Storyline

Katie Mooney comes home from school one afternoon just in time to hear the doctor say to her widowed mother that her infant baby sister must have better air and food or it will not live for long. Katie is very fond of the little mite and knows that her mother had a hard time to make a living for the three, so she determines that she will help to secure money enough to get the baby what is required. The doctor when he leaves playfully leaves a newspaper in her hand in which she sees an advertisement for messenger girls at a millinery shop. She secures the position and it is understood that she is to run errands after school hours. On one of her trips she makes the acquaintance of little Florence Chester, a small miss of about seven who has wandered away from her street and gets lost. Katie takes her home. She meets her several times afterward and a great friendship springs up between them. At the millinery shop, Katie being the youngest is more or less imposed upon by the other girls. ...

Has a fair measure of dramatic suspense
20 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Edna Hamel makes an effective appeal in this picture as a poor little girl, a mother's helper, whose natural kindliness is rewarded in the end. The story is carefully made and has a fair measure of dramatic suspense; there is only one place where, so it seems to us, it is weak. The treatment of the little girl in the shop of the milliner where she is working after school as a messenger seems conventional and more in the atmosphere of a select school than of a shop; the poor seldom treat each other so meanly. Fellow workers in the shop would probably have helped Edna, not wantonly caused her expense; they would have known how it feels themselves. The author, Charles M. Seay, deserves credit for a human story that makes good entertainment. Kathleen Coughlin has the role of a younger girl whom Edna finds lost and sees home. Bliss Milford plays Edna's mother; William Bechtel, the doctor, and Alice Washburn, the boss milliner. - The Moving Picture World, January 4, 1913
