LAST DAYS OF POMPEII
Description of Pains' New Pyrotech
■ nic Spectacle*.
The spectacular dramatic performance
of the "Last Days of. Pompeii," which
will be pepsentei each evening: at the
state fair, is a representation of the most
direful disaster or' all hi-story, the"death
and burial of a city. '
When Vesuvius poured forth its deadly
torrent ■of ■ lava upon the ancient city of
Pompeii, burying it under a mass of liquid
stone, and destroying with pitiless force
the thousands of happy people who dwelt
within the walls of the doomed place, cries
of agony rent the lurid air, and all was
desolation and misery.
This happened eighteen centuries ago.
Excavators' researches have brought be
fore the world relics of the fatal city.
Volumes have been written upon it, and
people have come to know a great deal of
the history of Pompeii.. So far as books
can teach them, so far as lectures by rages
HIGH LIFE IN LOS ANGELES IN SUMMER
"B. OB." Tells of the Glories of the Atmosphere and of the Sea-
Eternal Spring in Everlasting Summer—Hotels and Hotel
Life on the Pacific.
I Correspondence of The Journal. |
Los Angeles, Aug. 6, 1901.—Southern j
California was never, before so filled with
tourists during the dull summer months.
Usually at this season of the year the
curio shops along the main streets put
up their shutters and move Into cheaper
quarters; hotel men do their house.clean
ing, the theaters, are .deserted, and the
townspeople live oft' each other. But the
bands are still playing during the dinner
hour at the hotels; the streets are crowd
ed with"..shoppers,.,'and the \ newspapers
twang their ' editorial \■_ harps ... to \ the
tune of prosperity and -contentment. The
reason for this change of conditions which
is becoming more sand■),. more apparent
every year is not far to seek. Easterners
are slowly awakening to the fact that de
lightful a3 it is all aong the Pacific coast
in winter, it is really, pleasanter in sumy
mer. The popular impression has been
that California being so warm in winter
must be comparitively hotter during the
dog days, but experience proves the con
trary. During the recent period of scorch
ing; heat all over the country, when the
| thermometer loitered along in the hun
dreds, it remained In the eighties in
southern California and dropped into the
sixties, up north in the" vicinity of 'Frisco.
There Is relatively but little variation
in the temperature;. but little more than
ten degrees in the twenty-four hours. |
Every afternoon by four o'clock _ a sea ;
breeze will, so cool the hottest day, that
at bedtime — anywhere from 10 p.m. to 5
a. m. —you have'to sleep under a blanket. !
Light wraps are worn almost every night,
and fidglty people look out for J a draught
even in August. /
Then too, on a really hot day here the
local article at its worst is not compara- \
ble with the ! damp and oppressive * heat I
that has made the east so uninhabitable j
this summer. Owing to the lack of rain
the air is not charged with moisture; the !
percentage of humidity is never, high,
nor does the breeze come like a blast from
a furnace.. Thunderstorms are almost as
rare as angel's visits In this ever rose
blooming corner of, the' country, and cy
clones so unheard of that the people could
not follow Lac/ Stafford's philosophical
discussion on what would happen If the
Irresistible force struck the immovable
object. Yet in spite of the lack of rain
there is no dust, for an occasional ' fog i
cools the air, and lays the dust as well.
But to conclude this long talk on, the I
weather; the . following official table of |
temperatures taken during the recent I
heated term will fully substantiate as j
facts the statements made above..

What to Eat.
j The creature comforts of life are on a !
par with the climate. The "leading hotel !
in Los Angeles," save for the fact that the ■
markets are limited, compares favorably
with any hotel in New York or Chicago, j
It is well nigh impossible to get soft-shell j
crabs here, because they are not hardy !
enough to stand the long journey, and die \
on the way from the Atlantic seaboard. !
Lobsters, too, are "cut" just at present, j
but will be "in" again August 10. Not be- j
cause there are no lobsters along the Pa- '
cific coast— with or without the shell— I
rather for the reason that last .winter's I
crop of tourists so, ate Into .the crop of ,
shell fish that the legislature passed a bill !
prohibiting the lobster-potter from snar
ing during the summer months. The Pa
cific lobster by tbe* way is really, a huge
craw-fish, has no claws, but is as edible
as the Atlantic variety. | Then, too, you
are served with eastern oysters even dur
ing the months without the 1 S, the oyster
being brought out here and planted. As
for the small California oysters, they are
I good all the year around, and are always
j served as the first course of a formal din
! ner or luncheon. But generally speaking
j the sea food is neither si good or of such
i variety, in the Pacific, and 'attempts; to
! plant ; Atlantic fish jj along this coast have ■
' largely resulted in failure, because the
J water, is so much more salty- than along
the eastern shore. - - ; .
- r Dove, pigeon and squab are about the
only 'game in the market just at present,
and the j, Arizona;.meat is . so- tough and
.unpalatable that the;best. cuts come from
Chicago and Kansas ■ City. But, on the
other hand,:v. California raises fresh vege
tables all the year. There are few'days
in,', the, $65 when you are .denied' straw
berries .with., your ' breakfast; . firm, juicy
and about twice „ the „ size of .1 the .eastern
berry. Cantaloupe and fresh corn have
-been-; in the* market since the latter 'part.
can instruct, them, -they are well informed
of the horrible night's occurrence, .in
which one of the greatest cities in ancient
times was buried beneath a sea of hissing,
molten stone. ; :; ;y y
But books, pictures and lectures cannot
portray . the scene In all the grandeur it
must have possessed. H. J. Pain, of Lon
don, England, the most noted of all pyro
technists, conceived a representation of
"The Last Days of Pompeii," a production
of which . will be given each night at the
state fair in all the magnificence of scenic
effects and realism possible to modern art.
The production will be something that will
excel anything every before attempted in
a pyrotechnic and spectacular way;'com
plete in every particular, true In each de
tail to history, correct in Its costumes and
grand beyond any precedent in its en
tirety. ...".■.
Nearly 300 performers participate in the
representation of | the fete day.; Roman
sports and pastimes are depicted by scores
of acrobats, tumblers,- specialties, etc. A
pretty plat, founded on Lord | Lyton's
beautiful novel of the same name, runs
through the play, but' Interest naturally
centers upon the realistic crisis at the
termination of the fete day's sports.
Frowning Vesuvius awakes from its
treacherous plumber, and with a terrific
roar belches forth floods of smoke, lava,
and pyrotechnics. The beautiful .temples,
palace and public buildings fall one bx one
and devouring flames Complete their de
struction. j$ This scene is one of awful
grandeur and realism. ;
Street Car Facilities.
The state fair grounds can be reached
from Minneapolis in about half an hour.
The management of the street railway
company has planned to put every avail
able wheel in motion next week and will
run cars as often as may be necessary.
It is stated by officials that there Is plenty
of power this year and .that cars can be
run at very frequent intervals. On Snell
ing avenue, near the fair grounds, there
Is a long track for storage of cars, which
will be used to meet the rush of the
crowds after the close of performances.
■Cars of the Como-Interurban-Harrlet
line run directly from Lake Harriet down
Hennepin avenue and to the fair grounds.
In addition to these regular cars there
.will be a large number which will run
from Sixth ?™ I Hennepin to the fair
grounds. Tf"" iters from any other lines
in the city will be good on these cars.
.; Admission to . the Fair.
To correct any misunderstanding It
should be' stated that admission to the
fair is 50 cents—just what it has always
been. For the evenings, however, the
rate is but 25 cents. This price of ad
mission goes into effect at 6 o'clock, so
that it is possible for the people who are
busy during the day to go to the grounds
at 6 o'clock, see. the exhibits before 8
and then take in the amusements at the
grand stand, getting the benefit of the
low rate. All the fair buildings are illu
minated at night except the cattle barns.
of April; new potatoes, green peas, and
asparagus are among the staple.vegetables
to be. had most any time. . And .as for
spring chicken, that sagacious bird has his
head on the block the year around, in this
land of almost perpetual springtime, while
you don't have to wait until Thanksgiving
for your turkey. So thus what the mar
kets deny in sea food is made up for in
game and vegetables.
'•Going In for Sport."
If you care to go In for sport it's but a
three-hour journey to Catalina, where wild
, goats are to be had for the shooting,
though the sport of sports for. sports is
fishing for the big Tuna. Old fishermen
of the Grover Cleveland type claim that
one never knows the delights of fishing
before landing a Tuna, and that the most
experienced of the Atlantic watermen fail
in their first attempts. The tuna is said
to be the gamest fish that swims, and get
ting a tarpon into the boat is as tame by
comparison as old maid to-. poker. \ To
land your fish within an hour after you've
hooked him is a record to be proud of,
it taking. on an average of from two to
three hours. So the tournament just fin
ished under the auspices of the Catalina
Tuna club proved most exciting to those
interested in that sort of thing, the con
testants coming from all parts of the coun
try to take part in the tourney. The Tuna
club is not an exclusive organization; in
fact it's democratic in theory, but to be
come a member of the club you must have
landed alone and unaided as the circus
announcer would say,— a tuna weighing at
least 150 lbs. And mind they don't take
your word for the weight jof the fish, —
else the club would have a larger member
j ship. The catch must be made under cer
i tain restrictions as to weight of rod, reel
I and line, and the weighing done under the
j eye of the, keeper of the great seal, which
i is the sad sea dog name for a land shark
weighmaster.
Fun at the Theaters.
But If you prefer remaining on shore
and letting the other fellow work so long
overtime at sea, that he'd strike for
shorter hours if compelled to find his
pleasure fishing, there's enough of quiet
amusement in town. At the Los Angeles
l theater during these dull summer months
we've had. Henry Miller in a round of
I plays, Including "D'Arcy of the. Guards,"
| which he is trying on the California dog
j before opening in New York. But the dog
j did not fancy the dish particularly, and it
j will hardly dod for New York. Blanche
Bates followed in "Under Two Flags,'
j and made : a pronounced individual hit,
; the fact of her being a Californian draw
ing really brilliant audiences to the
! theater on the opening night beg pardon
1 premier. - The Titian-haired Leslie Carter
as'Zaza gave the Angellnoa'three nights'
illustration on how to break the seventh
commandment, — get away with It, —
and now we are threatened with an in
vasion of the. Frohmans. Charles Froh
man's Empire Theater .company opens
i next Monday, night,. presenting for the
first time out of. New York "Mrs. Dane's
Defense," and: Brother <M Dan follows in
j "Lady Huntsworth's Experiment." . y*yA
j 'At the* Burbank, .which supports stock
i companies in standard plays, season after
i season, James Neill and his company
i have just concluded a most profitable
: seven weeks' engagement. ' The Pacific
; coast Is, properly speaking,, the home of
stock companies and it is no small credit
! to. Mr. Neill that, since entering this
; field he has won for.himself and company
! a place second to none. His production
i of "Barbara Friietchle" In particular Is a
j most ambitious undertaking for a stock
j manager,, but the results both from an
1 artistic and box office point of view spoke
I for.'themselves.-standing room being at a
premium during "Frietchle" week.
'.'-/ i . y - Wonder* of .the Sea.
But for the past month the- sea has
i been giving a sort of continuous perform
i ance, which as a spectacle rivals any stage
i picture ever devised. About three weeks
j ago people along the shore hereabouts
> noticed that the; color of the/sea was
• changing,'lnstead of green it was becom-
I ing more and more of a mud-red hue, the
i ocean- for acres presenting' a marvelous
i sight, the well-defined belt'of red lying
\ off shore, coming nearer at times, fluctu
ating with* the tides./ At night it was dis
covered that the waters ablaze with
light. Flames seemed to leap from every
wave, and when the surf piled up on the
shore, the spectacle was truly grand.
Special trains were put/on at one of the
resorts; divers were, employed/ to ... leap
from the piers, and appeared to be swim
ming in molten metal, and came out of the
water dripping with liquid Are. Various
theories, were, put forward to account for
the phenomena, every movement of the
water, 5 like the touch of Midas, turning It
to gold. The /most plausible explanation
seems to; be that the . phosphorescence Is
caused' by!. countless '' luminous,'/; animal

Buffalo, N. V., Aug. 31.—The past has
been an unusually quiet week at the
Pan-American, relieved only *• by the
steadily Increasing attendance, the aver
age for the week not being far from 70,
--000, not including Sunday, when' the at
tendance always 'way below that of
week days, in spite of the 25-cent admis
sion. j Three . new shows . have started up
on the Midway and one of them has al
ready had time to "bust." This makes
forty-seven Midway attractions. ■ -
The West Point cadets left for school
on the evening of the 28th, their furlough
expiring on the 29th. During their brief
stay they attracted all sorts, of favorable
notice and gave daily drills either out on
the grounds 'or in the : Stadium. While
at the exposition they visited the breed
ing, farm of a local horse fancier and in
the fullness of his good feelings he gave
the corps a fine stallion, valued at $5,000.
The boys took the horse with them when
they left and hope to be allowed to start
a breeding farm at the Point, where the
much-sought-after perfect cavalry horse
may be bred by the government. This
Is the first stallion ever owned by the
United States government.
Mrs. W. S. Pattee, wife of Dean Pattee
of the university law school, her son
Richard and daughter paid the exposition
a four-day visit the latter part of the
week. .
Tuesday to Friday of this week the joy
ous bark of the festive dog echoed
throughout Pan-Amdom. The much
promised dog show . took place in the
cattle sheds near the East Amherst gate.
There were over fifty breeds of dog

entered and the show attracted much at
tention.
From Aug. 26 to Sept. 7 will be given
the Pan-American swine . show In the
south division of the cattle sheds. Nine
breeds of swine are being shown.
James MacMullan of Minneapolis, su
perintendent for the Minnesota board of
managers, was absent for several days on
a trip to Charleston, S. C., where he
looked over the forthcoming exposition to
be. held there. Mr. MacMullan is enthu
siastic about the Charleston exposition,
which begins immediately after the close
,of the Pan-American, but the board of
managers will probably not make any ex
hibit from Minnesota there.
Charleston's exposition officials have
been striving in every way to get all the
exhibitors possible to display at their
show after the close of the Pan-Ameri
can. Efforts have been made to induce
Minnesota to take space or build a build
ing, but there is little prospect that
anything will be done.
Special invitations for President's Day,
Sept. 5, will shortly be out. The affair,
because of the expected crowd, will be
largely governed by Invitations, and It is
expected that this may prove the largest
day of the exposition, though New York
Day may exceed it.
The 1 attendance from Minnesota still
holds up well, 267 having registered at the
Minnesota building Sunday to Wednesday,
Inclusive, from the state. Of this num
ber 92 registered from Minneapolis, 67
from St. Paul and 108 from the state at
large. Minneapolis, at least, did her
share. . • ..■ • '■: y ■ ■ '■ t.. '
It looks as though Minnesota would
come well to the front In awards. She
Is sure of at least one gold medal and
her exhibits in all departments have not
been surpassed by any other states. As a
state, Minnesota Is the only one having
a flour booth and is the only state hav
ing a booth in the big Manufacturers and
Liberal Arts building.

Shocking Reform Methods
One of the employes in the repair shops
of the .St. Louis Park car line, at St.
Louis Park, Is something of a practical
joker as well as a practical electrician,
and recently devised a scheme which has
given him no end of. merriment> ever
since and which incidentally has proved
of direct benefit both to himself and j to
his friends. ...
Four men are employed in the shops,
and, at the close of a hot day's work,
they have frequently found that their sup
ply ofdrinklng '• water has been Insuffi
cient to; meet the' demands made upon It.
The tank stands in one corner of the of
fice, and is—or rather | was—patronized by
every thirsty man who chanced in. The.
practical -joker, however, ■ like the French
king, has-changed all that.
Yesterday ' afternoon two of the boys
walked in and asked for a drink. The
joker smiled delightedly.
"Why, sure!" he said. "Help yourself."
culae,, which grew brighter and brighter

shines and smells, and the more it shines
the worse" it smells, for the odor finally
became, so offensive as to drive many
cottagers back to. town, and just about
the time they were settled, presto! the
phosphorescence was gone in a single
night, and the Pacific had taken on its
normal' deep green coloring again. But
the scientists; are still wrangling over
causes and "effects, one faction - claiming
that an infinitesimal bit of still life called
the salpa— modest name for a scientist —
Is responsible for It all. "Some years they
are scarce, but this season seems favora
ble to their production. They form la
chains and come drifting in looking like
necklaces of gleaming '• diamonds, y and
when broken up by the sea, take on the
colors of a prism, the nucleus of the ani

color Is green, but melts into red, which
shows phosphorescent at night. ■* !
However, the ordinary layman, not be

took the phenomena as he found it, with

One of the youngsters walked over to
the tank, picked up the cup and turned on
the water. A minute later his arm gave
a convulsive twitch, he Jumped quickly
to one side, and then, with apparent de
liberation, threw the contents of the cup
full In his friend's face. .
Naturally the second boy got angry.
"What the blazes 'dyou do that for?" he
yelled. Then, he too, picked up the
cup and rushed toward the tank to se
cure ammunition with which to retali
ate. :'"-.•- .' y „.-'-'
Again the joker smiled. He reached
over and pressed a conveniently situated
button, and the second youngster danced
up and down with even more agility than
his friend. The surprise of the boys
tickled the joker to such an extent "that
he relented and gave them some water
himself. , „.'.',"- - .- - ,
Two thin copper wires connecting the
cup with a battery explained the source
of the shocks received by the boys.
