Storyline

When Bob and Frank went down to the beach to spend their summer vacation, and met Colonel Fairfield's two daughters, they both felt very sorry that they were not rich. For the Colonel, although in all respects a very fine man, had too much regard for his daughter's future welfare to allow him even to countenance the idea of giving either of them to a man not properly able to support them. Since the Colonel was a man who always believed in saying exactly what he thought, he made no bones about telling the young men exactly where they stood. The next evening, as Bob and Frank were sitting by their camp fire, they saw a small sloop with an old man at the wheel, plunging heavily in the breakers, a few hundred yards from shore. They signaled to him to come in, but he refused with a shake of the head.

The participants handle their various parts artistically

This picture drama is by Loring M. Hewen. It has quite a large cast and the participants handle their various parts artistically. Ashley Miller directed it. The scenes are mostly located on the beach and bay. The heroes are two young chaps who have fallen in love with an old Colonel's two daughters. Because they are poor he will not countenance them at all. Luckily they find in some wreckage on the beach a paper, written in Spanish, that reveals the location of buried treasure. They discover it but a villainous Cuban attempts to take it away from them. The Colonel appears upon the scene and settles the matter and the sight of the gold causes him to change his mind. - The Moving Picture World, September 12, 1914
