Storyline

After a year of married life a young mother learns the real metal of her mate, a coward who, fearful of the strife of the world, deserts her and the child. It is a terrible blow, and she feels that she cannot survive it. She summons her brother to her deathbed and into his hands she delivers her written accusation of the cur and with her last breath charges him with the duty, vengeance. Such a character as the brother's needs no charge to bring the villain to justice, and, armed with his photograph, he starts west, whither the deserter has fled. We now see him, after a long search, entering a barroom for refreshment. He is a stranger in a strange land, and the frontiersmen eye him askance. He is scanning their faces, too, but they do not know it. Suddenly a new figure appears; he cannot believe it, looks at the photo again; it is the man he is looking for!

Will gladden the exhibitor
8 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

A story of an unfaithful father who deserts the girl he has wronged and migrates to the West, where he is discovered by the girl's brother. The wrong is revenged in a highly dramatic manner, which introduces Jane, the pet of the Western ranchmen. She innocently causes the arrest of the brother who took the law in his own hands, but saves his life in a truly dramatic manner when she learns through a letter that his crime was justifiable. A fine bit of acting and by-play follows when she lets the ranchmen into the secret and they plan a pleasant surprise for the man who expected to get it in the neck. There is a strength, and go to this picture throughout its entire length which will gladden the exhibitor. - The Moving Picture World, February 26, 1910
