Storyline

Here is a warning to all who are of a revengeful nature, as the plans may sometimes revert to our chagrin if not disaster. The two young fellows are rivals for the hand of a pretty girl of the village, and after her marriage with the one of her choice, the other swears to be revenged. To effect this he pours chemically treated oil into the irrigation ditches of the husband's farm. This of course ruins the land for vegetation, but it brings the husband a fabulous hum from a speculator in oil lands, who thinks he has struck a highly productive oil field. (transcribed from 1910 newspaper ad - p.d.) Written by Tammy Gross

The picture is a choice bit of comedy
4 April 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A delicious comedy in which revenge is turned into a gold mine by that mysterious destiny which shapes all lives, and does it in spite of those most affected. If anyone had told the victim- of this villain's schemes that the very thing which apparently ruined them would bring them wealth, they would have laughed at it, or would have deemed it altogether impossible. The only weak point in the story, or the only point which one might wish different, is that in which the speculator, in no wise interested in the lovers' quarrel, loses his money. Possibly, however, the end may justify this slight deviation from what seems the correct path. As a whole the picture is a choice bit of comedy, sure to please any audience fortunate enough to see it. - The Moving Picture World, April 16, 1910
