Storyline

Paul Shields, a young minister, is in love with the pretty school teacher, Mary Holmes, who doesn't encourage him. Calling for her at the close of school, she is pleased to accompany him to a prayer meeting on board a ship. The minister preaches to the men as Jack Ames, the first mate, and Mary walk off on a tour of the ship. A week elapses and the friendship of Ames and Mary has ripened into love. A party is given the minister and Mary enters with Amos, presenting a bunch of flowers. They leave the parsonage and Ames proposes. Mary agrees and they return to the minister. The request she makes is like a death blow. Stopping all merriment, he performs the ceremony. As everybody leaves he reels in his chair. A year later, Ames, having grown tired of life on land, secures a position as mate on a turpentine carrier. He tells his wife of his plans: she hesitates at first on account of their baby, but after a little persuasion by Ames, she agrees, as he has had little success on land. ...

The acting this time is poor
14 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

We have reviewed another picture with this same plot within three years and if our memory holds it was much more convincing and entertaining then than now. The acting this time is poor in some of its important scenes and this takes the edge off the story. The producer is George Nicholas. Edwin Carew and Ormi Hawley have the romantic leads. The photography is fair. - The Moving Picture World, August 9, 1913
