Storyline

Rosie was born and brought up on a farm, but had longings for the gay life of the city. She was not pretty, far from it: in fact even she realized there would be no place for her on the stage, except in support of the Cherry Sisters. She couldn't be an artist's model, or a grand opera singer, so she compromised on stenography. The station agent in their village (he was a distant relative), gave her two lessons and then she went forth to conquer the metropolis. Rose got a job. No one could ever explain how she did it. Her tenure of office work was one hour and seven minutes, at the end of which time she was discharged for Incompetency. She blamed her employer and vowed vengeance.

Will bring several laughs from the average audience

A very commendable effort at comedy, in which Riley Chamberlain plays the part of an old maid stenographer and cook. Her employer discharges her from the first place (she was "fired" the subtitle very slangily stated), and ten years later is cook in his sweetheart's home. The manner in which Rosie obtains her revenge by doctoring the broker's food is very funny and will bring several laughs from the average audience. - The Moving Picture World, May 10, 1913
