His father buys a ranch in Arizona and sends Willie out to run the business. He comes with "all the fixin's," and has not been on the place an hour before he tries to ran, or reform the outfit. The cowboys decide he needs some experience and proceed to put him through "the third degree." He is persuaded to mount an outlaw and he is bucked higher than the price of wheat, then colliding with the uprising earth with emphasis. They put a bearskin on a burro to complete his scare. As soon as he recovers he discharges all of them; but, as he cannot run the ranch without them, he hires them back at advanced wages. They pretend to fall in with his plans, and urge him to show them how to handle a bunch of wild steers. He has a run for his life in this adventure, and faints from fear. As a result, he concludes that he knows nothing about the cattle business, and would rather brave the risks of the boulevards than the broad plains. He leaves for the far East amid rejoicing of all concerned. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
