Storyline

Jim Colby, a young miner, and his wife Ruth are living in the mountains near a small town in a mining district. Colby is injured by an explosion while working his claim. When he fails to return that night his wife becomes alarmed and, taking a lantern, rides over to the claim and finds Jim seriously injured. She manages to get him home and calls the doctor, who treats Jim for some time. When the bill becomes late the doctor refuses to go to Jim. Ruth becomes desperate and holds up the stage, disguised as a man. She is wounded in the arm. While bandaging her arm, she discards a duster, which she leaves behind her in her hurry to get away. The sheriff trails her to her cabin and she is surprised to find Jim, who the sheriff is sure has committed the robbery, a very sick man, and the girl busy counting the spoils. He grabs her by the arm, to find that she is wounded and that the wounded arm is the same as the bloody sleeve of the duster. Ruth confesses and tells the sheriff her story. ...

The situations seemed greatly overdrawn
16 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A one reel story by Richard V. Spencer, in which the situations seemed greatly overdrawn. The wife, because her husband is ill, dresses up as a man and holds up the stage. The crime is traced to her door, but the sheriff relents when he sees that her husband is dying and makes no arrest. The good photography is the strongest feature of this particular offering. - The Moving Picture World, November 1, 1913
