For some mysterious reason she never is allowed to visit her father, who lives in a distant village, though occasionally he comes to see her. At last Nell runs away by stage coach to her father's town. En route the coach is held up by the Black Ghost Bandit, and thus Nell meets young Sheriff Jordan, who takes her to her father's cottage. Nell lives happily with her father, except that she cannot overcome his prejudice against Jordan, whom he never will see. One day during Brand's absence she meets with an accident on horseback while riding alone. She is thrown and hurt. When she comes to herself she starts to walk to the village. She comes upon the Black Ghost Bandit, shadows him to his cave, and then hurries on to inform the sheriff. They return together to make him captive only to discover that the bandit and Nell's father are the same. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
