The male parents return from the city and meet their families on the lawn. White has a cowboy's suit for Buster. Black has an Indian suit for Brooks. They dress the boys in the suits. Meanwhile, Henrietta has put on one of her mother's dresses and goes out of the house and shows it. Buster is proudly showing his cowboy suit, when Brooks bounds into view, with an Indian suit on. An altercation ensues between the boys; Brooks fells Buster and drags the weeping Henrietta away as Buster is being carried into the house. Buster is put to bed and dreams that Brooks takes Henrietta to the Indian camp, he and his trusty band of cowboys follow, and as Henrietta is about to be burned at the stake Buster rushes in, kills the Indians, saves Henrietta, only to awaken and find his mother and father and Henrietta bending over him.
