Joan nf Arc lias been the theme of many plays, of which Schiller's "Jung frnti von Orleans" Is perhaps the most wjdelj-known. Shehas llgurcd In tragcely, nulo-drama, ,opera and burlesque. On thosldoot hislorieal research It has been attempted to provo (hat sho bclohgs Ui the somo category of myths or legends as William Tell, while n.wltty but unfeeling countryman df her own ha described her ns a cow'-glrl who was'a llttlo too familiar with the French sohliers. The Joan of Arc that is accepted In tho history of Franco as taught in French schools, was bom In (he year 1411, In poniremy, situ n(cd lmrdy In Champagne and Lorraine. At tho ago of 11 she, was attending litd iwuiT a iiui-Kf?, umi u was unrinu;.iuis time that she professed to have hirafd the voices of her patron snln(8aHllig on her to deliver Franco frojrf its enemies.

"A great play by a great company" Is in snbstnnco tho opinion expressed Of "Lights and Shadows," tho coming at traction at Harris' HIJou Theatre, wher ever It has been seen. Tile nlay is u melodrama of (he- most thrilling type. The story Is ono of great Interest, ami there ara numerous close encounters for the hero, who Is mado successful and happy lu the entl. This Is a brief do- scriptlon of all melodramas, but "Lights and Shadows" has 8omciuing ocsiues theso (amtliar elements to give it a. claim in puuuc interest, its cuccts nro iiouniy thrilling, because of the almost dnrlng novelty that cliarae,tcrizes the cplsotles of the ploy. No melodrama Is now consid ered qulto complcto without n real water Bceno. And yet tlio display of p sheet of water, with boat races, etc., etc., has become, to say the least, an old nc eiuatutancc.
