Storyline

Kindness saved the sheriff and his wife, also a sack of gold which has been left in their care. Sewani, an Indian girl, tries to sell her wares, but is unsuccessful until she meets the sheriff, who purchases a pipe from her. This, he presents to his wife as a keepsake. That afternoon, Black Jake, a notorious outlaw is captured and lodged in jail. A bag of gold is taken from him, which the sheriff gives to his wife to keep until the following day. That night, two worthless fellows try to steal the money. They first capture the sheriff, take him to a shed, where they bind him. Sewani not forgetting the sheriff's kindness, hearing his cries for help, frees him. The bandits are outwitted by the sheriff's wife, who hides in a trunk until the bandits lift the cover, searching for the hidden gold. The sheriff's wife covers them with a revolver, until the sheriff returns with a posse and the men are taken into custody. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The first half is rather slow
29 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

A fair commercial offering made by Arthur Mackley and his usual company. There is nothing new in it and the first half is rather slow. This company is intelligent in acting and the photography is fair. The sheriff's wife hiding in the trunk and springing up at the robbers got a laugh. - The Moving Picture World, April 26, 1913
