"The Japanese believe that the cut

a Journey will bring misfortune to
the traveler when he reaches his des

CITY IN BEAUTIFUL SETTING
First Sight of Constantinople Cannot
Fall to Impress Even the Most
Satiated Globe Trotter.
However many descriptions of Con
stantinople may have been read or
heard previously, the actual slirht of
it must certainly come to every one
with a feeling almost of astonishment
at the sheer beauty of the pi act.
Certainly It can be ft matter of sur
prise to no one that Conxtuntlne ch-?e
Byzantium as the spot from which to
rule the East, for surely no city ever
had a more magnificent situation.
Whether seen from the deck of the
steamer, as it nears Constantinople,
coming up from the sea of Ma mora,
or from the h-ad of the Colden Horn,
or from the heights of I'era opposite,
or even from the ii:ilata bridge, Staro
boul, rising from the brilliantly blue
wnters which surround It on three
sides, must always take first place for
loveliness among nil the beautiful
cities of the woiltl. In May. wht-n ail
the Judas trees are a mas of pinkish
blossom and the wistaria hang In
pendant pale mauve masses above the
narrow streets between the old wood
en houses, Ktamtroiit Is perhaps bt-nutl-ful
above all months In the year.
When Alchemy Flourished.
The cult of alchemy was nt Its zenith
durfng the fourteenth, fift.-enth, and
sixteenth centuries, holding the place
with many that religion did with oth
ers. People believed implicitly In the
existence of the philosopher's stone,
and pinned their fulth to Its jwtenry
to nn Incredible extent. It was, of
course. In the great majority of enses.
simply a matter of suggestion a rr pl
ed by those who were on the outlook
for the mea ns of I ncreu s I ng wea It li.
And there were many who drew no
distinction between the philosopher's
stone, which wns upiosed to have
the power of transmuting the base Into
tin- noble metals, and what wns calb-d
the elixir of life, n snlwtance wMi-h
would promote and preserve health
and inen-ase longevity. Thus the ap
peal w us o Iso made to cn-d 11 1 1 1 y
through the desire for health nnd the
fear of disease.
Measuring the Height of Clouds.
A scientist atlr.ctH-d to one of the
bureaus nt Washington has been en
gaged In measuring tb height of
clouds by photography. Simultane
ous pictures of a cloud were made by
two cameras placed fiiiO fnet apart iin!
connected by telegraph wires. From
the amount of displacement of the
cloud caused by viewing It alternately
from each end of the 00 foot bate line
Its height could be calculated. Some
of the "innckerel sky" cloud- photo
graphed were seven nnd a quarter
mile high. The loftiest chm-ls who-e
elevntlon was thus measured Iwdonged
to the type known ns rirrus, or Vurl
cloud," the height of which was n lit
tle more than seventeen mil.
