Harvey Easter tries to reform Dodge. He convinces two saddle tramps, Kelly and Bunch to take up farming, Mary to quit working at the Long Branch to be independent and take in wash, gets Charlie Fess to quit riding shotgun on the stage and guts the oasis bar with fire by throwing a lamp after unsuccessfully trying to get Harry Obie and two cowpokes to reform. Kelly and Bunch are tired of farming and decide to rob a stage, it doesn't work out. The townspeople decide to teach Harvey a lesson. They put him in a canvas bag and dunk him in the water tower. The pole breaks and Harvey drowns before they can get him out.
