The plot in this is rather complicated

The girl leaves her father in a fainting condition and during her search for a doctor falls into the hands of a gambler, who professes real love for her. This situation divides the interest of the observer and weakens the plot. Some of the scenic effects are picturesque. - The Moving Picture World, September 20, 1913
