When Jane and Margaret's father died, the two sisters found themselves without a cent in the world. Jane, a helplessly inefficient girl, would soon have succumbed to the force of adverse circumstances, but Margaret was made of different stuff. So, while Jane stayed at home and wept, Margaret went out, took a position as stenographer, and supported the little family. In the course of time, Jane married. If she had married a man with even a moderately respectable salary, Margaret might have been relieved of some portion of her burden.

The story has a slow, natural development
3 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

A film story written by Y. Spinner, covering several large lapses of time. Mary Fuller and Gertrude McCoy appear as two sisters. Margaret supports the other after her husband's death, giving up her own love. In after years the lover, portrayed by Charles Ogle, thinks of her. He finds the widowed sister and together they search for Margaret, who is dead when they locate her. The story has a slow, natural development and works convincingly up to its pitifully tragic close. - The Moving Picture World, January 24, 1914
