A love story woven around a fake stock deal which purports to show that a man cannot, provided he is in love with a girl, entrap her father into parting with his cash for stock which is worthless. Of course the comedy climax adds a peculiar flavor to the story when the boy brings in the note that confidently asserts that no woman is worth $2,000. That is a point upon which considerable disagreement would exist. The hero of this tale is quite content to follow the straight and narrow road, more especially when it leads him into the arms of his beloved. Some of the scenery is picturesque, particularly the river views where a portion of the love making occurs. - The Moving Picture World, September 3, 1910
