Storyline

Jack Lewis and his wife, Helen, live on a ranch. She goes away on a short visit and he accompanies her to the station. No sooner has he waved her "good-bye" than he meets Jack King. Jack Lewis invites him to come to the ranch. Some days later Jack King receives a letter from his wife, Dora, telling him that she and the baby will surprise him soon with a visit. Jack King puts his wife and the baby's picture on the writing desk, leaves the letter on the table and hurries out. Helen Lewis, a somewhat jealous woman, cuts short her visit and returns while both men are out. She finds both the picture and the letter, which, being addressed to "My dear Jack," makes her suppose that her husband has another wife and baby. Enraged, she rushes to her father's ranch, not far away. He snatches up his shotgun, and together they start for the Lewis ranch. In the meanwhile, Dora King has arrived with the baby.

There's a struggle for a short gun; but the tragedy is averted
15 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

The Jacks are played respectively by Geo. Gebhardt and Jack Conway; their wives are played by Victoria Forde and Eugenie Forde. The latter, as played, is of a jealous nature and without inquiring for reasons takes offense because of the other Jack's wife and baby. She is given plenty of reason for her awakened suspicions and she also gets her father excited over it. There's a struggle for a short gun; but the tragedy is averted. It has one of those climaxes during which one fairly aches to have someone in the picture "cuss" and tell the truth and end the suspense. The photographs are very good. The picture is a good filler. - The Moving Picture World, March 30, 1912
