Storyline

The opening scene of the story is in a Nevada mining town, the hub of the gold center. Herbert Mills, a young chap from the east, with his partner, Walter Daniels, an experienced miner, are about to set out on a prospecting trip through the mountains. There is the usual hustle and bustle in loading the pack mules with their paraphernalia and the next scene finds them well on the trail, a scarcely discernible thread winding up through the mountains. Later in the day they draw up at a miner's hut and are attracted by the voice of an aged miner. They enter and find the old prospector very close to death. Daniels shows his surliness and hard-heartedness in advising his pal to let the old chap die, but Mills waves him aside and administers to the enfeebled old man. The latter is revived, but knowing that his life is fast drawing to a close, brings out a chart describing a mine, stating that it is very rich.

The result is a notable picture
16 June 2015 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A Western picture which will hold the interest from beginning to end. It has all the spirit and go which is so characteristic of the Essanay work, and at the same time it depicts life in the West so graphically and with so much appreciation of its essentials that one cannot fail to acquire a more accurate impression than ever before of the characteristics of that life. The Essanay players undertook their work sympathetically and they brought to its consummation a thorough knowledge of the requirements. The result is a notable picture, and one which will unquestionably be popular everywhere. It is a thousand pities that a picture of this character, suitable for continuous exhibition for several days, or possibly a week, should be subjected to the action of the daily change rule. It deserves more consideration than that. Managers should not hesitate to allow their patrons to see more of such films. It would add to the coin in their coffers. - The Moving Picture World, June 18, 1910
