The proprietor of the "General Store" is in bad health and desires to live in the country. He meets Betty and offers to trade his store for her horse, and she accepts his proposition. The next day a bunch of drunken cattle punchers are "irrigating" at the saloon next door, when one of them carelessly lets off his gun at a card on the wall, and the bullet passes through, barely missing Betty. She goes immediately into the saloon to remonstrate. Some of the drunkards insult her, but Jim, the one who fired the shot, protects her and promptly falls in love with her. Later she tells him that if he will stop drinking, she will give him a job. He accepts and she puts him in charge of her quarter section. After a year of good behavior, Jim prevails upon Betty to marry him. His old friends prepare a surprise feast for the happy couple when they return from the minister's house and so the dinner is ready and all hands are in for a good time. As they are lifting their glasses of "Ohio champagne" to drink to the bride, Jim says oracularly, "Boys, if you want to drink to the health of Mrs. Jim, you'll shore have to drink water." Later, Jim buys back the horse that was the means of bringing about their happiness. So Betty made good, likewise Jim. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
