This two-reel special is a true feature and supplies the demand for red-blood action. From the first, the story is wide-awake, although when we see the sheriff and the revenue man coming to blows on account of the girl, the hold weakens for a moment; for it doesn't convince. But we are now given a shiver of horror. A snake coils around the feet of the heroine (the house was filled with shudders). And following this, comes the sharpest kind of action up to the climax in which the illicit whiskey distillers, with the sheriff who has brought the snake-bitten girl back to the cabin, are besieged by the drunken Indians. The sheriff has to creep out and get the cavalry. In the end. after the moonshiners are rescued from the now burning cabin by the troops, it is found that the evidence against them has been destroyed. Tue brave moonshiner has won the sympathy of the spectators and it may be assumed, in a picture, the right to go free. Octavia Handworth plays the girl and it was plain that she pleased the audience. Crane Wilbur plays the revenue man. The photography is very good. - The Moving Picture World, April 12, 1913
