An Indian couple lives in a teepee; Indian in a blanket comes to cabin. Intertitle, 'A Year Later.' A bootlegger at a still in another cabin sells two bottles. Another man, named 'Silly,' is played by John C. Brownell; delivers mail. Rupert is coming back because his sergeant wants him to solve 'illicit still...liquor being sold to the Indians of Rock County.' Bootlegger offers Jacques a deal.
