The story of this film tells of the influence that the child had upon an outlaw. He stopped at her father's house for something to eat and when he left she toddled away after him. Her father returned and, upon missing her, suspected that the bandit had carried her away. The bandit himself discovers her as she is being followed by an Indian and risks capture to take her home. The sheriff and all his deputies have been assembled, but the bandit holds them all up, relieves them of their arms and departs. He leaves a note for the sheriff, saying that he intends to live straight in the future, all because of the little one. - The Moving Picture World, February 3, 1912
