The subtitles don't help much
A sister sacrifices herself to her brother's displeasure rather than own up to having, after an earthquake, substituted an orphan in place of her brother's child, who had been killed. Her object in the substitution was to keep him from breaking his heart. But the story, in the picture, isn't wholly clear, and the subtitles don't help much. The photography, too, hinders by not being perfect. - The Moving Picture World, March 15, 1913
