Ex Fumo Dare Lucem
To give light from smoke.
        Horace.—Art of Poetry. [Motto of the Liverpool Gas Company.]
One with a flash begins, and ends in smoke,
The other out of smoke brings glorious light.
        Roscommon.—Horace’s Art of Poetry.
Sudden to glare, and in a smoke expire;
But rises from a cloud of smoke to light.
        Francis.—Horace’s Art of Poetry. Line 206.
