Storyline

Jack finds a way to see Bess after her father ships her off to boarding school. Jack follows her and manages to get in communication with her by climbing a tree outside the window of her classroom. Bess manages to escape from the Preceptress's vigilance long enough to tell Jack the girls are to have a sheet and pillowcase party that evening. If he will come, they will see that he is furnished with the pillow and sheet so that he may be with them without fear of detection. Jack agrees to this plan and is on hand at the appointed hour. The girls soon have him disguised in the regulation outfit, the same as everybody else. Everything is going along swimmingly, when Jack, forgetting himself, sticks his feet out beneath the sheet. The Preceptress comes in and detects Jack's presence. He is told to make himself scarce and the girls are sent to their rooms in disgrace. A short time afterwards, when all is quiet, and the Principal thinks she is alone, Professor Dinkey cautiously approaches ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Not a great deal that is new or truly fresh
26 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

There is not a great deal that is new or truly fresh in this picture of a boarding school love story, and the agreeableness of the players alone keeps it from falling flat. Anna Stewart, who plays the heroine, is very pretty and seems to be new in pictures, but she is not yet a great actress. Frank Bennett plays her lover, and Frank Currier, her objecting father who sends the girl away to the school, kept by Flora Finch, the inimitable. Charles Eldridge has a small role as one of the school's professors, and there are a number of girls. The audience found it amusing. - The Moving Picture World, April 12, 1913
