Storyline

Nell Hargrave, our heroine, is the daughter of the general storekeeper at Dobson's Corners, Tex. Thirty miles from the nearest railroad, the settlements far and few between, Hargrave's Emporium is the hub of the surrounding territory. Uncle Sam has installed a post office and the Great Western Express Company has made Hargrave their agent, while the stage coach, arriving at noon each day, changes horses, leaves the mail and whatever express there may be. On the day that our story opens the stage driver leaves in Hargrave's care a small, heavy box, addressed to the Southwestern Mining Company, and containing several thousand dollars in gold, pay for the mining company's employees. Word has leaked out, however, that the money is to be sent on this day and as the coach drops the box and continues its journey a horseman, dodging behind a clump of trees further down the road, wheels suddenly about and gallops off in the opposite direction.

The wild sweep of life
15 February 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A stirring Western story of attempted robbery, the escape of the bandits, their pursuit by a posse headed by a dashing Western girl, and their final capture. These bits of scenes which accurately reproduce real life are so spirited and they interpret conditions which have existed at different times with so much fidelity to facts that criticism seems unnecessary. And probably if it were undertaken it would have to content itself with minor details which really do no mar the picture, nor in any degree detract from its power and meaning. The wild sweep of life as depicted in these Western pictures actually occurred and they are sufficiently accurate in their delineations to give a fair idea of that life and those who lived it. Beyond that attention to minute details is unnecessary, excepting as it completes what is otherwise attractive and in a way inspiring. - The Moving Picture World, January 15, 1910
