Storyline

Tom Spangler, boss of Dog Iron ranch, has been married secretly to Mary Bailey, the daughter of a rancher in another part of the state. He writes Mary not to join him at Dog Iron, as they had planned, because the owner has forbidden the men to have their wives at the round-up. A few days later a dark boy presents himself at the ranch and asks for work. Spangler knows his wife disguised in sombrero and puma-skin trousers, but he hires "Bobby Jones" as horse wrangler. Sid Suddath, an old hand at Bailey's, arrives and recognizes the daughter of his former employer. He proceeds to get familiar, and "Bobby" resents this. One day the cowboys go in swimming. The horse wrangler declines to join them, and returns to the camp. Suddath follows her into a tent, and after a struggle, "Bobby" defending herself with a cheap clasp knife, stabs her tormentor. The sheriff is informed. Spangler refuses to surrender "the young cut-throat." It looks as though the posse and the ranchers must fight it out, ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The story is a bit "suggestive"
7 October 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The title of this two part offering is not easily understood. The story is a bit "suggestive." No wives are to be allowed on the round up, not even the wife of the foreman. She dresses as a man and her husband gives her a job with the bunch. The bad man of the outfit finds out her secret, but doesn't know who she is. In a fairly dramatic second reel, he waits his chance, but she hits him with the loaded end of a quirt and kills him. In order to escape the penalty, she has to tell her story and then the killed man is shown to be one "wanted" by the sheriff. The photography and scenes are full of interest. - The Moving Picture World, June 27, 1914
