Storyline

Robert Graham, a rich land owner, buys a farm adjoining that of a widow, Mrs. Sarah Brown. In surveying the property, the report of the surveyors makes the claim that the Widow Brown's fence, dividing the two properties, encroaches five feet on Graham's property. Graham is a thorough business man, so he sends a note to the Widow Brown commanding that the fence be set back where it belongs. The widow receives the note and says: "The fence will remain where it is." The next day three workmen drive up to the Widow Brown's gate and tell her that they have received orders to set the fence back five feet. Mrs. Brown turns back into the house and emerges a moment later with a loaded shotgun and a threat that the first man who touches her fence will be shot. They retreat and are finally forced off the widow's premises. The next day Graham, raging with indignation, comes on the scene. A sign is posted at the fence, which says, in effect, that the first man who touches her fence will be shot. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

There is plenty of life and excitement
21 March 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

With a thrilling exhibition of Western life and character the Essanay people offer what is probably one of the best Western films they have ever put out. There is the spirit of daring, exhibitions of bravery and sufficient pathos to balance the dramatic features and keep the onlooker interested from beginning to end. Not a weak point appears in the acting, and the development of the story is worked out so cleverly that the interest grows. Always the love story which runs through these films adds to their interest, and always the Essanay people make it a prominent feature of their pictures. There is plenty of life and excitement and pathos to maintain the interest at a high level. - The Moving Picture World, March 26, 1910
