The ex-sheriff now goes to the bad, drinking, etc., having no ambition. The toughs take advantage of his loss of ambition and heap indignities upon him and he makes no protests. He becomes acquainted with the new sheriff's little boy and they become fast friends. One day a bad man seeks to kill the new sheriff and has him cornered. The new sheriff is unarmed and only a door stands between him and death. The little boy runs for the ex-sheriff, who comes to the rescue, but his courage and ambition being gone, he can put up no fight and the bad man brushes him contemptuously away. The little boy now gives the ex-sheriff his father's badge with which he had been playing. The insignia of office brings back the lost courage and the ex-sheriff returns to the outlaw, and, with his old-time decision, overpowers and disarms him. The new sheriff makes his rescuer his deputy. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
