Then when the Cotton Mill was built it be came more than ever necessary for the business section of the town It led out to Sky land and Sandy Mush and the Little pine district Before the bridge near the sectioiyof the center of the town was built all the. farmers of these sections came into town that way. ' It was at one time that the railroad depot might be built oh the cor nar lot that even unto this day is vacant but it failed Bridge Street even ' today has its Share of traffic Tut because of the steep hill on the other side of the river most of the travel is by the other bridge. The bridge which gave the name of the street was washed away in the flood' of 1916 and a hew structure has taken its place. In the picture which is shown this week the mill appears in the distance.-On, the side of the street the business build ing are stilt there except that the one nearest the bridge has given away to the ware house that was occupied by the wholesale house.

It je divid- i . . .. . . . . . eiJ into three great parts The iowcr Tne Assyrian Camp And I he Flight. . ' . . , The opening scenes take? one into the Holy Land with its beau tiful views of women drawing water ftt the wells. The touching episode of Nainii and her beloved Nathan, and of the beautiful Judith in ber tower, give the atmosphere of the East. The coming oLthe Assyrian hordes, "like the wolf on the fold," thrills one with the sense of im pending disaster. The mighty men of battle, with their pikeB and ja velins, the arches and slinger the horse and chariots, s A oop down up on the water carries: After the opening battle, Holferenes, the leader sent by Nebuchadenczzar, lays seigo to the city. They stormed the city wall with all the zeal of conquering warriors. When the city seems doomed to fall, Judith, inspired by her visions, goes to Holf erenes, I, Her beauty trained her admittance to the king. By her ever wiles, she entrances Holferenes, wfio gives her a finely appointed tent and the freedom of the camp At lenther he falls a victim to the wine cup. Judith is shown in her great emotional struggle, but 'chooses to share the afflictions of her people rather to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season. A truly great picture such as seldom is produced one that is not forgotten easily, and in which Dorothy Gish takes a prominent part.
