'J7, IMtt. Dear Cotmmii I presume that yon nro nwara that KunM) )omvbsch many wonderful and Interesting tilings and the best way to understand them Is to eomo nnd hoc them, which Is n com pnrntlvely easy matter If one liai tlm where withal. You pay tlio money and the rest follows. To say that 1 have had n very good time Is cxprexslng It very mildly. "To mo tlio gem of pleasure Is to travel and esKel ally In foreign lands. Of the thounud and one places I liavo seen I hardly know which to you would bo tho most iiit;reiiting, lint If I carry you back to n kji lod before Christ was iMlrn it will bo pleasing at least and again because you aro about to have nil ex hibition In Lincoln of 1111 event, which hap pened nearly S.OOO years ago, perhaps an ex cursion from Homo, Italy, to 1'oiuhII and tho Hay of Naples nnd the ascent or Mount Vesuvius would entertain you as fully as many others which I could 1 elate. Hay we relate In detail the grand and uitiKulllcMUt ruins of the Coliseum, which tills 0110 with u deep feeling of tenderness when seen by moonlight, tlio gorgomis fountain of the Trevl whose waters Into which. If n iet.ny be thrown, wl.l Insure the travellers leturn, the dark and damp catau nubs, tho ancient crumbling walls, the beautiful chui dies and, above all others, Ht. Peter aud the Forum, with Its ruined temples, nothing of which now remains to tell the grandeur of its edi fices save a few broken I'ohimi.s and frag ments of marble walls, all of which me only n few things In that old city of Home. Here wenru inn "inall compartment, one of three, which compoHollie available accom modations of travel in n car on an Italian railway. These pens or stalls hold from eight to ten people nnd some of them are quit comfortable A train of hoiiio thlity coaches pulls out of a long g.ass-roof depot, quite modern in apiiearauce, ami we are seeding among the buttle Ileitis of the early Hoiuaus and pass the stone arch viuducls built by Appius Claudius centui les ago. The country presents 11 barren npiearauco, en tirely destitute of trees and somewhat hilly, although the pastures are green and in small heids we see white cattle with very lot.g horns, feeding. A few of them take the trouble to raise their heads to watch us pass by. In two hours wo aro shaded by tall mid slim poplar trees. Fields of hemp, grape vines, swinging like bowers from treo to tree in the orchards, peasants in the Holds and odd looking houses and farm yards greet tho eye as our little wugon bears us along. The air is clear and tho heat is not so intense as it is oppressive. It makes you feel stupid and dull rather than uncomforiabl 1 warm; you tiavn no ambition and you don't caro whether school keeps or not. Our tialn stops evjry now and then at small towns and villages and I was surprised at one place to tee small girls about fifteen years old car rying heivy holds of brick and morter to the tops of buildings. Hard work at the least fot girls. Instead of resting the weight on their shoulders thoy would pick up tho round basins 01' morter or brick from the ground, give It a long swing and set it on top of their head, which was protected by it thick round pad. Too women of Italy work like men as they do nil through Germany. When I see these poor easaut people here from early morn tu late at night I can better realize what it is to be truly oor. In four hours after leaving Home we are in Naples, aud transferred to another car, wo are going to the long buried city of Pom pell. It is very Interesting now. To tho left we see the volumes of smoke anil ashes rolling from tho crater of Mount Vesuvius. At. times tho smoke appears very thin aud again it has increased to n large, rolling cloud, which curls and w hides away till it has faded from view. Tho mountain Is about fifteen miles away. To our right within a stone's throw is the shore of the beautiful blue waters of tho Hay of Naples. Fisherman's boats are pulled out on the beach, tho smoothness of which is broken every now aud then by the black moss-grown rocks, where the water dashes and throws out sprays like pearls. We pass ninny pecu liar houses and tangled villages whose roofs of dome shape are covored with macaroni drying In the sun. The low coast range of the Appenlnes mountains ure in vjew. In an hour we are at the small station of I'om peii, and, winding up a narrow roadway, we stop at n small hotel to wash the. dust from our faces aud take a Ugh repast of soup, beef, chicken (J) and macaroni and n species of bread best described perhaps as several air holes with a tough knotty dough around them. Tho butter could speak tor itself. As wo ate wo listened to strains of inusia from a violin and a guitar played by n man and boy who were as ragged as they were dirty. They stood by the doorway of the dining room, which opened Into the street and wheu they bud finished one of their soul stirring sonatas the man gathered his slouch hat together and pasted it around the table. lie was not any cologne bottle, but we were used to any kind of smells, s wo ate on un moved The present buildings of PoniK)il which lie outside of tho burled city from Ve suvius, which is about six miles away, are low, two stories high aud built of stone and stucco, a sort of moi ter, and are nil of a dirty creamy color. The placets small, with no public buildings or anything of that sort, being mostly dwelling houses; the streets shutlelesM. The Inhabitants are very poor and just how they all live I cannot say, Not walls of children and tlio shoutsof men. One was calling a father, another n son, (mother a lfe;Hoplo could recogulr.it one another by voice. Many besought aid of thu gods, others fancied that they no longer lived and believed this to lie the last nnd eternal night, when the world was to disnpHnr into Its grave." Wo wlllnnw walk through it modern street, and pass within the walls of the old city and thence Into the shade of a narrow alley over n rough pavement which was once a street of I'omiH'il and enter a small building where we ihhi IkhIIos of men, womou aud dogs that have Ihwii dug from the ruins, and who were caught beneith the sea of nihoi and lava over 1,800 years ago. On exhibition also are long glass case full of broad, ra'xr. and fruit, sittery and cooking utensils and many other things that were In use when the catastrophe happened. Pompeii was In every way a Hu man town. The streets nro mved with large xil)gonal blocks of lava anil at each Inter section aie two largo stepping stones on which the people stepped to keep mil of the wet In 1 ulny weather. The nlleys weie not over fourteen feet wide aud tho sheets nel dom wider than twenty-four foot. Tho ruts worn in tho stone pavement by the wagons are plainly seen. Tho sidewalks In many places are barely wide enough for one per son, Tho city, ns wo walk through thenar low alleys and streets and between the half standing walls of houies. from room to room, picscntsn desolate and foreign appearance.. None of the orlgliiul roofs of the buildings re main, but we occasionally see tho ceilings of some of tho rooms nut niiiiy of the frescoes leiuulu on the walls, though' dimmed miine what by long helri? burled In tlio ashes'. Tho princlnl dwellings piesent a very lonesome OKioet to tho street. They have no windows, nothing but n bare wall, once gaily painted in red and yellow. The entrance is made through a. narrow vestibule over mosaic lloois of various designs to nn open court with 11 tqiiuro re-ervolr, into which tho rain fulls dining n shower. Theio Is 110 loof over the com t and the rooms Unit face It on the four si loi receive from It their light. Many of tho houses weie ilehly decorated with fres coos, statuary and fountains. Along tho streets where the small shops were located wo soe tho largo bako ovens where thirty or forty loaves of bread were baked at one time, old stouo mills for grinding tho grain, jars for wine, etc. Kxcavatlous nro now be ing made aud the view of tho city from tlio embankment above Is curious indeed. Tlio city was buried to a depth of twenty feet. In order to make the ascent of Vesuvius that day I was obliged to hurry my Interesting walk in and around these old ruins nnd get onto n horse nt the village with a guide aud stmt for theeiu'or. Tlio lieggars In Italy are something awful and one can hardly move without being nsKea tor n jieimy or so, aud they will take advantage of you lu every way In order to get a fee. Wheu I mounted my noble steed which had lieon named "beefsteak" by some other rider In-fore me, a small boy with whi in hand hold tho bridle and Ik-oiiiho I didn't see lit to hand him 11 few iienules ho began to whip the horse, which made him dunce around lively, much to my dlscomllture, for I am no equestrian of note and it wim with great diflkulty that kept within range of the saddle. He made 1110 feel hoi ry that I had not given him anything which evidently sat Istled him, for he let mo go. Ho had it all his own way aud not being able to talk my language I could not argue with him success fully. He hud 11 whole lot of fun with me und I know it. U'u will soon gallop over it dusty road. I can gallop tlrst class and when it comes to a trot, why, I can always meet tho saddle halfway. Boon wo leave the main mud and enter it narrow lane, with high stono walls on either side, over which hung vines. Past fields of grain mid in vine yinds, of which there are many in Italy. A stop is made at a small town for our guide to change his shoes for odes with thick hobnail soles for climbing over the lava beds. We had trouble heie. He Insisted that It was necesarv to huvo it torch to light our way down, for, as he salJ lu broken English, "The road very bad, very bud; impossible go with out toche. Very dark; have toclio 'two franca. " We, for Frank was with mo, In sisted that we dll not want any torch nnd he insisted that we did, and It took it good ileal of Insisting on our part to convince him that we didn't. Tho Italians try to work all sorts of dodges to extort money from foreigners, but wo tlgmed that if he could return with out a toicli, why, we could ulso. More boys grabbed our horses hero and wanted a fee, but we got nway alive and proceeded on, leavlug Milud tho rough paved streets of this stono house town and were soon riding through tho underbrush and over beds of ashes probably hundred of feet deep. The trees were very few- and no giowth but small bushes, from which I occasionally biokeolf 11 switch with which to slup the back of my slow conveyance, Hfsteuk. The lieds of ashes are black like coal, and Huh as gravel. We soon upproach chunks of lava and our itli or narrow tiai) winds and winds up the mountain side. Heie Is a largo slide of shuggy pieces of lava all piled and strewn in confusion. Much of it lias the up earance of once liemg it boiling mass and, suddenly cooling, was vomited forth from the crater nbove and scattered around the sloMi of the mountain. After a 1 ide of two bom s or so over fields of rough lava, sharp u'd Irregular winding in aud nut, we reach the foot of the cone where wo dismount and start on foot up a very stenp incline. It looks nlmnst directly up. In some places we walk on ashed, but mostly stepping from one piece of luvu to another like a stairway. Four men with straps and a walking stair, wished to assist us in the climb, which is really it hard und tiresome one nnd when we told them that we did not need their assistance thoy laughed and kept on with us thinking we would tire out. Hut "lien it comes to climbing moun tains I am right there nnd I fooled them it trip, lhey finally got tire I out nnd returned. many eople nro to bo seen on the stieets; 1 As we approached the crater wo could hear those wo do see aie coarsely dressed and their I the roar within and when ulnut itOO yards faces have a rather hard ai d iiutrustful look As we look at Vesuvius wo wonder how it could have bulled the place where w stood; It seems too far away. What a terrible and tremendous night it must have been and what const eruuliou aud confusion must have been among the 30,000 people that then in habited the doomed city. Fling, the younger, describes it us follows; "It was ulreudy seven o'clock In the morn ing and yet there was to be seen it faint light like that of twilight, The buildings were shaken by such heavy shocks that there was safety nowhere, We resolved to abandon the city, Ariivod without thocity wo paused, The sou seemed to be turned buck upon itself and to retreat. Over and against us au awful cloud fell to wtch covi lug the sea. Tho ashes begun to fall )iKn us. Turning my head I perceived 11 dense smoke, which was following us and spieadlug itstdf over the ground like u torrent, While wecouU still see I udvised my mother to leave the principal road, lest the ciowd wkloh was fol lowing upon our stop should ciudi us in thu durkness. Hardly had we left it when the durknesHKolufieused tliut we seemed to be not mi involved inn black moonless night, but shut Inn chamlior wlieio every light had been extinguished Theio tin nothing to be heaid but the lamenting of women, the irom ine top we niti to pick our way among tlio fliure where the hot smoke, sulphur and ashes cam J forth. I placed my handkerchief on my face to keep out the fumes ot sulphur. The ashen 011 which w 0 now walked weie very Hue like dust, ami In a few minutes we stood 011 the brink of the yawning crater looking onto u roaring, surging, fuming, foaming mass of locks, lava, water, sulphur und steam nil v with Humes of tlio. A Inrgo burning cauldron filled with a boiling mass. Huge masses of black nnd flerj Ingredients vomit forth nnd fall back Into tho scathing abyss. I should say the crater was a thou sand feet lu diameter aud looked nearly round. It was somewhat dark wjion we reached tlio crater; the sun had only it few minutes ago set behind the hill, but we could see perfectly well. Kino ashen worn falling over us. We remained hero about live mill llUssund then started down by another path over n sen of ashes' or crumbled luvu beds. Tho guide led, I followed and Frank camo behind. At each step our feet sank In the fluosolt IhsI nenrly up to our knees nnd nt each step we cohered fully a distance nl thirty to foi ty root. You know how it Is to step down n stoop sand bank, how the whole bank slide with j oil at each stop and your foot go way out of sight, W11 presented a curious siss'taolo plunging down with tremen dous Mtrldes. Occasionally the guide would warn us of a hurled rock, for If we fell where would we stop, It took us llfty minutes to make the ascent of the cone aud only twelve to descend, teaching the place w here we had loft our horses, we mount and lu an hour Hud our selves on level ground, covered completely fi mil head to foot with dust nnd nshes. I cannot tell you how beautiful was the view of the Hay of Naples by moonlight, with Hit lUr..lliig shore light and shining waters an we r. I g Jigged down tho mountain side. It was enchanting. I have now spun out my little txcuiflon too long, I nm afraid. I lu tended to take you to n little sail on the liny, visiting the lllue Orotto, which Is moio Uuu tlful than can os'(hly bo Imagined, and have dinner on the Inland of Capri, where the view of the bay Is unexcelled, I had heard much or tho Is'iiuty or tho Ilriy of Naples nnd I will say that It fur exceeded my expectations it thousand times over. Ho nuy one contem plating a trip to Italy, I would say, don't rail to vl'lt Naples and the bay and sniiiiI a few dollars for coral and shell combs, which can be bought for a mere song. C. Y. Hmitii.
