This is an extraordinary picture
A two-reel melodramatic picture that is certainly a "gripper" and clean in moral tone. It concerns two families whose selfish fathers, one who has a beautiful daughter, for the sake of money, and the other to place his son in the better class of society, induce their children to marry. It is a marriage of convenience; a loveless and an unhappy one. They are sensible enoiigh to come to an understanding, however, and conceal it from their friends. The husband proves to be a gentleman in all respects, courteous to his wife at all times. The son's father is stricken with death at the wedding feast and the son becomes master of the mine. A strike occurs and the mine is dynamited. At the risk of his life the young owner saves some miners, and in turn the wife saves him from death. This brings love to their hearts and happiness. This is an extraordinary picture in novel effects and well worth seeing. The acting was superb. The mob scenes finely handled. - The Moving Picture World, February 28, 1914
