Storyline

John Hopkins and Walter Stull were deep, deep in love with Peggy Glenn. It happened that they both called on the same evening. They could not conceal their hatred of each other. The first word led to the retort courteous and then swiftly to the quip modest, the reply churlish, the reproof valiant and finally to the lie direct. Pretty Peggy left the room and then the two young men left the house. They went to their respective clubs, where they told their respective friends of their respective hatreds. John's friends advised a duel. The challenge was sent and Walter readily accepted. Both arrived with their friends at the dueling ground by the old mill. It so happened that that same day Harry Myers, an old admirer of Peggy, returned unexpectedly from the west. He lost no time in calling on the girl he could not forget.

The audience looked at it in silence
4 June 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

It is a modern comedy that is not very amusing. The audience looked at it in silence except at two instances, when a messenger in a hurry slipped skilfully while going down some steps, and again when the same man took a plainly premeditated header down a bank. It was conducted with not much skill, but there are some very pretty pictorial effects in it. Two men chance to meet at the same girl's. They quarrel; the girl leaves the room; the maid brings their hats. Each at his own club excites much sympathy. A challenge is accepted; about ten men in tile hats arrive at the dueling place, but none among them knows how to conduct a duel, so they toss up to see who shall choose the weapons. This gives time for the messenger from the girl to arrive with the news that she is going to marry a third man. The way the girl got news of the duel was not at all realistic; it hardly could have happened as shown. - The Moving Picture World, December 23, 1911
