She takes to the road and when some brakemen attack her for stealing a ride a tramp comes to her rescue. They cast their lots together and the tramp protects her from many of the hardships of the road.

Everybody probably lives happily ever after
14 March 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A lively and interesting little skit, representing a girl driven from home by brutality, falling in with a supposed tramp, who turns out to be a millionaire in disguise. The girl, disguised as a boy, travels with the supposed tramp for a month. Then he goes back home, taking his companion with him. where her sex is disclosed. The usual result follows and everybody probably lives happily ever after. The picture is alive and touches upon a theme which is common enough and which might readily prove to be a basis for an extraordinary interest. With the life that the Lubin players put into it the picture is satisfactory and not infrequently is heartily applauded. - The Moving Picture World, March 19, 1910
