When the vest is stolen from a clothesline by a tramp and a search is begun it is developed that there are duplicates of the garment in the neighborhood. It was hardly necessary for the director to feature in his exterior view and his interior as well a particular brand of collars. - The Moving Picture World, September 27, 1913
