After many months of prospecting, Jim finally locates a deposit of gold and stakes out his claim. He makes the acquaintance of Mary, a charming girl who lives nearby, and they become sweethearts. One day a stranger appears and asks for work. Jim welcomes him to his humble home and a compact is entered into, whereby the newcomer is to work on the claim in payment for his board. The stranger loses no time in shaving off his beard, which, however, does not arouse Jim's suspicion until the sheriff appears one day with a picture of a noted outlaw who is wanted. Jim recognizes the likeness as that of his partner and throws the official off the trail. As time progresses, Jim finds that the stranger is paying court to Mary and later it is discovered that the outlaw is systematically robbing his host of the gold dust which has been gathered. Jim, unable to control his anger, is about to kill his unscrupulous partner when an accident prevents him from the deed. A few days later the outlaw is caught in a landslide and perishes. Jim and Mary find the body and bury it. The sheriff passes and Jim is able to assure him that the unfortunate man has passed away. Written By Moving Picture World synopsis  Less
