Storyline

When Clark, the elder of Clark Brothers, Manufacturers, discovers that sums of money varying from ten to fifty dollars are being taken from the safe he sends for the police. He is told to discharge his stenographer and to let it be known in the office that she was under suspicion. He is also to send the discharged stenographer around to the Detective Bureau. This he does. The poor girl is terrified but assured by the detective that she was just going to have a little vacation. A lady detective is sent to take her place, and at the end of three days she had two of the clerks under arrest. But she did not detect that one young man of the firm was sadly depressed because of the absence of the stenographer. He was a nice young man and she liked him. But Mr. Clark was so much occupied in welcoming the old stenographer back that he had no time even to say goodbye to the detective. It hurt her a little, but it had to be.

The story is rather thin
20 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A detective story that is not so good as the recent one in this series called, "On the Broad Stairway." It features the same woman detective (Laura Sawyer), but the story is rather thin and has little suspense or dramatic feeling. It is well acted. The producer is Walter Edwin. - The Moving Picture World, August 16, 1913
