Telegraph Train Terror

Grace is the young girl with the mundane job of sending and receiving telegraph messages along the railroad line, and in her small town railroad station the most exciting thing that happens to her is the simple-minded fellow who brings her a soda pop and asks her for a date . . . Then there is Jack, the railroad express agent who steals a kiss from the belligerent girl, but otherwise it is a pretty dull place . . . until Grace gets a telegraph message informing her that a large strong-box full of cash will be arriving on the next train . . . There is nothing exciting about that . . . since in her small town there isn't any crime and the most popular sport is watching the grass grow . . . But crime sometimes comes to the country along with the train, and on this train there are a couple of train tramps who learn that the strong box is full of cash, and they decide to attack Grace and force her to open the box. Terrified, Grace locks the door before they can get in and as they are pounding on the door and trying to break it down Grace has an inspired thought . . . She takes a bullet that happens to be laying around and puts it into the keyhole and then gets a hammer and a screwdriver and punches the bullet till it fires through the keyhole, frightening the bandit-tramps. When the tramps decide that breaking into the office might be more dangerous than they anticipated they take the locked strong box and try to make an exit, but Grace chases after them because she is entrusted with the box and she must not break that trust. Grace fights with the tramps but they beat her till she cannot fight any more and then they kidnap her and take her with them as they make their escape. It doesn't look good for Grace as the tramps, the strong box and a cowering Grace head off into the sunset on a railroad handcar. Pop a little bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
