Storyline

Jack Ferris has gone west to take possession of his uncle's mine, the sole possession his relative had to leave. It is a lonely situation for a young man used to the life and bustle of the city, but Ferris bravely sticks it out, sustained by the thought that he is working for the little girl "back east." He is rejoiced when a letter comes that tells him he is to receive a visit from Agnes and her father: the latter coming west to look into some investments. The thought that the lonely little cabin will be informed by her presence delights him. But a telegram follows the letter telling him that her father is injured and cannot come. Jack works at the baffling rock that hides from him the pay streak he knows must be there somewhere.

One of those pictures possessing a subtle power
19 May 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The touch of human nature in this picture, the impulse of love for a woman which sends men out to work and dare is so clearly depicted and its wonderful power is so strongly portrayed that one's sympathies are aroused and probably the most callous and indifferent person in the audience will sympathize with the young man in his struggle. And then when he does strike the pay streak, even though he was hurt in the blast, they all rejoice with him. It is one of those pictures possessing a subtle power that holds one's sympathies throughout the length. The scenes at the mine are realistic and there is a strength and earnestness about it all which appeals irresistibly to all alike. - The Moving Picture World, May 21, 1910
