While hunting, Arthur is accidentally shot by his companion, Harry, who, rushing to a passing auto for assistance, discovers that it carries Arthur's father.

These incidents drive her to desperation, and she tries to attack Flo, who manages to escape and hurries to where the wounded man lies.

If there are any improbabilities in the plot, they pass unnoticed
4 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This picture is very dramatic and intense. It is so convincingly acted that if there are any improbabilities in the plot, they pass unnoticed so long as the picture is on the screen. The great doctor's office nurse (Miss Lawrence) and the doctor's son (Mr. Johnson) have fallen in love. The doctor jokes with the nurse about it and seems delighted, but for some reason fails to tell his wife, the young man's mother. Without this defect the picture would have been perfect. His wife sees him joking with the nurse and becomes jealous. The aggravation of this jealousy to the point of madness by a train of circumstances, in which is the wounding of the son, is very commendably shown. The backgrounds of the story are particularly beautiful, being the leafy hedgeways of an old town, with also forest scenes, all of which are well photographed and have much pictorial quality. - The Moving Picture World, September 2, 1911
