When Old Jim was sold to the City Fire Department there was a wailing and gnashing of teeth in Engine House No. 69. For Jim was the best fire horse in the business. In every department of his profession he was so nearly perfect that few could discern any trifling flaws. Morgan, the farmer who bought Jim, found him an exceedingly useful addition. The only trouble was that they could not ring any bells about the farm. Whenever they did, Jim would dash out of his stall and stand waiting to have his harness put on. Joe Berry, one of Morgan's farm hands, was in love with Betty Morgan. Betty liked him but she felt that she was better than he was. When Nick Sharp appeared from the city and started to shower her with attentions, she dropped Joe. Nick was different than awkward country bumpkins like Joe.

    This is a very reasonable and a real comedy photoplay, by Mark Swan and Charles H. France, director, has brought out all the salient points. Harry Eytinge, Ellen Bower and Floyd France, with good support, take care of the acting part in fine shape. The comedy hinges around an old fire horse who is bought by a farmer. One of the farm hands is in love with the farmer's daughter but is "cut out" by a city chap. While the family is absent they hitch up old Jim and elope. A fire bell rings and old Jim starts on a run tor the sound, landing them not only at the fire but in front of Betty's father and mother. A cracking good comedy. - The Moving Picture World, September 5, 1914
