Wes Brian, stage driver, rescues fair lady from leering admirer in the second paragraph, but by the nineteenth he thinks he has forgotten her. His Aspen-bound stage is being held up. From then on his life is a succession of fast moving events:- he is cheated of his share in a fabulous mine; he shoots the man who held up his stage; he manages to shoot oftener and faster than the others; and eventually Honora, of the second paragraph, comes into her own, and all ends happily. The first train toots into Aspen. The last stage coach is ushered out. A practised hand.
