Storyline

The visit of old Daddy Time is constantly changing this little old world of ours, and it changes us too, and as the years roll by Fate casts us over the endless domains of the globe, some near to and some far from the fanciful spot we revere as "home." An iota in the great human plan, Harry Reid became lost to his loved ones, and advertisement by the most modem methods extant failed to bring him into the light of the love of his family. It was just a freak of circumstance that another man cruelly undertook to wound the hearts of the mourning ones by masquerading as the lost man. He might have played his part successfully, too, if the same fate that sent Jack into the endless chasm of oblivion had not wrought a miracle still more wondrous. Now, dear reader, you are waiting for the saddest part of this tale. You are to be disappointed, however, for there is no sad part to it. Strange to say, this film is a roaring farce, full of funny situations. Do you see the opportunity for fun? Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It is amusing, but there have been a good many funnier pictures
30 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

A comedy that developed when the old people on the farm advertised for their long-lost son who had run away to sea years before. A stranded actor needing a home, saw the advertisement first and applied for the position as wanderer. He didn't have the right mark on his chest and was kicked out. However, he had found out what the mark was and painted it on a tramp who was accepted, but wouldn't help the actor, so the actor, seeing the true son passing, gets him to hurry up. By the time the son arrives, the mark has worn off the tramp. It is well acted and the settings are real, homely farm scenes. It is amusing, but there have been a good many funnier pictures. - The Moving Picture World, December 9, 1911
