The Bad Man

A water tank railroad station in the “wild and woolly” is shown with the cow punchers assembled to give the expected agent a warm reception. The agent turns out to be a woman. All the hands turn their attention from hazing to love making for good comedy purpose. A tenderfoot, as evidenced by Eastern clothes, is the lucky suitor. He bests the “bad man” in a fight, but later both tenderfoot and woman are overcome by the desperado on robbery bent. The tenderfoot is tied to the railroad track, while the woman is bound hand and foot to the table within the telegraph office. She escapes in time to effect her lover’s release and the two embrace as the expresses rushes past.
The reel accomplishes the essential purpose of keeping an audience in their seats until the lights are turned on.
