First Known Eruption in A. D. 79 De-
stroyed Herculanaeum and Pompeii
~-8ince Then Some Villages Have
Been Overwhelmed Twice and
Thrice—Ten Years of Activity—
Fatality of 1872.
Vesuvius has been more than ordi-
narily active within the past few years,
offering a spectacle of keen interest
of which tourists Lave not failed to
take advantage.
In 1895, 1899, and 1903 the moun-
tain's energies have been violent
enough to convey dreadful suggestions
of possible disaster, but happily they
were only suggestions.
The present eruption, which began
thirteen days ago, has been heralded
by many signs of trouble, extending
back to last spring. At one time, last
June, the Prefect of Naples felt suffi-
cient apprehensions to cause him to
warn the teeming population about the
sides of Vesuvius to be prepared to
abandon their homes at a signal.
The fertile slopes of Vesuvius have
attracted from the most ancient times
a swarming population of vine-growers
and farmers, and a great number of
hamlets and villages dot the country
about, together with the large towns
of Portici, Resina (on the site of an-
cient Herculaneum), Torre del Greco,
Torre Annunziata, Oltanjo, Boscoreale,
and Anastasia, places of 10,000 to 2
000 inhabitants.
The magnificent scenery, with its
charm of outlock upon the Bay of
Naples, has led hundreds of persons to
build handsome country seats along
and near the shore, one of the most
noted being Favorita, the chateau oc-
cupied by Ismail Pasha, once Khedive
of Egypt. .
The first recorded eruption of Vesu-
vius was that which destroyed Hercu-
laneum and Pompeii, Aug. 29, 79, A.
D. Sixteen years before that an earth-
quake seriously damaged those two
cities, both populous ‘‘summer re-
sorts” of the wealthier Romans.
On the fatal day, familiar te all
readers through Bulwer’s tale, the
mountain burst and buried under ash-
es and lava the two cities and all the
surrounding vilages. It is estimated
that 60,000 perished then.
It was by that eruption that the
present peak was formed. Before
that, there is good reason to believe
what is now called “Monte Somma,” a
rounded crater surrounding the cone,
was the extreme height of the moun-
The height of Mount Vesuvius va-
ries from 3,900 to 4,200 feet, according
to the growth or subsidence of the lava
Vesuvius rested for 124 years.
Again, in the year 203, under Septi-
mus Severus, there was an eruption
worth recording. In 472 the volcano
belched ashes, which fell in all then
known parts of Europe and even in
Africa. Other violent disturbances
appear in the records of 512 and 982.
The first reported discharge of li-
quid lava appeared in the year 1036.
Down to the year 1150 there had
been nine eruptions in all. From that
year to 1631 the volcano was quiet,
but in that year there was a tremen-
dous flow of lava, with violent explo-
sions and the discharge of torrents of
boiling water. This eruption over-
whelmed the places now most in peril
—Torre Annunciata, Torre del Greco,
Resina, Portici, and Boscoreale.
There are authentic and detailed
descriptions of this eruption. Vesu-
vius was wholly covered in that year
with woods and bushes, and cattle
were taken to graze within the crater.
On Dec. 16, 1631, a huge cloud of
smoke and ashes arose in conical
form, making day like night in Naples,
ten miles from the summit. The
cloud extended over the whole south-
ern portion of Italy, as far as Taren-
tum. Heavy stones were thrown ten
miles. Ome weighing twenty-five tons
fell in the village of Somma. The
earth was convulsed by terrific earth-
quakes and seven streams of lava
poured out, overflowing the doomed
villages. In all, 3,000 lives were de-
stroyed in this disaster.
From May to August, 1707, the vol-
cano was in constant eruption, show-
ering ashes upon Naples and keeping
that city in a long-continued state ot
panic. Vesuvius was again persistent-
ly active from 1717 to 1737. In 1760
and 1767 active, severe eruptions oc-
curred, the latter sending lava into
Portici, five miles southeast of Naples,
and scovial fell in the city itself. Red
hot stones in vast numbers were hurl-
ed 2,000 feet above the crater in 1779,
spreading terror throughout the again
populous neighborhood of the moun-
Again the lava flow claimed many
human victims in 1794. This eruption
was the first to be observed in the
modern scientific spirit by men of
Franklin’s cast of mind. The streams
of lava precipitated themselves into
the sea beside Torre del Greco, and
more than 400 persons perished there.
Ashes from the volcaro fell as far
away as Chilti and Taranto. This
eruption tore a hole in the side of the
mountain near its base, which filled
up with molten lava. One of the lava
streams was estimated as containing
more than 46,000,000 cubic feet.
Leopold von Buch observed the
eruption of 1805, and Humboldt that of
1822. In the latter year the whole
top of the cone was blown off, and a
chasm 3 miles in circumference and
more than 2,000 feet deep was formed.

1855 came the impressive demonstra-

Some Cases of Hallucination.
According to a Detroit surgeon,
there are many sane persons who, be-
lieving that they are threatened with
some dangerous disease, insist on un-
dergoing severe operations in order
that their lives may be saved
“We do not really perform these
operations,” he explains in the News
Tribune, “but I have assisted at many
imaginary ones to gratify the whim
of a patient suffering from some form
of hysteria.
“We had a young girl here a year
ago with a most obstinate attack of
hysteria which took a very curious
form. She would never lie down in
her bed, but invariably sat bolt up-
right with her back against the foot
rail, constantly turning her head from
side to side like an automaton.
“l had watched her do this many
times, and one day I asked her why
she continued it, to which she re-
plied that there was a string in her
head which pulled it from side to
side, and that until it was cut she
would have no rest.
“This remark gave me an idea, and
I asked if she would allow me to ex-
amine her head. She was perfectly
willing, and after an inspection last-
ing twenty minutes 1 gravely an-
nounced that she was quite right, and
that the only cure was slight opera-
tion in order to sever the string.
“She clapped her hands with de-
light like a child and declared that it
was what she had told several doe-
{ tors, but that they had all laughed
her. Would I perform the opera-
{ tion at once? I thought it better,
| however, to defer doing so until the
morning, after I had consulted the
visiting surgeons.
“Having explained the circumstanc-
, the imaginary operation was
agreed upon, and the following morn-
ing the young woman was led into
the surgery, placed upon the operat-
ing table and anaesthetics were ad-
ministered. Part of her luxuriant
brown hair was cut off, and a portion
of the back of the head two inches
above the nape of the neck was
i shaved smooth.
“Then, in order that there should
be something to show for the imag-
inary operation, the scalp was 'lanced
until the blood ran, leaving a cut
about two and a half inches in length.
This was bound but not strapped and
the patient was conveyed back to her
bed, where she remained for forty
| minutes before returning to con-
i “Meantime I had taken a piece of
an ordinary E vielin string about
four inches long and soaked it in
water until it resembled a raw sinew,
the object of this, of course, being to
show the patient the actual string
taken out of her head. When she re-
turned to consciousness she was told
how entirely successful the operation
had been and shown the string which
had been the cause of all’her trouble,
after which she fell into a natural
sleep and awoke perfectly restored.
From that day to this she has been
entirely cured of her hallucination.”
Racer Now Missionary
Securely moored to her berth in
Manning's yacht basin, South Brook-
lyn, surrounded -by modern craft il-
lustrative of the fastidious tastes of
the yachtsmen of today, lies the old
schooner-yacht Fleetwing, she whose
reputation was made on the broad
Atlantic nearly half a century ago,
but instead of trying to win silver
cups, as of yore, she is now used as
a means of winning souls.
Little is known of the quiet, but
nevertheless effective work that is
being carried on within the cabin of
this old-time racing craft, in the ef-
fort to redeem the misguided sailor
and bring him to a closer relation-
ship with his Maker. Barely any
change has been made in the old boat
below deck, but otherwise there is lit-
tle to impress the visitor and suggest
anything of her former character. All
standing rigging has been stripped,
and in place of her fore and main
masts there are two poles which
serve the purpose of flying any flags
that may be desired. The main cabin
still retains much of its old-time ap-
pearance, the only suggestion of the
present service being in the hanging
of scriptural quotations on the sides
of the cabin and the presence of a
parlor organ, which is used during
the divine service.
The circumstances which led up
to its present use are interesting.

A Chained Library.
Wimbourne, Ireland, is noted for
many things, but its famous chained
library is, perhaps, the most notable
of its curiosities. The library pos-
gesses unique interest, as being one
of the earliest attempts to dissemin-
ate knowledge among the people.
The collection was made accessible
to the people in 1686 and numbers
some 200 volumes. The scarcity of
books and the value of the collection
are both indicated in the care taken
for their preservation, and especially
against loss of such treasures by
theft. By means of chains and rods
the books were securely fastened to
the shelves and these chains, it is
rather surprising to learn, were not
renewed until 1857. Among the in-
teresting works of the collection
