Storyline

Two girls, happy in their humble but comfortable home, hear the call of the city. The younger decides to go to town, and despite the urgings of her sister and the old folks she carries out her determination, to the great distress of her sweetheart. Unlike many others who are lured by the life of the city, she soon finds employment in an artificial flower factory and there she falls in love with the assistant foreman, an ingratiating young fellow, who wins her affection only to gain possession of her small earnings on the pretense that he needs it to help furnish their little home. He does not come to the factory the next morning, but sends a note to the foreman telling him to give the job to someone else, as he does not need to work. The country girl is prostrated by the blow to her love and trust and, sick of the city, turns her steps towards home, where the old folks welcome her, glad that no worse harm has befallen her. Some time later the other girl, undaunted by her sister's fate... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The acting is in the best style of Lubin's players
4 April 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A picture detailing the experience of two country girls who go to the city, one after the other, and are both deceived by the same man. The country sweethearts meet the swindler and proceed to pummel him in most effective fashion. The principal interest in this picture is in the contrast of scene, showing graphically the sharp distinction between city and country. The personalities depicted are also sharply drawn, adding zest and a life touch to the picture that increases its value materially. The acting is in the best style of Lubin's players, and the photography is equally satisfactory. The interest of the picture is heightened by the fact that the usual thing does not happen to the two country girls. - The Moving Picture World, April 16, 1910
