Storyline

Patricia Watkins and her father are proprietors of the Lariat Saloon and dance hall but because of his small size and his tendency to keep in a state of perpetual drunkenness the old man has little to do with the business. Patricia as a barmaid meets all the riffraff of humanity drifting across the plains to the west and the Lariat Saloon is noted far and wide, not so much for the quality of its poisons as for the pretty maid who always offers a smile with the drink. On the evening our story opens, Patricia receives from the upstage driver a box of bullion with instructions to guard it carefully until the next day, when it will be picked up by the mountain stage. As the coach hauls up at the front of the saloon a man on horseback watches from behind a boulder, and, satisfied the box is left in care of the Watkins', wheels around and rides down the trail.

A story of plains life, involving a love affair between a sheriff and a pretty barmaid, and as the third in this triangle a bad man, who is looking for a quantity of bullion left with the girl for safe keeping. The only point of special interest in the story is the finding of the outlaw hidden in the loft by the girl by means of a drop of blood which flows from his wound and strikes the sheriff on the hand. This incident has been used once before, and if memory serves right, twice. Hence it is not entirely novel. At the same time it is interesting and perhaps serves its purpose in this instance quite as well as it would have done if it were new. Apparently most of the principal events have been used in this flood of Western pictures and it is small wonder if an effective scene like this is used more than once. - The Moving Picture World, October 15, 1910
