Storyline

Mary Morris is employed in the toy section of a department store; her wages are small and she has to support a young sister who is an invalid. The child is very ill. The doctor has just told Mary that Nellie (her sister) must be kept constantly in the pure western air or she will die. Mary realizes the impossibility of this with her very limited means and is in consequence broken-hearted. It so happens that Jim Hunt, a very good-natured, wealthy rancher who has just arrived in the city for a visit, sees Mary on the street as she is going to work, and it is a case of love at first sight. He follows her to the store and enters with the intention of proposing right away but when he sees her at the counter of the toy department he fails to pull his courage up to the sticking point and covers his confusion by purchasing a big doll, which he takes with him to his hotel.

Not to be overlooked as a member of the cast is a kitten
31 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Fine comedy-drama. That some of it is supposed to be laid in the west but isn't does no harm. Walter Edwin is the director, and the chief players are Herbert Prior, Charles Ogle and Mabel Trunnelle. It is a pretty story. Not to be overlooked as a member of the cast is a kitten. It makes fun. - The Moving Picture World, March 8, 1913
