Will have the sympathy of every man who has red blood in his veins
16 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A picture which is, in a degree, rough, but the close will have the sympathy of every man who has red blood in his veins. A girl deserts her cowboy sweetheart and marries a gambler. In a short time she realizes her mistake and is thrust from the house when ill. Vainly she tries to induce her husband to take her back, but he refuses and she falls by the wayside in a dying condition, where she is found by her former lover. After she dies he hunts out her husband, forces him to go to the house and see her body and then gives him the choice of a vial of poison or bullets from is revolvers. Probably every man who sees this picture will agree that he received only his deserts. It was an effective way to mete out punishment, not warranted in law, but dictated by emotion. - The Moving Picture World, September 30, 1911
