He warns him against the cranky old maid who lives next door. Miss Tabathia going away to visit her sister, warns her niece, Nellie, to look out for the mean old bachelor next door. Carl arrives with his fox terrier pup. The dog on an exploring expedition locates the cat next door, which he promptly trees. Nellie resents the pup's visit and writes a note to her neighbor, telling him to keep his dog at home. The next morning Carl replies and a quarrel takes place over the garden wall without each other's identity being disclosed. The pup makes another visit. Carl, searching for his dog, discovers he has a charming neighbor. The next day the kitten goes visiting and is returned by Carl with the natural consequence. Carl and Nellie become friends with the usual result, the young people are betrothed. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The picture was not always convincing enough to be interesting
2 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

It was this reviewer's impression that several times in this romantic comedy, what may be called the picture's humanity was sacrificed to making it funny. Were not the letter from the young girl (niece of the old maid who lived over the wall) and the young clubman's reply, which he supposed was to reach a woman much older than himself, out of character? They were very ill-bred letters for young people to write to older people and didn't heighten our sympathy for them. Later, when the two have become friends and, as the leader says, "more than friends," his puppy and her kitten are before them and each lifts one of them up. In the hero, that way of expressing affection for his puppy seemed not quite masculine. The picture was not always convincing enough to be interesting, nor was the photography always good. In the second scene it was poor. - The Moving Picture World, August 19, 1911
