~Plot Synopsis~
In this typically moralistic silent western, newspaperman "Truthful" Tulliver (William S. Hart)
rescues sisters Grace (Alma Rubens) and Daisy (Nina Byron) Burton from lewd remarks and the
unwanted attention of rube townsmen, thereby incurring the enmity of dance-hall operator "Deacon"
Doyle (Milton Ross). "Truthful" begins a crusade against Doyle, who, it is later revealed, is actually
the henchman for Eastern dandy York Cantrell (Norbert Myles). Both men are driven out of town.
But not before Cantrell manages to wrong Daisy, who confesses to her sister. Falsely assuming that it
is Grace his fiancée who has been wronged, "Truthful" apprehends Cantrell. The cad, however, does
the decent thing and marries Daisy, leaving Tulliver and Grace to plan a life together.
