Synopsis

Windy, a sideshow barker playing a small western town, swindles some cowboys with a rigged roulette wheel, and they decide to hang him for his perfidy; but he is saved by the intervention of a ranch foreman, who suggests that he work on the ranch and pay back the money he swindled. At the ranch, where Windy is forced to do menial tasks, he falls in love with the ranch owner, Molly; however, he is beaten in a fight with Steve, Molly's suitor. He decides to make his getaway during the roundup, but he saves Molly when she is bitten by a rattlesnake by taking her to an Indian medicine man. Returning, they are caught in a sandstorm, and she is retrieved by Buck, her brother. Thinking Molly has been kidnaped, the cowboys corner Windy in a deserted Indian village, and this time he defeats Steve; cleared by Buck, Windy is declared a hero and is reunited with Molly.
