Unable to carry him alone, she is forced to accept the assistance of Dick, who has followed her, in getting him to the cabin. Her father not showing any signs of recovery, she asks Dick to go for a doctor. This he refuses to do, saying that it is useless. She attempts to go herself, but he prevents her and she sinks down beside her father. Here Dick makes her a proposition. He will go for help if she will promise to marry him.

The story is not typical nor even convincing enough to be vital
4 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Perhaps the villain pictured on this film is a shade meaner than other villains, he is such a pup anyway that he transcends conventionality. He forced Lulu to marry him by an action that was smaller than the littlest potatoes and then hardly drew a sober breath. The man from the East fell in love with her before he saw her wedding ring, but she refused to elope with him. Her husband overheard the conversation and it shamed him into becoming a man. It is an interesting picture, but the story is not typical nor even convincing enough to be vital. The photography of some of the scenes is very good. The backgrounds are not wholly in keeping, but, the miner's cabin is truly made of logs. It is luxuriously furnished. - The Moving Picture World, October 28, 1911
