Storyline

Cynthia Moore, daughter of Colonel Moore, who is the commander of a cavalry post near the Mexican frontier, is much beloved by two junior officers in her father's command. They are Lieutenant Robert Bright and Lieutenant Arthur Hartley, both graduates of West Point, where they had been rivals during their Academy Days. This rivalry, which had been friendly at West Point, became very bitter when they were both assigned to Col. Moore's post and met his attractive daughter, and the true nature of the two men began to assert itself. Under the influence of Cynthia's smiles, Hartley worked with a will, mastered the intricacies of frontier strategy, proved himself in several tight places, and won the respect and esteem of the Colonel. Bright, on the other hand, became surly and morose, drunk a great deal, and placed himself daily farther and farther away from Cynthia and the hope of winning her. Hartley took up the study of wireless telegraphy, so necessary to maneuvers in latter-day warfare... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

One can but commend the adroit use of the wireless
24 June 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An interesting love story woven around a wireless telegraph station at a frontier army post. Jealousy develops in a rival, but notwithstanding this the story ends well. The favored lover is captured, condemned to death and imprisoned until sunrise. But with a pocket sender, a novelty now, but perhaps in the near future a reality, he communicates with the post, is rescued by the soldiers and arrives just in time to see his enemy force his attentions upon the girl. The rest may be left to the imagination. One can but commend the adroit use of the wireless, with its mystery, in developing an interesting tale. It would be hard to imagine anything better in this particular line. - The Moving Picture World, June 25, 1910
