Date Of Production
In this five-reel rural melodrama, Sam Purdy receives a summons to testify before a grand jury. Not realizing that the matter concerns sheep-stealing, he assumes it to concern the murder of his brother, Will. Conscience-stricken, Sam relates a long tale about how Will had framed him for bank robbery, then blackmailed him. Sam further confesses that he killed Will in a fight. However, the jury is sympathetic and refuses to indict Sam. The next witness is Will, very much alive, who is eventually convicted of both sheep-stealing and blackmail.
