Storyline

James and Kate Fuller have been on their wedding trip, and after a year start home. They fall asleep in the waiting train. In a home in the city a baby arrives, to whom a little brother objects very much. He decides, to get rid of him and takes him to the railroad station. The boy sees James and Kate asleep in the train, lays the baby on Kate's lap, and is home and undressed before the baby is missed. He leaves the front door ajar to mislead the nurse. The loss is soon discovered. Papa Potter sees the door open and thinks the baby has been stolen. He calls up the police, who start a search. The train is on its way. Kate awakens, is puzzled and awakens James, showing him the baby. James pushes the baby away, showing his dislike for children. Kate is pained. Arriving at their destination, James tries to persuade Kate to leave the baby in the station, but she refuses. Soon after they arrive home, friends call. Fearing the friends will think that the baby is theirs, James hides it. All is... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Causes hearty laughter all through
3 June 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A very laughable little comedy by Helena Moore, directed by Joseph Smiley. The limit of license is almost reached by the author and director to start this plot going. Nothing short of a "non compos mentis" would do as the boy did in this picture. It is funny in its development and subsequently causes hearty laughter all through. It involves a pair of newlyweds in several embarrassing situations that create a guessing match. It is a well acted and taken offering. - The Moving Picture World, March 14, 1914
