~Plot Synopsis~
Jack Thompson asks "Boss" Barnet for his daughter's hand, and the wise old man asks him how
much money he has in the bank. Jack is embarrassed and the "boss" tells him that when he has
$2,500 he will consent to the wedding. The young people are disappointed by the turn of affairs, and
to hasten the wedding the girl hits upon a clever ruse. They cut out some of her father's steers and
sell them to a cattle buyer for $2,500. The couple engage a minister and return to the ranch, where
Jack shows the money to Barnet. The father gives his consent to the ceremony being performed and
it is not until they are united that the newlyweds return the money and inform him that the joke is on
him.
