Unexpected Fireworks

As night approaches, a drunkard, belated, can no longer find his way. He falls before the shop of a pyrotechnist and goes to sleep under a gas-jet. There come along some of those fellows who swarm the streets of Paris in the evening, fellows who are fit for nothing and good at anything. At the sight of this belated sleeper the idea comes to them of making sport with him. They force open the door of the pyrotechnist and grab different pieces of fireworks which they place around the hapless sleeper. It is intensely funny to see the leaps and the astonished expressions of the unfortunate fellow when the pieces of fireworks go off around him all at once. Exceedingly comical subject.
