The widow was extremely fair to look upon. Harry and Jack were extremely in love with her, though their characters were widely different. Each tried to keep the other from getting an advantage. One day, Harry slipped in from the range, and proposed to the widow. That fair lady promptly rejected him. A short time afterward, Jack called. Did the lady reject Jack? Not much. A couple of days later, at the post office, "Bright Eyes," a young Indian girl, was insulted by Harry. The widow interfered between Harry and the Indian girl. Harry then transferred his attentions to the widow, whereupon Jack knocked him down, and real live gun play was averted only by the appearance of several cowboys, who separated them. One day the widow and her little boy were out rowing on the river with Jack. They landed to take a walk through the woods, leaving the child sitting in the boat. Harry appeared at this point, and true to his nature, sought to get revenge by pushing the boat off and letting it drift towards the rapids. When the lovers returned from their walk, the widow was almost driven to distraction, by the disappearance of her little boy. In the meantime, Mary Lamson, a settler's daughter, saw the boat drifting down the river. She was an excellent swimmer, and promptly dived in and swam to the boat, where she was amazed to find the oars missing. Without them, she was helpless against the swift current, that was rapidly bearing them to destruction. From this predicament, they were rescued by some Indians, who saw them from the shore. But they were not friendly Indians, and they made the white child and the girl their prisoners. It so happened, however, that Bright Eyes was a member of this tribe, and she recognized the child as belonging to the young widow who had befriended her, so she slipped away, mounted a horse, and rode to the widow's home. Jack was there, and as soon as he heard where the little boy was, he called together the cowboys and started off to the rescue. The Indians saw them coming and tried to make their escape, but the cowboys overtook them, and after a battle, rescued the girl and child. The treacherous action of the disappointed lover, Harry, was discovered later, and he was driven form the ranch by the enraged cowboys. Jack and the widow, of course, were happily married.
