Now Showing! The Sheriff's Mistake

Secret Service agent, “James” (Edgar Jones), is looking for “Big Bill,” a bandit who has just held up the stage coach. “Nellie” (Clara Williams), a ranchman’s daughter, hears a description of the outlaw and mistakes James for the crook. She points the accusing finger and the posse locks him up. Then she discovers the truth and has to catch the bandit herself. James puts the handcuffs on Nellie in the end and they live happily ever after.
