Storyline

Lieutenant Wade is the favored suitor of Ethel Brown until a young doctor comes to the post on a visit, who supplants him in her affections. The attention she pays the doctor at a ball nearly breaks his heart, and he passes a sleepless night. In the early morning he orders his horse and goes for a ride. A pioneer comes to the post and asks for a doctor to attend his wife, who is seriously ill. The young physician volunteers his services, and Ethel accompanies him.

The story kills two reels and needs every foot
18 March 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

There is only one fault we notice in this picture and that is its name. In the first place, it isn't a picture of the civilian, but of the lieutenant whose courage contrasts with the civilian's cowardice. These two men and the pretty daughter of the colonel (Mae Marsh) furnish a love story. The disentangling of this comes about when a band of hostile Indians reach that part of the country. The three meet them several miles away from the fort and the scene is set for a most thrilling chase, perfectly constructed and full of incident and strategy. The story kills two reels and needs every foot. As a thrilling offering it is a sure feature and likely to make any audience enthusiastic. - The Moving Picture World, December 7, 1912
