Jack Marley, seeking adventure in the frontier West, finds a Pony Express rider mortally wounded and delivers his mailbag to Caspar. En route, he stops a runaway stage and gains the admiration of Mildred Orth from the East, who is searching for her father, Norman, lost since her childhood. The local boss and owner of the dancehall, "Hawk" Kent, covets the girl and orders Blaze Holton to frame her. She is compelled to work out her board in the dancehall. Jack auctions his horse to help her, then aids her escape. Blaze offers his aid against Kent, and before dying he tells Mildred he is her father and leaves his money to her.
