A business story in which the young husband endangers his own and his wife's property by taking an option on a valuable plot of ground. The buyer fails him and he writes a note to his wife that he will die by his own hand at five o'clock. The clock stops and the buyer changes his mind, so he is saved. This type of plot has been shown many times. In this instance it is well acted and is helped materially by smooth photography. - The Moving Picture World, November 29, 1913
