives there to allow his daughter to travel with him. The two innocent mountain youths then make their way to the town. It is the first time for either of them. There they meet the sheriff who controls the town. As soon as the previously rag-tag girl has bathed and donned a pretty dress, the sheriff is attracted to her. He gets her a job in a "dance hall." The naive nephew thanks the sheriff for being so kind. He then falls in love with the dance-hall madam. Fortunately, a truly kind storekeeper removes the innocent veil from the boy's eyes. Quickly he moves in to save his traveling companion from a life of ill-repute.
