Storyline

Jim Carson, a young Tennessee mountaineer, and Millie James, a mountain girl, are worried over the condition of Jim's mother. Millie nurses her tenderly. Jim's worry is increased by a note which he has received from John Calhoun, a miserly landowner, stating that, unless he pays the overdue rent on the shack which they occupy, that Jim will be evicted. Realizing that terrible shock would be dangerous to his mother, Jim goes out and attempts to borrow the money. He meets with no success.

Some good scenic features
2 September 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-reel story with a conventional opening in which the hero is out of work and his bed-ridden mother is ejected by the landlord. The mother dies and the son shoots the landlord. Later he is captured by a posse and left on his horse with a rope about his neck till sundown, when the horse will move away and hang him. A barbed wire keeps the horse from leaving and the heroine arrives in time to save the youth from death. The story has some good scenic features and is well-photographed. It makes an average offering. - The Moving Picture World, February 13, 1915
