A self-sacrificing young woman, living in a small village, can have the handsome young blacksmith for the asking.

Somewhat vague as to details
19 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An unusual conception of considerable strength, though leaving several things to the imagination. Phillips Smalley, as the boarder, tries to keep the younger sister from taking the older girl's lover. He comes near succeeding in this, but in the end it develops that the older girl loves himself. Somewhat vague as to details, but above the average film in strength of conception and development. - The Moving Picture World, March 29, 1913
