Storyline

Tom Logan, the village blacksmith, is in love with Ruth, a simple country lass, who returns his love with all the devotion at her command. This match is looked upon with favor by Tom's parents.

On his way back overtakes a man in the act of beating a woman. An overturned buggy stands close by driving the man off. Tom finds the woman one of evident refinement. She claims to be a trained nurse. Tom begs her to come home with him and nurse his injured brother. This she does and in time Tom falls in love with her. Forgetting his former sweetheart, he marries the woman much against his parents' wishes. Several years pass. Tom's wife has presented him with a little daughter.

An excellent screen presentation
5 May 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This three-reel production gives an excellent screen presentation of Hal Reid's famous old melodrama. King Baggot is cast as the young blacksmith and Arline Pretty as the sweetheart. The city adventuress appears on the scene with her male companion; she marries the blacksmith and later tires of life in the country. She induces her former pal to commit murder. He stabs Tom's father by mistake and the false wife flees with him to the city, abandoning her child. Later the child is stolen. Other features are the tramp, the blind mother, the hero's false imprisonment and subsequent pardon. The photography is unusually good throughout and the production makes the most of its subject matter. - The Moving Picture World, November 28, 1914
