A bandit, after robbing the pay-master of the ranch, drops his mask, which is found by Lieut. Rogers. Rogers arrives at the home of Anita de Vidal, where he obtains a glass of wine and the mask drops to the ground. He explains how he found it, and incidentally incurs the jealousy and suspicion of Juan Ramirez. Juan is notified of the robbery, and remembering the mask, starts in pursuit of Rogers, whom he supposes is the bandit. Rogers sees him and his companions coming, and thinking them bandits, fires at them and rides away. Anita gives him shelter in her home and sends Juan on a false scent. He returns and enters the house where he finds Rogers. They are about to take the law into their own hands, when Don Pedro de Ramirez arrives, after capturing the real bandit. Due explanations follow, the money is restored to the rightful owner and the lovers, Anita and Lieut. Rogers, are reunited.
