Fortunately they come to an Indian camp where they get food and water, and So-Jun-Wah a beauteous Indian maid, shows them the trail to the settlement. Reagan and So-Jun-Wah fall in love at sight, but he goes on his way. Later she meets him with her mother as they are out berrying. The old Indian woman covets two kettles hanging over their camp fire, but Reagan declines to sell them. The old squaw insists and pushes Jun-wah into the arms of Reagan, remarking, "You take girl, me take kettles." The mother takes the kettles and leaves her daughter with Reagan. The next day So-Jun-Wah returns to her home to get her pony and is returning to Reagan when Me-Ha-Jah, a brave who has failed to win her love, catches her, ties her to a tree and then rides on to the waiting Reagan and tells him that the Indian girl cares for him no longer. The revengeful Indian then returns to his captive and takes her to the chief of the tribe who condemns her to be stoned to death for having broken the tribal law. Reagan and his friends happen along and rescue the girl just as the cruel sentence is about to be executed. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
