The acting is very good and the picture acceptable
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
