All East Washington and alargcpartof
West Washington were edified yesterday
morning by the picturesque vision in the
skv ovar the Capitol of a flock ot kites in
all colors. Thore-were seven in all five
yellow ones, one red and one red, white
and blue. The- kites were the traction

the air Mr. Eddy's camera to photograph
the Capitol and tlie 'United States flag.
Yesterday morning' the wind was good
and strong, altlwugll the atmospheric con
ditions were notf'the b-st ror photography.
Monday the wind wasfrom the west, which
"made taking pictures from the Marine
Hospital root Impossible, an the kite strings
were drawn awuy at right angles to the
north and south llneiot tlie Capitol.
Yesterday morning the wind was north
east, width pulled the kites about 20 de
grees east of the- Capitol line. The first
kite went up with a rush. It was six
feet in diameters Then another was at
tat-hed to the original string and then
another and another until five of the yel
low plungers were5 In the air. The wind
wan strong Some of the kites performed
the mos c-urious unties.
Tiiey have no tails, which fact appears
to have the same effect on them in a
sudden gust of wind as a banana peel
does on a man getting Lome from amid
nijfhc meeting. They darted about in the
most drunken fashion, the particularly
amusing feat being the imitation of a
tumbler pigeon. Then they would dart up
into the air 'ike g-jld fish from the bottom
or their jars, embrace each otner, Kias
each other, get themselves and tHelr strings
all tangled up and then all ot a sudden
float out all right again
After a half hour ot this exhibition
two oti.er kites, each nine reet in diameter
were launched One of them was deep red

made tne pull on the main string twenty

They were all about in the thade

thing i n Washington ill be the kite face."
They gazed and gazed and marveled much,
and they marveled more when a big
Unned States flag began to rise over the
top ot the Marine Hospital.
The flag was 20 by 1 2. When it started
the lower kites, the red ami the red, white
nnd blue, were opposite the Capitol dome
For tlie flag to reach that position ic was
necessary to let the kites out 1,500 feet
higher, airi they rose beautifully, notwith
standing the pull, the string being paid out
by a windlass.
The flag rose above the goddess ot lib
erty about 800 feet, and It was estimated
at that time that the remote yellow kite
was :i,00u feet from the tap of the Marine
The i-ffect was startling. Thousands
of people stopped u. while, and nearly
everybody craned his or her neck out ot
tlie street cars to observe the unusual
sight. Old Glory was never so high in
Washuigton before, although maybe Mc
Clellan did order one of them up in the
balloons 'in the other side of the river
from which he took telescopic views of the
