Minnie Harding, a Western maiden, is preparing for a hard washing day. Sam, the negro helper, is assisting her with the wash, carrying water and filling the tub. While he is making his third trip to the well, a cowboy rides up to the cottage and asks Minnie for a drink. She goes to get it and the cowboy, taking advantage of her hospitality, makes love to her. Minnie repulses him and the cowboy becomes insulting. When Sam returns he finds Minnie struggling in the arms of the cowboy, but being a coward himself, he runs out to the road to see if other help cannot be secured. Ross White, another cowboy, is cantering by when Sam sees him and tells him that Minnie has been insulted by a strange cowboy. White is a good friend of Minnie's and, hurriedly dismounting, runs to the house. White orders the cowboy away and the latter, menacing White with future revenge, sneaks away.

A complete and satisfactory film
27 March 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

As strong and powerful a Western drama as ever released by this firm. There are strong dramatic crises which are developed to the utmost and are made as much of by the capable actors as possible. And there is a dash and go to the entire picture which makes it stirring at times. There is a love story connected with it which gives it a heart interest and serves to develop and maintain a human, not a wholly curious interest. Details are worked out with careful attention. The acting is sympathetic and the photography helps to make it a complete and satisfactory film, certain to please an audience. - The Moving Picture World, April 2, 1910
