Summary

Pearl White opens an office in Red Dog, Nevada, as an agent of the Quick Pay Accident insurance Company. She goes out for business and makes herself known to all the miners in town and awaits their applications. The first to call is Chester. He gets insured and a little later accidentally shoots himself in the arm. He collects his insurance money, and tells all the boys of his good fortune. Instantly there is a rush of business and Pearl is swamped with applications. She issues policies to all. Then the men devise schemes to get hurt. One rolls down the mountainside. Another shoots himself in the arm. Still another trifles with a box of dynamite and so on down the line until there is not a man in town who cannot boast of some injury. They anxiously await the money from the main office and are somewhat dismayed when Pearl receives a letter from the main office of the company that it has failed and that they cannot collect. Pearl is in a fair way to being mobbed when Chester, who has taken quite a fancy to her, rescues her and the men have naught to do but to congratulate the pair on their approaching wedding festival.
