One of the oldest of the few streets of the town of Marshall but one
of the necessary ones for it for many years connected the south side of the
county with the town proper. 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. " At the time the
picture was taken McLendon and Morrow carried on a Supply house for
lumber and household fixtures. It is well for us once in a while look back

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. Admission will bo FREE, but a silver offering will be taken up
to meet expenses. We are doing our best to minister to. the social
Lneeda, as well as the spiritual ones, of our town. If you are with ua

The News-Record has insistent
ly asked that some one with caDi-
tal should erect a good tourist
hotel where those who wish to
spend some- time in the! cool
breezes of the" mountains .might
come and while aw&y ,the hot
months, . There are many, sites
where these might be placed.
The Mashburn field on the 'other
side of the river ..would be an
ideal place and would be of easy
access from the town by road
that could be built from thfe road
that leads to Asheville. Thfeh the
hill back of the town readieg up
from the railroad would- be a
fine place. The hill above, the
school house would also,, open a
fine view "for thev people "who
might come There are beauti
