The scenes described in the poem
This photoplay depicts the scenes described in the poem. David Gray is a hard working blacksmith, who, as he works, thinks with envy of the ease of the Rich Man. His dream of envy is suddenly disturbed by the clang of the village fire bell and the word spreads that the school house is afire. David Gray leaves his forge and runs up the road crazed with fear for the safety of his children. That night as The Rich Man sits in his home, wifeless and childless, David Gray stood looking down at his children, safe and sound asleep in their beds. - The Moving Picture World, April 25, 1914
