The Two Sides (1911)
- Summaries (2)
A rancher's daughter runs away and hides in the barn, where she falls asleep. A workman throws away a cigarette and the barn catches fire. A ranch hand sees the hay starting to burn but, angry that he's just been fired, decides to do nothing. He overhears the rancher calling for his missing daughter...
A Mexican laborer is discharged from the ranch with others, simply to reduce expenses to enhance the proprietor's already ample profits. Deprives of his revenue, the poor Mexican is in desperation as to the recovery of a sick child. This, however, does not concern the ranch owner, whose own child is possessed of all the luxuries money can buy, so he turns a deaf ear to the poor fellow's pleading. Through a childish caprice the ranch owner's daughter threatens to run away from home, she resenting a mild chastisement from her father, and hides in the barn. Through the careless dropping of a cigarette by another workman outside the barn, a fire occurs, enveloping the barn and placing the child in extreme peril. The Mexican discovers the fire and not aware of the child's presence therein, is inclined, through malice, to allow it to burn. Then he finds the child's purse outside the barn door, and suspects that the child is inside. At the risk of his own life he dashes in, and in an instant reappears with the child to place her safely in her father's arms.
