There is nothing in particular to recommend the story
Mary Charleson herein portrays the elder daughter of a farmer. She is the family drudge, with aspirations for an education. She saves money to pay a year's tuition in the School of Arts and Sciences, missions of life of which she sees in daydreams. The illness and passing out of a farm horse, old Dobbin was a good actor, too, changes things. Her money goes for the purchase of a horse. Author Wing had the courage of his convictions, and left the girl still the same old drudge. There is nothing in particular to recommend the story as entertainment. - The Moving Picture World, August 16, 1913
