Barlow is one of a party of timber thieves who have been working stealthily and to good profit in the government forest reserves on which property they live. Barlow and his crowd have assembled and are preparing to make another cutting. Anna tries to persuade her father not to commit the crime, describing the penalty, which means imprisonment if he is caught. He is abusive and the crowd goes out. The next scene shows them marking certain trees which are to be cut. We leave them here and show the office of the United States Marshal of the district.

The deputy shows what he thinks of the girl's bravery
7 July 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An exciting story told around a gang of timber thieves who are despoiling government forests. There are some dramatic scenes, particularly the one where the deputy is taken from his room and backed up against the wall to be shot. But the girl has been busy, and never having approved of this method of obtaining timber, she has no hesitation in riding furiously to the marshal's office and leading him and his men back to the timber thieves' cabin, where they burst in the door just in time to save the deputy's life. Then the heart interest develops and the deputy shows what he thinks of the girl's bravery by offering her his heart and hand. - The Moving Picture World, July 9, 1910
