A story of domestic difficulties which can be duplicated often enough, 8 October 2015
Author: deickemeyer from Chicago

A story of unreasonable jealousy on the part of a wife who imagines her husband is devoting too much attention to other women. The best part of the picture is the way a ten-year-old girl stops the discord by going away, leaving letters that she has been kidnapped by the Black Hand. This causes the parents to forget their differences in the search for the lost child. When she returns and explains her ruse they see the folly of their quarrels and agree to live in peace. Without any semblance of dramatic crisis, the picture tells a story of domestic difficulties which can be duplicated often enough to appear real to most of those in almost any audience, consequently it will prove attractive in a majority of audiences. - The Moving Picture World, December 17, 1910
