The acting of the lad is very commendable
11 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The waif was a boy, selling early morning papers, sleeping in the lumber yards. He was taken up by a policeman, who found him sick, and he was sent along with the youngsters on a fresh air trip to the country! We were shown in the early scenes that he was the grandson of a farmer, who had disowned his daughter because she had married the boy's father, an artist. The boy's grandfather lives near the fresh-air fund home and, catching the boy stealing apples, wounds him with a stone. He finds that the boy is his grandson. It wakens old memories. The acting of the lad is very commendable and the story is quite worthwhile. - The Moving Picture World, November 4, 1911
