Storyline

The Little Hades school on the plains in Wyoming needs a teacher. Miss Williams, a very pretty eastern girl, whom the ranchmen hear of through an advertisement, is selected. Little Hades Valley is shy on young women, so Miss Williams is given a warm reception. Each of the cowboys, in his bashful way, tries to make love to the new teacher. Miss Williams does not lead them on. However, she manages to have a lot of innocent amusement at the boys' expense. After a couple of months Jack Knight, her fiancé, comes to Little Hades Valley. The cowboys are disgusted at the way they have carried on and for not asking if Miss Williams was engaged in the first place. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

This school teacher and cowboy comedy an acceptable feature picture
15 October 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Freshness in its situation, and humanity in its acting make this school teacher and cowboy comedy an acceptable feature picture. The "epidemic" was not measles, nor mumps, it was just ordinary misery. There was only one pretty teacher and a dozen good looking cowboys. Big Bill was the first affected and the kindly teacher coddled him. The other boys soon caught it and were all down at once. The teacher saw through the millstone and prescribed a big dose of something bitter and no dinner. The ranch cook gives as much fun, for the time he is in the picture, as even the teacher. The scene in the kitchen when the boys try to get a snack behind his back is very good. The photographs are good enough. - The Moving Picture World, March 30, 1912
