SYNOPSIS

"'Laughing Larry' proposes to Alene Hamlin and is accepted by her. The girl had several suitors, one of whom takes his defeat with a smile, although he is nearly lynched, the villagers accusing him of having cowardly shot Larry when the latter is bit by a rattlesnake. Larry, however, is saved by Indians and recovers in time to save his friend. Later Alene's father, pressed for money, is tempted to rob the savings of his men. The theft is discovered by Larry, who shoots him, but on seeing it is Hamlin he hides him. Suspicion turns to him. Repentant, the old man resolves to right what wrong he has done, but this he finally does with the help of Larry, who advances the money to the boys, while Hamlin re-establishes himself and saves the ranch. Finally he makes a confession and all hands are made happy, but not until after a series of thrilling happenings in which the happy-go-lucky hero is almost hanged."
