Storyline

John Stanton, a miner his wife and children, a son and a daughter live in a cabin about a mile from Stanton's claim. One day the boy discovers several stones which he carries back to show to the father. They prove to be nuggets, one more valuable than the rest. The father takes the nugget and cuts it in half giving one part to the boy and the other to the girl. The father starts out to work one morning and takes the boy with him. While at work the cabin is attacked by Indians, who kill the mother and set fire to the house. The father hears the fight and starts for the cabin. He arrives and gives the Indians battle. He is mortally wounded. And the Indians depart, taking the girl with them. In the meantime the boy gets worried at his father's continued absence and starts for home. He arrives just before the father dies and the father tells him to be on the watch for his sister and find her if possible. Later the boy is found by a party of prospectors and cared for.

We have reviewed a great number of pictures like it

The two children have each one-half of the split nugget. It is an Indian story and we have reviewed a great number of pictures like it. The author is Wilbert Melville; but surely be deserves no great credit. The players are commendable: Laura Nevins, Irene Hunt, Henry King, Carl von Schiller, and Joseph Holland. The backgrounds and photography will be liked. - The Moving Picture World, April 26, 1913
