Storyline

The general store at Scrogginses' Corner is the favorite lounging and meeting place for the citizens of the locality. On an eventful day a rich couple call at the store and ask Si Bunny, the storekeeper, permission to leave a bundle there, to be called for on their return. The storekeeper discovers that the bundle contains an infant. He takes it to his home and brings it up as his own. When the child has grown up to be an attractive young girl. Lee Livingston, a traveling salesman, makes love to her and induces her to leave home with him, on pretense of a visit to his folks. Old Si is broken hearted and would have killed Livingston if he had not been prevented. She discovers on her arrival in the city that Livingston is a rascal. She repulses him, but ashamed to go home, makes her living as an artist's model. The young artist for whom she poses falls in love with her and proposes marriage. She will not consent until she has returned to Si Bunny, the only parent she has ever known. The... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The story is an emotional, homely melodrama
29 October 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This is distinctly Bunny's picture and he plays in it a delightful part, the very human storekeeper. The story is an emotional, homely melodrama, and the storekeeper's role is in kind much like that of Denman Thompson, as Josh Wittcome in "The Old Homestead." John Bunny plays it very effectively, giving much humor to it; but putting over its emotional, pathetic moments with power. There was one time when some one in the audience sobbed. The story is old fashioned. The storekeeper's foster daughter, whom he had brought up and loved deeply, was enticed away to the city by the drummer. She thought she could go on the stage and make money to help her old foster father, who had endorsed a protested note. The old man's bitter sorrow is very truthfully shown. He keeps a light in his window for her and, in time, she comes back unharmed. Mr. Bunny is fairly well supported. Miss Edith Halleran plays Alice, the girl; Mr. Delaney plays the drummer. It is a feature; but it is not critic proof, especially in small things. One scene, a hotel in the city, is poor. The camera work is good. - The Moving Picture World, April 27, 1912
