Storyline

Some of the influential members of a little country church were dissatisfied with their minister. They pointed out that he was old fashioned, and growing more and more feeble, forgetting the fact that he had spent all his life in their service. The leaders got the rest of the congregation into line and finally a committee broke the news to the old pastor that his service was to terminate, "a young, active minister" having been secured to replace him. The old man grieved bitterly, but was of too kind a nature to hold resentment against any man. He greeted his successor courteously, admonished him to take good care of his flock, and then wearily departed. A relative offered the minister and his daughter shelter, but forced them to work like laborers on his farm, while all the time he took credit to himself for his self-styled charity. The minister's daughter had been engaged to the young village doctor, but returned his ring, telling him that her father needed her undivided attention. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

This makes an absorbing story
9 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Here is a new turn in the story of the old minister, whose place has been taken by a younger man. Yellow fever enters the town and the young minister deserts. But the old pastor, learning of the situation, returns and faces the plague. The young doctor, in love with the minister's daughter, shares in the honors. This makes an absorbing story and one well worth seeing. - The Moving Picture World, May 31, 1913
