Storyline

Jack Barnes, a young business man, reckoned as "a live wire" in the ranks of the Smart Set, is unfortunately addicted to the questionable pleasures of a great city. He holds a mortgage on Farmer Vale's property and he thinks seriously of foreclosing, but decides to run out in his auto and talk it over before acting. He stops by the district schoolhouse where Mary Vale is the teacher, asking directions as to the farm. Without revealing her identity, she gives him the information, and he is at once much attracted by her. At the farm, Barnes is so severely injured by a vicious stallion that he is put to bed at the farmhouse. Mary, the daughter, whom he met at the school, volunteers to be his nurse. The presence of this fine, pure girl acts like a tonic and a benediction, and makes a deep impression upon the man's character.

It does not strongly convince, because of little things
28 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A country romance. The only thing new in it is the method in which the man's better self appears on the opposite side of the table to argue and plead with his lower self. It was written and produced by Lem Parker. Thomas Santschi plays a man who loves a country girl so well that he gives back to her father a mortgage he holds, but, in the city, enjoys the company of fast women. It does not strongly convince, because of little things. That was a poor kind of photograph for a simple farmer's daughter. The farmer himself is not like a real farmer. Mr. Santschi and the farmer's wife are the only well-cast figures. - The Moving Picture World, August 23, 1913
