Storyline

Louis Ransome entrusts some silver and a large sum of money to his foreman, Roger Peters, to take to his partner, Ralph Howell, in a neighboring town.

They follow him by a cross-cut and shoot at him. Roger dashes on, but one of the shots hits him. Finding himself wounded, he resolves to take refuge in his own home, where his niece, Sue, keeps house for him. He eludes his pursuers for a time and reaches home, only to die of his wound. He gives the money and the silver entrusted to him to Sue, and with his dying breath makes her promise, if possible, to deliver it safely to Howell.

It is a clearly told, interesting picture
23 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The Western heroine (Miss Story) succeeds in getting the large sum of money through to the town office of the mining company. The senior partner had entrusted it to one of his young men. A Mexican saw him start out, and with two Americans determines to rob him. The man sees the bandits in time to save himself from falling into their trap, but they follow him. Desperately wounded, he darts aside and takes refuge in the cottage of the heroine. He gives her the money and tells her to whom it belongs, and then dies. The bandits track the man and attack the house. By a clever ruse, the girl, escaping through a window, gets a good start with the money. The bandits see her making off and follow, but cannot overtake her, though it is a close call. It is a clearly told, interesting picture. - The Moving Picture World, October 14, 1911
