Storyline

Dick, foreman of the Way Up Ranch, learns that Bess, the new school teacher, is his employer's niece. At the dance which takes place the day following her arrival, Dick asks her to dance with him, but as they have not been formally introduced, she refuses. The next morning Bess mistakes Dick for the cook, and orders him to prepare the lunch which she takes to school. Dick, appreciating the situation, fills her lunch pail with raw onions, eggs, just from the nest, and a loaf of stale bread. When noon time arrives. Bess is indignant at the trick played upon her, and when Dick comes with the buckboard to take her home, she refuses to ride with him, declaring she will walk. Dick gives Bess his gun to scare away the Indians. He drives off and Bess, very much afraid, starts on the long journey home.

The audience very plainly enjoyed it
25 October 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A good farce comedy, romantic and pleasingly acted by acceptable players. It is very amusing in its picturing of a certain kind of young lady (the schoolm'am) who is not easy to court except by the man who knows how. There was a cowboy in the village who did know. It is fresh. The schoolm'am seemed almost as much afraid of the pistol the cowboy left with her as a protection against Indians (there were none), as she was of the red men, and her way of carrying it is very laughable. She had refused to ride home from the school with the cowboy, merely because she was spunky. The audience very plainly enjoyed it. The photography is pretty good. It is a fair feature or a very strong Saturday night filler. - The Moving Picture World, April 20, 1912
