  • Plot: Jason, the revenue officer, receives word that Mexican whiskey is being made in his district and is told to hire a deputy to keep strict watch. Clark, a village youth, is in love with Ruth, Jason's daughter, and they ask the old man to appoint him deputy so they can be married, but Jason has seen the boy abused by the town bad man and doubts his courage. Collins, one of the townsmen, is hired and with Jason goes into the hills to watch Bruner, a mountaineer, who is making the mescal. Jason searches Bruner's cabin and the latter hidden in the hills, fires upon him and seriously wounds him. Taking the officer back to town, Collins resigns and again Clark asks for the position but is again refused. Determined to leave the town, Clark bids Ruth goodbye and rides away. After several weeks of roving he secures employment on a ranch and a letter from Ruth reaches him, telling him that her father is threatened with the loss of his position for his failure to catch the whiskey maker. She begs him to return, hoping he can now secure the position as deputy because Jason's wound is still unhealed. Leaving the ranch, Clark starts home and stopping in a nearby town, engages in a card game with Bruner, unaware, of course, of his identity. Luck goes against the whiskey maker and he places some cards in Clark's boot and accuses him of cheating. Keeping the boy covered with his gun Bruner takes the money and rides away. Clark, unarmed, is refused a gun by the loiterers in the gambling hall, but taking one from a sleeping cowboy he starts in pursuit to force Bruner to retract the accusation. Not knowing that he is followed Bruner turns into the shack where the mescal is made and Clark sees him and is convinced that he is the whiskey maker. Hoping to save Jason's position for him, he dismisses the personal quarrel with Bruner and rides on into the town where he meets Ruth and tells her of his discovery. The girl sees the deputy's badge on him and giving him the guns tells him to go out and bring in the whiskey maker. Clark rides away and after taking Bruner prisoner is set on by the men from the shack, but taking refuge among the rocks holds them off. Ruth, worried at his failure to return, tells her father and they go in search. Clark, wounded and unconscious, is found beside Bruner, who is securely bound. The doctor assures Jason of the boy's recovery and the old man makes Clark retain the badge and become his deputy.
