The use of fireworks combined
with scenery to reproduce impor
tant events of history has reached
a high state of perfection, and
whilo furnishing amusement
serves also to impress upon tho
public mind an idea of the man
ners, customs and habits of tho
people with which the display
de.als. The most successful doliu-
tation so far attempted is that of
the destruction of the City of
Pompeii. This Italian city was in
the first centurv of the Christian
Brashear' era destroyed by an eruption of
that famous volcano, Mount Ve
suvius, aud laid bucied beneath
the ashes for seventeen hundred
years forgotten until its exist
ence was accidentally discovered
through the digging of a welL
Tho destruction of the city is
portrayed in tho pyrotechnic dis
play called "The Last Days of
Pompeii," of which so much his
been said and written lately. Of
course no buiding jb I aiee enough
to contain the material-for thi3
speotacle. A city must bo built,
a lake constructed, a mountain
must rise above the tallest steeple
and the immense stores of lire
works must nave a vent greater
than any house could aiford. The
exhibition io made in tho open
The scene is will chosen; the
magnificent City of Pompeii, tho
abode of wealth and fashion, is re
produced in miniature in all per
fection. The style of building, the
customs, diess and habit of the
people of that day are fully pro
duced. The games, exercises,
combats, music, labors and amuse
ments of the people are portrayed
by several hundred perfoimers.
In the midst of the festivities
comes the eruption of tha volcano.
Its top grows red, the earth shakes
beneath its rumbling, lightning
flashes and thunder rolls. The
people attempt to escape; some
llee to the boats or into the coun
try; some run wildly about, while
others fall to the ground unable to
help themselves. The summtt of
the mountain explodes with a
mighty report, sending volumes of
Haines, great stones and Bhowers
of ashes high into the air, to de
scend upon the city. The build
ings take fire and burn with a
fierce flame, while explosion after
explosion from the mountain top
continues to supply a fiery deluce.
The city is consumed, and so real
istic is the scene that one can
hardly keep from believing that
what he has witnessed was only a
harmless reproduction instead of
tue actual event. Of course such
a display, to be effective, must
take place at night, and with all
the accompaniments of bombs,
rockets and specialties which we
have no space to describe; the
spectacle is a grander one than
human imagination can produce.
This spectacle will be exhibit
ed at Quincy for ten nights as
follows: Sept. 10, 12, 14,17, 19, 20,
21, 24, 2G, and 28. During which
time excursion trains will be run
to tho city from all points within
a hundred miles of the city. All
railroads aud steamboat lines will
carry passengers at excursion
