Storyline

Rose, a nurse at the Central Hospital, becomes interested in hygienics and devotes her leisure hours to study. The ambitious girl discovers that her health is becoming impaired and she is advised to take a vacation. She therefore visits her cousin Lilly in New York and improvises a laboratory where she continues her studies. Lilly, giving most of her attention to social affairs, is inclined to ridicule her serious-minded cousin but Dr. Leslie, who has been very attentive to Lilly, finds that the visitor is an unusual young woman and soon his affections are transferred. Naturally a barrier arises between the cousins and Rose is about to leave Lilly's house when a series of unexpected incidents delay her departure from the city. Angelina, a young Italian mother, finds that she cannot properly care for her sick baby as she earns a livelihood by selling lace from door to door. She leaves the infant in the care of its grandmother and while offering her wares to Rose, tells her pitiful ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A good, freshly-imagined story
25 June 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A picture of the better kind with human interest, substantial freshness and some good acting. The author, whom we don't know, deserves a good deal of credit. He has provided a good, freshly- imagined story and the producer seems to have felt that it was worth taking trouble with, for he has made it pretty effective. Its heroine is a scientific nurse whose charitable and sympathetic nature is contrasted with that of her rich cousin, a rather empty-hearted girl. In the end, the nurse gets her cousin's fiancé, a desirable young doctor away from her. That this ending can be foreseen a bit too early is the picture's slight, but noticeable defect. Alice Joyce plays the nurse; Tom Moore, the doctor; Leslie Scott, the rich girl; Mrs. La Varnie (a finely drawn old Italian woman), the grandmother of the sick baby; Hazel Neason, the sick baby's mother and James K. Ross, its father. All the adventure that comes to the nurse in her kindly ministration to these Italians is fresh and deeply interesting. We commend it almost entirely; it's a good picture. The photography is first class. - The Moving Picture World, February 1, 1913
