How a gold mine was discovered under the cabin
25 February 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This western picture shows how a gold mine was discovered under the cabin of an unsuccessful prospector. Two Indians visit his cabin three times and force his wife to give them food. The third time the little girl runs and tells her father. He returns and has them chastised with a whip. That night he is decoyed from the cabin and the Indians set fire to it. The woman and her daughter with difficulty escape with their lives. When the miner returns he finds them shivering in their night clothes beside the ruins of their shanty. He begins poking about among the ruins, seeking bits of metal which have not been destroyed by the fire, and turns up a nugget of gold. - The Moving Picture World, July 8, 1911
