SYNOPSIS

"Barr Messenger, the victim of a frame-up, after which he is accused of being a cattle thief, escapes from the ranch and gets across the Mexican border. He had been in love with Betty Brownlee, who had disappeared from town shortly after the sum of $10,000 had been stolen from her firm. She gets a position as waitress in the headquarters of Red McGee, head of the 'Kingfisher' gang of outlaws. One night she innocently gives out some information about the gang and Red is ordered to seize her for the Kingfisher. Burr [ sic ] comes into the scene unexpectedly and fights Red as he is trying to kidnap Betty, and succeeds in running down the whole Kingfisher gang and discovering that they were responsible for framing him, at the same time learning that Betty's sister, not Betty, stole the $10,000."
