Storyline

When a pretty school teacher comes to the settlement to teach the young ideas how to shoot, where the older ones have been doing it with such deadly accuracy that the graveyard is almost as well tenanted as the town, it causes some sensation. Pretty women, brainy beauties and marriageable opportunities are so rare in the thinly populated wild western districts, that a candidate having the two former attributes, is sure to arouse admiration that will bring about conflicts of rivals.

The picture will mildly interest
6 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

A comedy showing how the schoolma'am fooled the school trustees who made a collective offer of marriage. When it came her turn to shoot she fired directly at the camera, which apparently would indicate that the cartridge in her pistol was like the ones in the weapons of the men, blank, and that the bullet which smashed the bottle was fired from the side by some one else. The picture will mildly interest. - The Moving Picture World, November 22, 1913
