It keeps us expecting the story
While this picture's final intention is not made clear for many scenes, it keeps us expecting the story and therefore keeps us interested. It deals with a ranchman and his wife, with their cowboys and a few neighbors, and turns on the jealousy awakened in the man by the mystery his wife makes of presents she is collecting for their wedding anniversary. The boys get wind of it and, for a joke, after removing "Dad's" bullets, "put a job up on him," make him think his wife (a cowboy in a skirt and wig) is kissing one of the punchers. The photography is clear enough; but is not as good as usual with Essanay prints. The whole makes fair entertainment. - The Moving Picture World, November 16, 1912
