~Plot Synopsis~
Violet De Ray opens up a barber shop at Roaring Gulch. Violet not only does a ripping good business, but
she unconsciously has a hand in hurrying along several matrimonial affairs which have hung fire. This is
notably the case with Si, who has loved bashfully and at a respectable distance for years. He is lured into
Violet's shop, and after his chin whiskers have been clipped he emerges elated; and this coupled with
Mandy's desire to protect him from such evil influences, cements a long drawn out romance. Marcia
Allen is a flirt. Her pa takes her to the window, so that she may see her Jack being patted and petted, after
which Marcia is not so coy. Pa's desire to get into the lady barber's shop never consummates, owing to
Ma's vigilance, and when Pa, with malice aforethought, injures his hand so that he cannot shave himself,
Ma officiates with disastrous results as far as Pa's beauty and comfort are concerned. The ladies of
Roaring Gulch eventually meet and decide to oust this interloper and innovator. They swoop down upon
her in a body; they look through the widow and see the minx kissing a gentleman of Italian extraction.
They enter and make themselves very unpleasant and discover that the man is Violet's husband. Violet is
persuaded to leave and does so in good financial circumstances, and Bill the barber's smile returns and
he does his customary business as of yore.
