The wife elopes [to America] with an army officer, Lieutenant Von Glahn, taking with her the six-year-old daughter Louise. Years pass; the old musician goes to America, where the wife [has since died]. Dead broke, [Faber] goes out on the streets to earn a living with his violin. One day while playing on the street, he faints from hunger. His long-lost daughter Louise, now a beautiful young woman, picks him up, takes him to his home and arranges to take music lessons from him. Faber calls and is confronted by Von Glahn, the man who took his wife and child away. He makes the villain confess that the girl is not his daughter. Father and daughter are united and Von Glahn gets his deserved end.”—8 Oct 1910 Moving Picture World ... +
