Storyline

Watson calls one day and takes Bobbie back to his office on the broncho. A few moments later Felton is taken ill, is put to bed by Mrs. Felton, and dies from the effect of a sun-stroke and weak heart. Bill Lewis, a cowboy on the ranch, is sent to summon the Sheriff.

It got the audience's attention early
15 January 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A picture in which the chief interest is a little girl, the "little sheriff." Her mamma was, or shortly became, a widow. Between her house and that of the sheriff, a bachelor, there was a stretch of very beautiful road through a wooded valley. This serves as background for many of the picture's scenes. There is some very speedy galloping to and fro along it. This, as indeed nearly everything else in it. for it is a well-designed picture, comes in as it should to make an effective whole. The climax follows the attack upon the widow in her house at midnight by a bad man. It got the audience's attention early and interested remarks showed that the spectators were following it closely. It is will photographed and makes a pretty good offering. - The Moving Picture World, August 24, 1912
