剧情简介:

Ray and Florenz agree, on their graduation day, to meet again in ten years, wherever they may drift in the meantime. Shortly before the ten years' time expires, Rance brings his sister to the west. She has hip disease, and be being poor, is hard put to it to take care of her. He gets a position as line rider, where he can come home each night. Daily he carries her to a comfortable seat on the porch, which is screened by vines or location from the ranch house. Rance draws only half as much money as the cowboys, and as the ranchman likes him, he gives him an opportunity to become a cowboy and get more money. Rance refuses, because the work would prevent his coming home every day to care for his sister. The cowboys think he is a coward on account of this and spurn him. He quarrels with one of them about it. Meanwhile, Ray has become a country doctor near the ranch. Florenz is a great specialist, whose word is the last when hip disease is considered. Florenz comes to visit Ray in completion of the agreement of ten years before. The ranchman one day sends Rance to town to get the money for the monthly payday. Rance is unable to get across the river, which is flooded, and returns to report his failure. This angers the cowboys a great deal and he has a hard time to "ward off" a serious fight. He goes home and the cowboys follow. They discover a woman in the house and are plotting all sorts of meanness when they hear Rance tell her that he wishes they could get Dr. Florenz to consider her case, as he could cure her. They make up a purse and present it to Rance, but his foolish pride will not let him accept. The ranchman's daughter sustains a fall from a horse and a doctor is needed. The cowboys are all out at work and the ranchman offers Rance $1,000 to cross the river and get the doctor. Upon receiving a promise that his sister shall be looked after in case he should perish, Rance sets out. After a perilous swim and a narrow escape, he succeeds in getting the doctor. The re-crossing of the river is made in a boat, which was on the other side and Florenz accompanies Ray on the trip. The ranchman grudgingly pays over the $1,000, but Rance has him give it to Florenz, who, inquiring as to the reason, learns of the sister and her troubles. He refuses the check, declaring that it would be only right to aid her as a reward for her brother's heroism. He discovers that he can cure her. Six weeks later she takes her first step, stumbling into his arms. The romance which has begun during the treatment, finds its culmination -there, as Ray and the ranchman's daughter, who have a romance of their own, stand smiling
