A strong temperance drama acted by the stars of this company. Miss Leonard appears in calico as a drunkard's wife and plays the part quite as successfully as she has played other emotional roles before. The drunkard is well acted, though there is a lack of vigor, perhaps, in some of the scenes where he is represented as being under the influence of drink. The wife's appeal to the saloonkeeper is a dramatic bit of work. He thinks of his own dead baby and induces the husband to go with him. There the scene worked out over the dead child's but leaves scarcely a dry eye in the house. The pledge follows, and there is a reward in the smile of the poor wife when she hears of the change. The picture is meritorious and deserves the applause it receives. There is, however, room for improvement in the mechanical department. - The Moving Picture World, March 18, 1911
