Synopsis

Mamie Goltz, a country girl who is forced to work for her tyrannical father in his general store, finds romance in the person of Dr. John Harvey, a medicine man with a traveling troupe, though her father has planned to marry her to Peter, an unwholesome young widower. When Harvey invites Mamie to demonstrate his cosmetics, her father gives her a beating. Despite the punishment, Mamie eludes her father to keep a tryst with Harvey; and he, realizing she loves him, does not take advantage of her. Harvey is obliged to leave town when his assistants win a poker game, but he manages to marry Mamie before Goltz can get a marriage license for Peter. Gus, a hired man, tries to dissuade the furious Goltz from pursuing them; and in the struggle, Goltz is killed.
