In a small town, a visitor stops in at the newspaper office to ask about the local population, and what the town is like. Just then a big woman rides up, it’s Big Minnie, an opinionated and outspoken woman. As brassy as she is, the newspaper man thinks highly enough of her.
The stranger seems to have overheard enough to plan to pull a fast one on the big woman. She had been in the newspaper wanting to place an ad for marriage, and she can’t read. The man claims to be wanting to marry for business convenience. He presents her with an aledged marriage contract, and tricks her into signing it, believing that she will be running the strangers lands out west. The skeptical newspaper man gets into a fight when he is doubtful of the paper Minnie signed.
Sure enough, the stranger fooled her into turning all her property to him, and he wants her off his newly acquired land. Meanwhile, Cisco and Pancho ride up talking about Big Minnie, and look forward to see her again. She’s glad to see them, and tells them how proud she is of her newspaper man when he fought for her when the shady character tried to swindle her. After getting the whole story, Cisco promises to do all he can to help.
Elsewhere, the swindler sets about ensureing his paper is legal. The local lawman seems to think it’s legal, but warns that if the guy is pulling a swindle, it won’t be healthy for him in these parts. When the sheriff rides in to evict Big Minnie, Cisco has a look at the papers, and seeing they are legitimate, advises her to pack up, but assures her she will have her property back soon.
Cisco is found studying up on legal loopholes. Pancho gets confused over a couple figures of speech that Cisco uses. Cisco hits on what he’s looking for. Since there were two men in town who were already keen on Big Minnie, Cisco convinces them to decided, and one of them is to marry Big Minnie. Somehow the law makes it so it will save her from the contract. Though the gents have agreed to go along with the plan, will big Minnie do the same?
Big Minnie is enraged over the whole idea, and goes to fight it out with the swindler, withCisco at her side. Though he is just a small guy, the newspaper man takes offense, and again fights for his gal, it’s just the thing to clinch it for Minnie, and melt her heart. The two are to be married at noon the next day, and her contract she signed will become null and void. Look out kiddies, there’s mushy stuff coming, and even for Pancho this time too.
