Clever and fresh enough to be entertaining

A little country village comedy in which Mr. Costello plays a young grocer's clerk. This clerk and the daughter (Clara Kimball Young) of a G.A.R. fire-eater (Mr. Eldridge) are in love, much to the old man's disgust. He wants his daughter to marry a brave man, a soldier. An unexpected denouement makes the clerk seem to be a hero. The plot is slight; but clever and fresh enough to be entertaining; but the scene- making and the acting are fine. That country store is perfect, and the coming of the fire engine, when the veteran's house is burning, seems like the real thing. The minor incidents are bright and snappy. A good picture. - The Moving Picture World, June 29, 1912
