Molly, while among her favorite pigeons, is approached by Jake, whose boldness receives a just rebuke. Two months later Jack agrees to take Molly's pet pigeon for a practice flight and makes the most of the opportunity. A few days later Jack, while driving his team, comes across a half-breed Indian, who is unmercifully beating his horse. Jack stops the Indian's cruel treatment of the pony and chastises the half-breed. In revenge the Indian plans to raid the bullion wagon. Jack, starting out on his trip to the smelter, takes Molly's pigeon for a long flight. While on his way he is ambuscaded by the Indians. Jack puts up a good, stiff fight, but the odds are against him. As a last resort he scribbles a message on a piece of his handkerchief and attaches it to the pigeon and sends the bird on its way. The message is delivered. Molly quickly organizes a rescue party, which rides to the rescue, arriving just in the nick of time.
