Never fails to interest
A very good story with a fine comedy punch at the end. The central character is a simple member of a Western town whom the cowboys think weak-minded. Three desperadoes are making things unpleasant for the community and have just killed the old sheriff. The new man is the only one who has the spunk to take the job, and the way he makes good will tickle the average spectator very much. It begins in a leisurely fashion, and takes its own gate all through; but never fails to interest. One drawback, its poor photography, is noticeable; but the story is clear and that is the chief point in this offering. Arthur Mackley's company produced it. - The Moving Picture World, June 14, 1913
