Rose Scott is a stenographer in the office of wealthy John Mackey and is wooed by the clerk there, one Merwin. But Mr. Mackey himself takes a fancy to her and she becomes Mrs. John Mackey. Ten years elapse and we find the Mackeys and their little daughter Ruth on a pleasure trip. Ruth makes friends with the hotel switchboard operator and to amuse herself uses the 'phone in her own room to talk to the little lady at the "board." For the first time since the old office days, the Mackeys meet Merwin. Mackey finds his time very much occupied with his business projects.

With Ruth they go walking through the pretty city, for her husband is too busy with his affairs to do even that. So Merwin "fills in" nicely as an escort and makes himself very agreeable to the mother and daughter. But Merwin's designs are not innocent. He tells the wife that he wants her to desert her husband.

This is fine and is made as convincing as can be
18 October 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A picture artistically made and very pretty; in it a mother, who is neglected by her busy husband, is tempted to be untrue, but is saved by her baby whose voice she hears over the telephone. This is fine and is made as convincing as can be. It was brought about by a little plot of a quick-witted and warm-heated telephone girl. When we say that Miss Marguerite Snow plays the mother, Miss Florence La Badie the telephone girl, and little Miss Helen Eline the child, and that all three play as well as they always do when playing a good situation, we have praised the picture highly. It is a very commendable, human release. The scenes, both those that are set and the exteriors, are well photographed and unusually pretty. It is a sure feature picture, one that can hardly fail to please everywhere. - The Moving Picture World, April 6, 1912
