Short summary

After the death of her husband, Mrs. Kendall found the management of the ranch, with its attendant responsibilities, a source of worry. Her daughter, recently returned from an Eastern boarding school, could not assist her and, although the cowboys in her employ were faithful, the ranch needed an executive head. John Morgan, a neighboring ranchman, had long cast envious eyes upon the widow's increasing herd of cattle, and desired to marry the daughter in order to obtain possession of her ranch. He offers to manage her affairs for her, but the widow distrusts him and refuses his offer. Mrs. Kendall finally secures the services of Jim Stevenson, a manly young cowboy, and he is introduced to the boys as the new manager. They take him out on the range that he may become better acquainted with his new duties. They encounter John Morgan, who is ordered off the range by the new manager. Morgan determines to force his attention on Hazel Kendall and hurries to the ranch house. He finds Hazel ...

    The great open flume that carries irrigating waters passes through the ranch of this story's heroine (Miss Bush). An unscrupulous neighbor poisons this because the heroine won't marry him and he would like to have her land and cattle. The cattle drink of the water in the flume near the place where the bag of poison has been left and some of them die. Her cowboys suspect the cause and after the new manager has been shot by the poisoner, there is a man chase over a dusty hillside. This ends in a pistol fight. The villain has crawled along the trestle that carries the flume over a valley. A good many shots are fired and the bad man falls dead into the flume. The scenes and views are very interesting. Some of them are too evidently "being played" .to be as effective as they might have been, but the acting is very good and the picture acceptable. - The Moving Picture World, August 26, 1911
