I'ain's magnificent spectacle, "An
cient Home," will be presented by tlie
Retail Merchants' association at the
baseball park nig-htly Aug-. 24 to Aug.
30. It will be a superb atTair, be in?
beyond question the most elaborate

tempted. In the different cities where

presented it is given the highest
praise by the press. The Detroit Jour
nal in speaking- of its presentation
there u few days ago says:
"A crowd that for size resembled
the big Kpworth league assemblies of
last week, gathered in the amphithe
atre out 0T1 Jefferson avenue Monday
night to watch the destruction of an
cient Rome as portrayed by I'ain's
"It was a pretty scene that met
their eyes. Home, the imperial city,
lay before then in miniature. There
were the stately buildings apparently
clinging to the strong walls, the tem
ple of Vesta and the basilica, the clas
sic columns carrying one's imagina

whose life was to be portrayed. To
add to the reality of the scene white

"Xero and Poppea, lYtronius anil
other historic figures took part in the
pantomime. Xero and his friends
joined in an org-ie which ended at the
temple. After a series of acrobatic
events, parallel bar exhibits and
dances, including the striking lire
dance, the Christians- were brought
before, the emperor, when suddenly
the city was discovered to be on fire.
The scene which followed was im
pressive, l'eople flew in all directions
as the walls of the city blazed fierce
ly and fell in ruins. The usual dis
play of fireworks closed the evening.
There were the two balloon ascen
sions, the falling stars, and a half
dozen set pieces. Among the latter
was a portrait of Mayor Maybury."
Generally fair tonight and
Tuesday; slightly warmer.
