Storyline

Jim Barton, a cowpuncher, is in love with Florence Wessel. Florence's father is not in favor of Barton paying attention to his daughter, and wants her to marry Joe Scott, the postmaster. Unknown to everybody, Scott is a gambler and plays the races. A horse on which he bets all of his money loses, and he decides to rob the post office safe. Florence's father, the sheriff, hears the sound of the explosion and goes to investigate. Scott shoots the sheriff and leaves evidence to blame the crime on Barton. The doctor probes for the bullet and it is found not to fit Barton's gun, but Scott's. Scott is taken away and Barton is left with the girl for the termination of a pretty romance.

The villain is too simple
14 October 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

It is seemingly a long time before this story gets down to business and before the villain gets marked definitely off from the hero. At its best, the villain is too simple to seem really dangerous and so the plot is not truly effective or dramatic. It is naturally acted and the photography is very clear. - The Moving Picture World, August 9, 1913
