The eight English ships were captured

How Camphor IS Made.
Camphor is the result of evaporating an
essential oil found In two different treee
the Cinnamomum camphora, which urowa
in China and Japan, and tht Dipterocjrpua
canipbora of Sumatra and Horneo. rrorn
these two trees it is obtained in verv differ
ent manners. In thf- Cinnamonmm it ex
ists in root and branch, stems and leaves
which are chopped small and put into earth
en vessels, which are heated. These vessels
are covered with hoods, and rice straw is
placed in them. The camphor is volatalized
and rises. It condense on the straw, from
which it is afterward cleared. In the Dip
terocarpus it is found ia the trunk in a sol
id form, and it is obtained by cutting the
tree down and splitting itopeo. Itis found
in pieces from 1 to 2 feet long and about as
thick as u man's arm. A mode-rate sized
tree will yield about 10 pound-? of camphor,
a larger one about twice that quantity.
This kind la more highly esteemed thau tne
other, sothal in Japan 200 pounds of native
camphor are valued at one pound of the
Bornean New York Telegram.
