The young heiress is walking with her sweetheart in the grounds of her mansion, seemingly happy, while on the roadway, with but a wall dividing, stroll the poor young couple. What a contrast. Here are four young souls starting on their paths of life so divergent. What may we assume? The one couple, with wealth and position, hence ease and happiness seems the outlook: the other couple, poor and uncultured, their future would seem sorrow, labor and privation. But how fallible is the prophecy. Ten years later we meet them again. Mabel, the heiress, has been the wife of Tom Darrell all this while, as has been Ruth the wife of Steve. It is the occasion of a house party at the Darrell mansion and Ruth's heart grows sad and envious at the sight of the lavishness of the affair as she views it from a distance.

Sympathetically acted and admirably photographed

Such pictures should assist in creating a sentiment that will place a true value upon wealth in its relation to human happiness and its influence upon life. The story is told in the strong contrast of the lives of two girls, one married to a man of wealth, the other to a poor young man. The world will say instantly that the one with the money is happy. Ten years later the scene changes and the wealthy girl, deserted by her husband, weeps alone over the deathbed of her child. The poor girl, surrounded by her children and loving husband, shows every indication of happiness. No further explanation is necessary. It is enough, perhaps, to say this much. One's imagination can supply the rest. Sympathetically acted and admirably photographed, this picture deserves the highest commendation. - The Moving Picture World, April 9, 1910
