As described in a film magazine,[4] J.B. (Hart) rides into Tumble Bluff and at once gets into an altercation with Dandy Dan McGee (Farley), the proprietor of the Palace dance hall and saloon. McGee is determined to drive the new minister (Shaw), who is erecting a church, out of town, and attempts to force his attentions on the minister's wife Susan (Terry). She is saved by J.B., but not for social reasons alone but because he wants her for himself. J.B. becomes friendly with the minister's child Mary Jane (Irving), and learns to spell from her primer. Susan sells him a Bible and asks him to read it. The stage coach is robbed and the criminal escapes on a "painted" pony belonging to J.B. The minister is accused of the crime by McGee and is about to be hung when J.B. rides in and cuts the minister down. J.B. "confesses" that he held up the stage and rides off into the desert while reading his Bible. Previously he had planned to abduct the ministers wife, but became conscious struck when he discovered McGee in her house on the same errand.
