Mrs. Appleby, whose husband is more interested in his books than her happiness, took the first train to Reno to obtain a divorce. She left a note on the table to this effect, which certainly brought Mr. Appleby's brains to a realization of what he had done. He too took a train to Reno, followed by Mr. Brooks, who was bestowing his attentions upon Mrs. Appleby, during her husband's negligence. Mrs. Appleby, after residing in Reno the required number of days by law, secured a divorce. Her ex-husband and Mr. Brooks, who called upon her wore unceremoniously turned out of her apartments. Then she started for home. Mr. Appleby's sorrow was turned into joy one evening when he read in the papers of a decision handed down by the courts to the effect that a divorce procured in Reno by a certain person was null and void.

Every smile and laugh in this very amusing comedy rises from the situation; some of its action seems a bit forced, but there is nothing that is "tacked on"; most of it seems natural and most of it is clever. It is good-natured, and the fun comes from putting Mr. Brown (Mr. Johnson plays the part), a very simpleminded, elemental man in a social atmosphere very up-to-date and sophisticated. Brown is such a bookworm that Mrs. Brown (Miss Lawrence) is exasperated into taking up residence in the divorce colony at Reno. Brown follows. Mrs. Brown hasn't yet been able to get her papers and Brown is, of course, still her husband. He won't accept the situation. It is a very acceptable comedy. Some in the gallery may not appreciate all of it, nor understand every one of its allusions, but it is a very clever picture. It will be popular with people who know a thing or two. - The Moving Picture World, November 18, 1911
