Miss Vera Grimms, a militant lecturer on social reforms, occupies a seat in the parlor car near Jarr and "Fatima," the stage name of Fritz's sister.

A merry installment
19 November 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Mr. Jarr takes a trip to Chicago, gets taken for a White Slaver while on the sleeper, gets mixed up with a stout actress and a slim Lady Reformer, gets handcuffs, gets put off the train, gets into other horrible scrapes, gets out of them and gets safely home. A merry installment of the other fellow's miseries. - The Moving Picture World, April 10, 1915
