Storyline

The wife was happy, for her husband was well-to-do, and she liked living on a farm.

At the capital the man met numerous natty officials, and he learned from them how to dress and carry himself in good society. The wife saw the wives of these men, but seemingly had no ambition to be stylishly groomed as these were, in fact.

The woman left her husband's roof an hour later, taking her baby with her, and vowed she would never return to him again. The husband accepted her decision.

Has the Thanhouser hall-mark in the beauty of its scenes
10 March 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A very pretty picture. It contains matter hard to believe possible; but it is well made and acceptably acted and has the Thanhouser hall-mark in the beauty of its scenes. The story's climax comes at a county fair and at its baby show. The prize baby's father, who, long before had separated from his wife, is made judge of babies and awards the prize to the "Thanhouser Kidlet," who deserved it, not knowing that it is his own. The kiddie had merely wandered in. Her mother thinks her lost and is wildly searching the fairgrounds among the crowds. The result is a reconciliation. A good, popular picture. Florence La Badie plays the baby's mother. - The Moving Picture World, November 16, 1912
