While she is engaged in this form of enlightenment in the public square, Waggy Bill and his cowboy friends ride up and decide to have some fun with the feminine. They ride to a curio shop and costume store and rent a lot of wigs and Indian costumes. After rigging and painting up they pounce upon Miss Roundtree and carry her off to the mountain. They tie her to a tree and pile brush about her as if to make a funeral baked feast. Waggy Bill, the leader of this deviltry, slips down to the stream, washes up, comes back on the scene "propria persona," and empties blank cartridges on the crowd with such effect that he decimates the Indians and rescues Samantha. She is something more than grateful to her hero and clings to Waggy Bill like a leech. She gets him to town, and having gotten a man, forgets all about votes for women. The cowboy-Indians return and rescue Waggy Bill from the fervent embraces of the frightened Samantha. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
