The storekeeper was the biggest man in Cranberry Centre, and his neighbors were convinced that he would be a political hero some day.

Built up principally to show the inauguration
28 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A rather interesting story, built up principally to show the inauguration of President Woodrow Wilson in Washington. The country storekeeper, after forbidding his daughter's marriage, goes to the inauguration. He loses his pocketbook and rides home in a box car, just in time to be present at the wedding. A fairly good offering. - The Moving Picture World, April 19, 1913
