    The old familiar story of the Southern mountains, in which the hero is suspected of being a revenue officer. He wins the girl in spite of obstacles, and induces her father to give up "moonshining." The dinner scene at the close, while perhaps characteristic, is too ridiculous to help the story much. The mother drinks out of her saucer and eats with her knife, and to cap the climax, the father removes his shoes at the table. - The Moving Picture World, August 23, 1913
