He goes west to preach the gospel in the cattle country. He likes the men, the cowboys and the country, and at the same time he has a hankering for the fair sex; in fact, he falls in love with Rose Craig, the daughter of a ranchman. This last move is not so highly relished by the male members of his congregation, as girls in that section are really rarer, and he, picking the choice, consequently wins the enmity of many men, who felt they had the right of prior claim. A bunch of disappointed suitors plan to thrash the successful preacher, but much to their astonishment, he trounces the entire crowd. The cowards sneak off ingloriously, but one plans to "fix" the stigma of "cattle-rustler" upon him. However, the real cattle thief is discovered just in time and "with the goods." Again the parson takes the initiative and persuades the revengeful parties that having recovered their property, they can afford to allow the thief a minute's leeway to get out of sight. The rustler takes advantage of the situation to drop over a cliff, and the parson is reinstated as the master of the situation. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
