A gossip neighbor calls upon the girl and, after a bit of questioning, learns all the details. Bursting with importance, the gossip tells the news to everyone she meets. A couple of rough characters hear of the girl's wealth, go to her home, and take the bonds from her, making good their escape. The girl communicates with her sweetheart, a deputy U.S. Marshal, who follows and finally corners them in an out-of-the-way log house. By a clever bit of strategy, the marshal manages to arrest one of the thieves, but is shot from behind by the other. When he regains consciousness he again takes up the trail. This time he is aided by several brother officers and a posse of cowboys. After an exciting chase, the thieves are run down, and the bonds recovered. As the deputy marshal returns the bonds to the girl, he takes occasion to impress upon her mind the fact that she needs protection: She comes around to his way of thinking and the happy pair start to town for a marriage license.
