important 'furiosi! port on the lilacs

shore of that, sea, about iifiO miles cat
of its outlet through the Bosporus.
It lies about only one Hundred miles
west of the international boundary be

of the overland trade passing between
central Asia aid Persia und Kuiope.

in recent years the railroad from Hn

val for the camel, nnd the "ship of

the " iron horse.'
