Storyline

Nell, the sister of Colonel Wilson's wife, is in love with Private Walsh, one of the post telegraphers. The colonel is fond of Nell, and his wife, being of a jealous disposition, is uneasy. The colonel discovers Nell's love affair, and takes from Walsh's desk Nell's photograph autographed, "Lovingly, Nell." Mrs. Wilson sews a button on her husband's coat and finds the photograph. She overhears snatches of conversation in which the colonel is trying to persuade Nell to give up Walsh and misconstrues them, and in a fit of temper accuses the colonel of being in love with her sister.

Will make even veteran picturegoers sit up
31 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This two-reel offering is a strong "come hack" in the way of Indian fighting. The battle with the savages in the second reel is picturesque in the extreme and will make even veteran picturegoers sit up. The story also is a strong one. The colonel's wife becomes jealous of her own sister, through an odd but plausible situation. The girl, discovering this, marries her sweetheart and leaves the fort. She is captured by Indians and the hero saves her in a desperate encounter, during which he kills numerous redskins. A strong offering of the kind. - The Moving Picture World, August 30, 1913
