Cast & Crew
Chet Wells rents some farm land from Deacon Todd and falls in love with his new neighbor, Emily Burke, who already has a sweetheart. The deacon and Emily's father, Major Burke, become involved in a land dispute, and the latter fires some buckshot at the former. The major discovers a body picked clean by vultures and assumes it to be that of the deacon, but he keeps quiet about the murder, although Emily soon learns of his guilt. When Chet hears about the incident, he decides to take the blame for it in order to spare the Burkes any embarrassment, and this gesture makes Emily forget all about her sweetheart and fall in love with Chet instead. Then, just before Chet can be convicted, the deacon appears. He reveals that after the buckshot narrowly missed him, he left town for awhile, and then it is discovered that the deacon's corpse is really that of a cow.
