Storyline

Her parents were anxious and believed she would be advanced in the social scale by marrying a young banker, who is very attentive to her. The girl, however, regarded this suitor as a pin head. At a dance one evening she met a real man, and it was a case of love at first sight on both sides. There was nothing slow about the new suitor and within a month he had won the girl's consent to their marriage. When he asked her parents for her hand, however, trouble ensued, because when questioned as to his business he had to admit that he was a farmer. The thought of their child as a farmer's wife was too much for the old folks, and they forbade the match. The girl was steadfast in her love, but at first refused to elope with the young man.

Made clever use of these modern farm attributes
29 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A very pleasing number, with Florence LaBadie and William Russell in the leads. She falls in love with him, knowing he is a farmer, but her first glimpses of his model dairy, the duck pond, the shower baths for the pigs, and other modern improvements were a surprise. They also furnish information to observers of the film, which has made clever use of these modern farm attributes. An enjoyable release. - The Moving Picture World, November 8, 1913
