scarcely any appetite at all, everything
I ate seemed to 'sour and turn to gas
and I would become so short of breath
I could scarcely talk. I ' couldn't eat
any breakfast at all, and the little I
managed to eat at other times made
me sick at my stomach. I suffered a
great deal from constipation and diz

stand the children playing nbout the

"The patrons shrieked and roared. They had witnessed the most sensa

raise the hair on a man's head and raise the man out of his seat." SUN
HEKALD. "One cannot enumerate the multitude of virtues in the film. One
should really see the picture". It is unique and a great thing."- AMERICAN.

GRAM. j "Mr. Griffith, with unerring instinct, has played up the appeal to the ele
mental emotions. His picture is full of exquisitely beautiful scenes, needing
no color to reveal their perfection." EVENING POST.
"It is not often that an audience stands to cheer a motion picture. But it
happened at the Forty-fourth Street Theatre. The audience rose and cheered.
Some of the settings are wondrously beautiful, the scenes m the snowstorms
being most realistic." COMMERCIAL.
"The audience sat in rapture to watch its unfolding. Of the hubbub which
followed the ice-jam scene at the end, any audience would have cheered it and
-all audiences will." TIMES.
"It had the spectators standing and cheering. As many generations of
the future will be charmed, and thrilled by the shadow show as have wept, ap
plauded and chuckled over the stage play. It is difficlut to recall anything'
Griffith ever did which has more punch than this long sustained, breath-taking
scene on the ice." WORLD.
"Most amazing spectacle ever seen on land or sea or moving picture
screen. Brought the audience to its feet in spontaneous shout of appreciation.
Much rural comedy . . . Will be cheered from coast to coast and in many dif
ferent tongues and accents across the water." ALISON SMITH GLOBE.
"The audience received a thrill the like of which has not been felt since
the Clansman rode over the hills in 'The Birth of a Nation'! To describe the
acting of, Lillian Gish would be to-open these columns to all the superlatives
in the language. .
Pandemonium broke loose . . . The theatre resounded to cheers, whis
tles and yells of delight. A series of pictures that might well hang on any wall."
EVENING MAIL.

"When the stupendous ice scenes were shown the theMre rocked with
applause. Never in our five years' experience with motion pictures have we
seen such a demonstration. It is difficult to write without dealing almost en
tirely in superlatives." HARRIETTE UNDERHILL, TRIBUNE.
"No one but Griffith could have done it . . Audience broke into cheers
and screams . . But tp the story itself, the fundamental humanity with which
it deals, the simplicity' of characters, is due the absorption of the people who,
