This ending is more satisfactory
A story which has for a background the great Mojave desert of California. The principal character is a little girl, scarcely more than a baby, daughter of the sheriff. She is found by an outlaw whom the sheriff is pursuing and taken to her father's home. The terrible sufferings of the desert are too much for the man and he succumbs before he can be aided. The ending is commended. It never seems quite right for a sheriff to break the laws by allowing an outlaw to escape, as has been represented in some cases, merely because he performed some service for which the official might have felt indebted to him. This ending is more satisfactory. The sheriff is left under no obligation and the outlaw is removed from society which he menaces. - The Moving Picture World, March 11, 1911
