Storyline

Bob Dean, the deputy sheriff of Tonopah County, has fallen in love with Nance O'Brien, a bewitching little western maid, whose brother, as he supposes, works a claim on a neighboring hillside. Previous to a love scene between the sheriff and the maid a strange incident has happened which will arouse a suspicious thought in our minds as to whether or not Nance is as innocent of evil-doing as her frank face and guiltless eyes would suggest. In the first place, Nance, dressed in her brother's clothes, and Walt, her brother, ride up to their house, dismount and enter. Nance is seen for a brief moment removing her masculine make-up, which reveals her identity as a very beautiful western girl. Later Bob Dean rides up, and after a love scene with Nance, presents her with a pair of riding gloves. Finally he kisses her and rides away.

There is no encouragement to commit crime
16 August 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Not all men are so smitten with the pretty girls they find performing criminal acts that they manage to evade making arrests. In this instance the deputy runs his quarry to earth, and when he discovers that the girl he loves is implicated in a stage hold up he arrests her and takes her away along with her brother. If these pictures exert any effect, such as has been charged, an ending of this sort will correct. There is no encouragement to commit crime when it ends with the criminals apprehended and on the way to prison. It takes nothing from the interest of the picture to do this and the influence upon the audience is better. If those who might commit a crime that promised immunity can be taught that they are likely to be caught and punished the picture will have a salutary effect. - The Moving Picture World, September 10, 1910
