Storyline

Dr. Jameson, a widower, has a daughter of five, who he feels is sadly in need of a mother. After some thought the doctor decides to propose to Nan Warren, a young western woman, working a claim alone on the hillside. His courtship is successful as she accepts him but hardly has he left the house when a young man, an old acquaintance of the girl, enters and tells her of his love. Jameson finds them making love and realizes that he must give up his claim to the girl. A month after the marriage Nan's husband is hurt at the mine and the doctor is sent for. He refuses to go. Nan herself comes and pleads with him and he finally consents to go. It is a difficult operation and temptation comes when he realizes that the slightest slip of the scalpel will cause the man's death. Why not? The doctor suddenly realizes the enormity of the crime he is about to commit, sets resolutely to work, and the operation is successful. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

There is a very pleasing child's part
4 June 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

There is a very pleasing child's part in this love story of a widower, a frontier doctor. The child is his daughter and consoles him when he lost the woman who had engaged herself to him. A younger man won her away from him. This man was hurt a little later. The doctor knows that he could have killed him, but cured him nevertheless. His latter theme has been used several times and it isn't pleasing in itself. A new player takes the part of the young woman. She is, herself, pleasing, but does not have a great faculty for the expression that makes a picture effective. Perhaps she has come from the stage where the voice is depended upon and experience will teach her the difference, for she shows intelligence. The doctor and his little girl were put over in fine shape. - The Moving Picture World, December 23, 1911
