"The bark oil of a tree! Huhl Does
the tree grow around here?"
"No, It grows In very hot countries
like Asia and the West Indies; but the
very best cinnamon comes from Cey
lon." "Ceylon? Where Is that?" Jamie
asked. "I don't think we have studied
about that place at school."
"Perhaps you haven't yet. Ceylon
is an island tn the Indian Ocean, a very
old and wonderful island, green with

"1 suppose so, for cionatuuu nas

Testament of the Bible mentions it,
and I suspect that It was used many
years before the birth of Christ. Yuu
know the Egyptians embalmed their
dead in spices, and. perhaps they used
cinnamon as one of the spices."
"Oh, yes! Mummies like wesaw at

our pear trees and has leaves shaped
something Wrethctrs, oval-shape and
about six inches in length. Did you
ever see a sassafras tree?"
"That la the tree that people take
the bark off of and make tea out of
it to drink In the spring, Isn't It?"
"Yes, that Is it. The cinnamon tree
Is a sort of cousin of the sassafras
tree. They .both belong t- Hit Laurel
family." -
"How funny!" laughed tfamle. "Are
the cinnamon trees wjld like the sassa
fras?" "No, Jho cinnamon trees, are very
carefully cultivated, for the tale of
cinnamon amounts to a great deal of
money. Some of the cinnamon groves
that were planted over a . hundred
years ago are still producing cinnamon-,
and 11 is said that their lives' are no!
half over. . Only the bark of the new
branches on a! cinnamon tree Is cut
off; the bark of the trunk is not used."
"Why njt?" Jamie wanted to fcnow'.
' "Because the bark of thajoung
shoots is the best flavored," answered
his mothi'i "especially the shoots that
spring up around the stump after the
Old tree Is cat down. Did you ever
see any bark cinnamon?"
"No, the only kind I have ever seed

the little boy.
Jamie's mother went out Into the
kitchen and pretty soon she came back
with a little bag In which there were
pieces, of light Itrowivatuff about the
length of your finger. They were
curled up like rolls of paper, and they
broke' off very easily when Jamie
pressed a piece with his finger. ;
