Abstract:

The Ruse: After he abandons gunfighting for prospecting, Bat Peters meets up with a shady Chicago businessman who kidnaps Bats sweethart, forcing the retired gunman to strap on his six-guns and bring western justice to town.

An Arizona wooing: Cowboy Tom Warner raises sheep on a cattle ranch owned by Mr. Dixon, the father of his girlfriend Jean. Jean, meanwhile, is being menaced by a Mexican outlaw who wants her for his own. When Jean's father decides he no longer wants Tom to raise sheep on his ranch they quarrel, and Dixon sends a gang of ranch hands to persuade Tom to leave.

The great train robbery: A group of bandits stage a train hold-up, only to find a determined posse hot on their heels.

Out West: Also known as Chase yourself, Jimmie, Lavoris and Turpentine have just arrived in the West where Two-Gun Joe, the local bad man, surprises them while they eat. When the sheriff runs him off, Two-Gun drops a monogrammed pipe which Jimmie picks up. Molly, on a nearby ranch, is having troubles with her foreman who, when he sees the pipe, thinks Jimmie is the outlaw and gets real peaceful. Impressed, Molly offer Jimmie the ranch-foreman's job.
