Ambition is a small word, but it cer
tainly does mean much. Many people ,
think they have the ambition to lo ;
certain things, but when it comes to
the point they seem to fall by the way
side. Xo« >0 with 1 barley Champlin.
He always has had the ambition to be
a shining light in the theatrical firma
ment, and by diut of hard study and
work he had gradually mounted the
ladder of fame, step by step, until he ,
has reached the topmost ranks, ami has
su - ceded in grasping the goal of his
ambition, and that was. to l>e the fore
most star in his profession to-day. He
is now making his fourteenth tour of
the east, where he hus met with re
nowned success, 011 each visit Mr.
Champlin aud his company will open
an engagement at the Majestic, Monday
afternoon, presenting "The Reformer"
and in the evening "The Man From

"The Reformer," "The Littlest Reb

Maryland," "He Fell in Love With
His Wife," "The Ghost Breiker" and'
"The Master of the House" will be

efforts in some of the latest song hits j
are simply takiug audiences by storm.]
The act also contains some rich and j
novel comedy, .lust how the comedy sit-'
nations are brought out, must not be!
told here, for the act of "The Volun !

is interesting and the vocal efforts of
the company are exquisite. While the
Orpheum's bill this week is excellently j
'balanced, its greatest asset is the |
abuudauce of rich comedy that pre-;

The sonig, dance and comedy turn

admit that is some. Bert Fitzgibbons is 1

everybody. Bert you could stick around
at the Orpheum more weeks than one

It Is a Great To«>ic After a Life of
Physical Inactivity
111 several respects mountain climb-,
iiig is a peculiarly wholesome form of
athletic sport for the large number of
persons wliose vocations are sedentarv.
fht isn]iior life - which these persons
commonly lead and the protection
from even the slightest rigors of cli
mate which their mode of housing and
places of work afford them are more
than likely to render them oversensi
tive to the extremes of weather. It is
tor precisely such unexposed persons
that an occasional trip to the highlands
and an Alpine excursion has most re
freshings recuperation and stimulus in
store, according to physicians.
The heart is called 011 to exert itself
to a degree which, in an otherwise
healthy subject, will be followed only
by the invigoration characteristic of
most exercise. The advantage is not
confined to a single organ, for the
respiratory mechanism, the entire mus
culature of the body, as well as the
cardiac and circulatory apparatus, and
the general metabolic processes appar
ently benefit in ways not readily de
finable in scientific terms. In addition
to an indefinable feeling of well being,
considerable skill is acquired in certain
of the performances of mountain climb
ing or other feats of alpine sport. The
combination has shown its .vhoiesouie
and invigorating influence on many
an individual suffering from the
"fag" of a life of physical inactivity.

New York, Feb. 12.—Full skirts
! have undoubtedly come to stay for a
j while at least. For all that, there is
' no reason why the woman with'several
long tunic skirts in her wardrobe j
! should be discouraged, for they have ;
I not been discarded by any manner of |
, means. A number of the large French j
j dressmakers are using them this year I
j with great success and in such a way i
{ that the ingenious woman may follow 1
j their examples with her old skirts.
For instance, the new tunic skirts j
are very long, much longer than those I
!of last year, showing scarcely more j
1 than 011 c or two inches of the lower :
skirt beneath but' to offset this, which
looks rather dilllcult when your last '
season's long tunic showed at least six!
| inches of a lower skirt, yokes are very j
i much Wie rage, and by attaching a
i tunic to a yoke it will be long enough
to suit this season's requirements.
A Conservative Frock Developed in

If the dress you wish to remodel is
of silk, or a summer fabric, a very sim
ple way of modernising it is to add a
lower section of two or more rufiles,

j shows. I saw a very pretty taffeta

tight lower skirt. The owner of the
dress made the lower skirt wide by in
serting a triangular piece of the mate
rial into the back seam. Two ruffles
she made of the same taffeta, with nar
row henii machine hemstitched. These
were placed outo the foundation
skirt and, of course, the piecing was
hidden, and joined below the long i
tunic. The dress was very smart and
looked as though it might have been
designed this season instead of last.
With a little forethought and a care
ful studying of new designs to be seen
in the fashion magazines or fashion sec
tions of the newspapers many an old
dress whose style is heirless can be
made into an up-to-date garment which
will give a great deal of pleasure.
In my first illustration 1 have shown
a dress whose lines ate simple enough
to suit the most conservative of tastes
and yet are so smart that wherever tho
gowu is seen the wearer would pass as
a well-dressed member of society. Tho
model is developed in Belgian blue
ribbed material, light of weight and
suited to the skirt, whose wide tucks
give an effect of dejp hems in a
llounced skirt.
News from Paris says that gabardine
continues to be very smart. It has the
qualities which should endear it to the
American mind, for it is serviceable and
practical and comes in all the known
shades, from navy blue, black, white,
to all the shades of tan and gray.
Checks large and checks small are
being shown for the spring suits. In
my illustration I have shown a trigl
little suit with a diagonal black-and
white check. The coat is made some- j
what 011 Norfolk lines, with a six-gored
Norfolk Suit in Biack and White Check
skirt cut the short ankle length, to
\ which length all skirts should be cut
!to have the proper style this year. In
| stead of shoes, to be distiuctlv up to
! Paris styles, boots should be worn with
| a walking dress of this character. Rus
sian boots they are called, they button
or lace up the sides and wrinkle in a
mousquetaire fashion.
Umpire lines are shown in everv
! thing. Suits are made short waisted,
| with full peplums hanging from the
| belt. Tailored frocks are made short
waisted, with a wide or narrow belt,
| which i 9 attached on its upper line only
I and hangs free on its lower edge, giv-
I ing a boxed effect. The evening
| dresses are made distinctly after the
gowns of the Empress Josephines pe
! riod, the waists j'ist coming below the
j bust, and the skirts longer and fuller
j than those of her time, but clinging
I gracefully to the figure.
Striped taffeta skirts have jackets
of satin matching some color in the
stripe. Voile is used extensively, and
usually trimmed with bands of taffeta.
Saud-colored voile skirts have brown
taffeta jackets.
Lunette is un American-made fabric
which takes the 'place of the Georgette
crepe, which is made abroad and has
become very scarce since the war.
Whole dresses are made ot' it, e»pe<'iallv
for evening wear, and it is most at
tractive and more durable than chiffon.

Dolly Varden and Dresden designs, as
well as in the large figured effects.
Plaid fabrics- are having a renewed
vogue in Paris, although tney are con
sidered a novelty rather than a staple
fabric. Black is naturally very stylish,
as would be expected when one thinks
that all France is in mourning. Whjte
evening coats are considered very fash
ionable; also coats of white serge and
gabardine for tho separate coat. Black
and white combined is also very good
and largely featured, and in its train
purple and gray —in fact, all the mourn
ing and semi-mourning colors —are
having a vogue which they will prob
ably not have until another war.
New uniforms have beeu made for'
the French soldiers of a new shade of
blue; naturally that means it is iin- ,
mediately copied for costumes for wom
en. Tliis color, together with the
k'haki-eolored field cloth, are used ex
tensively for tailored costumes, espe
cially if they follow ever so slightly
the tendency toward the military.
Red, also a military color, but in a j
new brick shade, is being used a great
deal, while the national colors of Bel
gium—red, yellow and black —are be
ing combined again and again into
frocks and suits.
Small hats nre the vogue in Paris.
They are loved too well by the Pa
risians to be quickly discarded. Trig
little hats of oilcloth to match cuffs
and belt arc worn extensively with
tailored suits. Tho small hats entirely
covered wit>h flowers are used for more
elaborate occasions. Tailored hats are
being trimmed with ribbons of large
plaid, as well as .in black and white
faille ribbons, and give them a distinct
ly new look.
Large hats are slowly creeping iuto
view, and will, no doubt, bold the peo
ple for summer, especially tho old-time
shape trimmed with flowers and velvet
ribbon streamers.

"Are the Shamrock boys better nre-1
men for having hit the trail 1 ? was ask
ed to-day of Harry G. Dyblie, president
of the company, himself a "trail hit
ter. ''
"Well," replied the modest leader.j
"I don't like to boast about the work i
of our bovs when they are called to J
duty. As to whether they are better j
fire fighters I would not like to say. 1
can say anil most emphatically, that
they are better men, and the better a
man is in a religious way the better he
is for any kind of useful service."
Heroes at the Big Ford Fire
It is recalled, in this connection,
that it was a squad of live Shamrock
firemen who did conspicuously heroic j
work at the bilg tire in the Ford Sales j
Company warehouse, Cameron and Mul-•
berry streets, a few days ago. These j
with a line of hose, took a peril
ous position on the roof of a black-,
smith shop adjoining the burning build- j
ing. They stuck here, in the intense
heat of the burning gasoline and ex
posed to constant danger of a collapse
of the Ford building anil quit their
posts ouly when the walls beigan to
An instant after hundreds of tons of
i bricks fell and crushed in the roof of
the blacksmith at the exact place from
I which they had been directing their
j hose stream. The five men had escaped
I death by a few seconds.
Two of these five men, John Moore
I and William Low, are officers of the
I Shamrock Bible class, and two more,
Urvin Wenrick and Newton \letzgar, are
| regular attendants at the class meet
] ings. They have themselves ascribed
1 their deliverance from death when the
i walls fell to no particular cause, but
some of their fellows have pointed out
I significantly that they are among the
| most active of the religious workers
j in the Shamrock company.
24 "Hit Trail" in a Body
That the life led by firemen is a
hazardous one is generally recognized,
and especially is it realized by the fire
imeut themselves. When an alarm sounds
it may mean only an oil stove explosion
W'Mt damage to some lace curtains, or
it may mean the stubborn burning o'f
large building and the sacrifice of
human Hvcs —perhaps firemen's lives.
When Dr. Stongh, during the serv
ices at the tabernacle reiferred repeat
edly to the firemen as among t>he big
gest heroes in tlhe city / his audiences
agreed with him, and special efforts
were made to lead the firefighters up tho
sawdust trail. 'Many of the men whose
business it is to face death, whenever
occasion demand's, began to think dur
ing tlhe campaign of what tljey would
meet after death, and as a consequence
professed conversion.
From the Shamrock .Fire Company
No. ■ll, which had the largest «.tt-eiui

night of all the local companies, there
were twenty-four trail hitters drawn.
Twenty-two of these men have joined

pastor, the Rev. John M. Warden, is
chaplain of the company.

which two more members of the com
pany have professed conversion.
"The men who hit the trail," said j
President Dyblie, "are most active in I

Following a process of gradual un
