Duplicity in a love affair, 15 March 2016
Author: deickemeyer from Chicago

Duplicity in a love affair is the principal motive of this western film. Two pals love the same girl. One is called home, but before he goes he places the ring on the girl's finger. He falls sick with fever and the doctor tells him he will die. He sends two letters, one to his pal and one to the girl. The pal gets both, reads his own, destroys the one to the girl. She believes the man false and marries the pal. He does not die, however, and as soon as he is well decides to go back and surprise her. He arrives just after she is married. Her father informs him that the best thing he can do is to leave the place. So he wanders away into the desert. The father meets the pal and upbraids him for his duplicity. The young wife hears it and tells him plainly that she cannot love a man who has done such a dastardly deed and commands him to go look the other man up. He is found in the desert nearly dead. By giving him all the water he has the pal restores him sufficiently to get him back, but is overcome in the attempt and dies himself. The stricken one is found barely alive and taken back. The death of her husband leaving the woman free, she straightway marries her first love. - The Moving Picture World, July 29, 1911
