Storyline

John Denton, a wealthy lawyer, has for his private secretary. Robert Blair, an honest fellow who loves the former's daughter, Violet. Philip, her brother, falls into evil ways, contracts a gambling debt for which he is unable to pay without aid from his father. This he is afraid to ask. Muriel, Lawyer Denton's youngest child and a favorite with Robert, watches Robert open the safe one day and induces him to teach her the combination. Failing to manipulate the numbers right the child throws the paper which contains the numbers she had written down upon the floor. This paper falls into the hands of Philip who later rifles the safe to pay his debt. Robert being the only one knowing the safe besides the lawyer, is accused. Because Violet confesses her love for the young man her father does not prosecute but simply dismisses him from his service. Later, the housekeeper finds Philip's discarded cuff. Muriel, in the room at the time, observes the figures and takes it to her older sister. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Makes an interesting story
18 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Bob Daly produces this good drama, in which appear Frank Smith, Mr. McAvoy, Lynn Pratt, Fritzi Brunette and little Mimi Yvonne. The story is of a son who steals money from the house safe and permits his father's secretary to be blamed. The uncovering of the guilty person and the rehabilitation of the innocent make an interesting story. - The Moving Picture World, September 27, 1913
