Julie Gage's father becomes ill with a fatal fever. The fever has everyone scared but the Major and Tobe Cannon take care of laying out her father. Julie is quite attractive and now alone so the Major with urging from others starts pairing Julie with single men to help her drive the wagon and take care of the maintenance on it. Julie is not interested in them for work or otherwise but when Tobe is convinced to help she accepts it. Tobe comes down with the fever and Julie with some help from the Major is left alone to tend to him for several days. When the women start taking issue with the arrangement, Julie has the Major "half marry" her to Tobe. When Tobe recovers, he is still not interested in the other "hal" of the marriage, yet.
