    A melodrama which contains most of the qualities that go to make such dramas popular. The operation of the huge cotton compress is cleverly reproduced and introduces a new feature into a motion picture. It adds a picturesque and somewhat novel phase of scenic interest and gives a new viewpoint to those fortunate enough to see it. The acting is quite up to the standard of such dramas and the photographer has performed his part of the work well. The love story which runs through gives the necessary touch of heart interest and adds the essential human touch. It is a good story, well told in an attractive picture. - The Moving Picture World, March 12, 1910
