Sheriff Coverdale of Custer County, Wyoming, visits his relatives in New York City. During his stay he joins one of the local clubs there. One night at the club, several of the members ask the sheriff to tell them a good story of some of his experiences in the west. Sheriff Coverdale tells them he had a prisoner once, who like all other prisoners, claimed he was innocent. The prisoner, Tom Racey, had a scheming wife with a remarkable personality and clever ability. Her shrewd manner assisted her materially in gaining entrance to the jail, where her husband had been lodged. While the sheriff's back was turned she handed Tom a note.

The tale is worthwhile and very entertaining
16 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A story of the West, told in a gilded city bar by a sheriff to three club men. It is about a prisoner of his who got away. The narrator is, of course, the principal actor in the tale; but the barroom scene is thrown back every now and again to keen the spectator among the group of listeners. This is commendable; it makes the picture more intimate. The tale is worthwhile and very entertaining. We have seen another picture in which the pursued managed to deceive his pursuer by a seemingly mortal wound painted on his breast; but the picture is full of freshness and a very acceptable offering. It will be enjoyed. - The Moving Picture World, February 15, 1913
