A newcomer, Lucy, arrives in town and finds work scrubbing floors at Belle's Saloon. Belle's regular patrons include a cattle rancher, a banker, the town deputy, and, on occasion, "Dizzy" the singing cowboy comes in for a hand of poker. The town is riddled with talk of all the recent train robberies...and you might say that's where things get interesting. Rumors have it that a man-woman team is responsible. A wanted poster with a photo shows Lucy to be one of the robbers. All the bar regulars conjure up a way to trap Lucy into confessing, but the tables are turned and the joke's on them.
