Abstract:

Cowboys ride their horses into a saloon and force some dudes to dance by shooting at their feet. Later, the men watch riding and rope tricks. Passengers board a stagecoach and depart, followed by bandits who rob the stage and kidnap a young woman. The stage driver gathers a posse to apprehend the bandits; after a long chase, they finally rescue the girl. A final sequence, appearing only in the Kleine copies and which may be extraneous, shows an outlaw sneaking up on a young couple in the woods. As the outlaw is about to shoot, an Indian maiden appears and shoots him.
