In the little rural county there were two candidates for sheriff, the nominee of the "ring," and a young man who believed in reform principles. The reformer was in love with a bright girl, whose father was the editor of the village newspaper. The editor did not object to the marriage, but he absolutely refused to swing his support to his prospective son-in-law. And despite all the campaigning the young man did, he found that he did not make any headway, and as he sadly confessed to his sweetheart "only a miracle" could elect him.

Moves along pleasantly enough

One of those very romantic film stories in which the pretty young heroine performs a lot of improbable acts. In this case the girl edits her father's paper, runs the sheriff out of office and gets her lover elected. The story is not very convincing, but it has action and moves along pleasantly enough. The photography is good. - The Moving Picture World, November 15, 1913
