As described in a review in a film magazine, a crabbed, elderly lady on a motor trip through the west loses control of her car on a steep hill and Tom Faxon (Mix), a native, heroically rescues her. A few years after she dies, leaving her estate, consisting of a sanitarium for old ladies, to Tom. He immediately goes east, taking his chum Bunk (Holmes) with him. Tom gets to be very popular with the old ladies and is especially attracted to a charming nurse, Edith (Olmstead), and to Mrs. Carmichael (Claire), whose son, a successful artist, has neglected her. Tom makes it his business to go and bring the son to the home; he has to use rough methods, but he succeeds. Tom also by using cave-man stuff elopes with the pretty nurse, while Buck elopes with the housekeeper.
