As its name iiuilcatee, iho photoplay la a modern production, sp^usored by Ooldwyn and written by Porter Emerson Browne.. Yet In spite of the presence of the officera' training c^Wp at Plattsburg, there Is a strong note of historic appeal as well. For Mabel Normand as Joan,- the charter orphan, the drudge of a drear iustl-tution, sees hiu'self thft reincarnation of the Iirimortal Maid ot Orlenus, Jeanne of the villHge ot Arc. In this way the past and present are made to meet, and while tliere are no scenes riot lalcl in the present, the orplian imnginog her:i^lf clad in mall at the hea{\ pt a besioging army. Her Iniag-Inutlon, ot course, takes definite form on the screen and the child is actually aeen' by the audience In the armor of Joan of France.

Sir Robert Borden: "I have no official report at all except, of, we have official information that the various classeR in Oreai. nritain. subject to military service have been called and recalled over and over again. It has been the desire to have in the fighting line every available men to the. extent ot it^-erfering moat seriously with important industries.'' Halifax Relief. The house went Into coinihittee on tlie bill respecting tiie Halifax Hellef Commission. The purpose of the bill. Sir Robert explained, was merely to confirm an act of the legislature of the province conferring certain powers on the H'SlUax Relief Commission. Hon. Rodolphe Lemleux asked the minl.ster of railways nnd cnnnlfl. if a.s a resuUt of the revelations, made at the Inquiry into the'-Hallfax disaster, draetic measures should be taken to prevent a! repetition ot such an event. The minister announced that the commission of pilotage inattei^ was now i on its way la the Pacific Coast where innulrles wBuld be made into pilotage at Vancouver, Victoria and Nanalnto. Should the commUteo report it advisable to place these sys-' terns under the control, of the minister, the recommendation would be acted upqn. .Care Belna Taken. Referring more partictrUirly to Montreal, to which reference had been made by Mr. Lemleux, the minister stated thaf steps h*d been taken to see that all explosives are kept several miles from the'port, in addition eftlct regulations governing the ha#d--ling of explosives and the movement of ammunition ships are now in force. All possible precautions have been taken to prevent n' recurrence of the disaster such as that which occurrer of Rrome. cou\d not agree with tin; proiioaai which would leave out French and Helglan reservists.

He appreciated the value ot the United Statfes as an ally, but he thought tile United States waa able to care for her soldiers'. dependents. .Mr. .McMa.ster introduced an amendment providing that the corporation ndininlstering the tund^ should distribute to relatives and dependents ot Rolillers who were domiciled in Canada on August Tl. 1014. Hon. C. J. Doherly slated that he did not wish to find fault witli any suggestions whicli would tend to improve the operation of the fund.
