Storyline

A trapper, confident of the safety of his wife and child in the boundless woods while he is away on his trip to the trading post, a day's journey, leaves for that place to dispose of the pelts he has secured. He has just departed when an adventurous Frenchman and his guide saunter through the woods in search of game. From a distance the adventurer sees the trapper's wife place her bag of savings in its hiding place. At once his cupidity is aroused for his own purse is sadly depleted, and he is determined to get the bag of money, which purpose seems easy to accomplish. He finds, however, that the woman is made of stouter stuff than the ordinary female of the species and he not only falls but suffers for his attempted villainy.

The story fails to convince in one essential point
29 January 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Good drama. Biograph has a new "heavy," who is inclined to be melodramatic. The story fails to convince in one essential point. This is where the wife, in the absence of her husband on a trip to the trading post, sets two traps for game. She carries the two implements with no effort, their apparent weight being a couple of pounds apiece. The trap that later "gets'" the adventurer she fastens to a stake, which is driven into the ground with a tap. There is in this combination hardly enough to keep a man out of his near-by camp overnight. However, there is good work on the part of the actors, only six of whom appear in the entire reel. There are some charming bits of woodland scenery. - The Moving Picture World, September 14, 1912
