The Blanket Tree.
Blankets grow on trees In Ecuador,
snd. while tbe idea of an all wood
fresh from the forest bed covering
might give insomnia and a backache to
the child of clviiiatlon who likes to
snuggle comfortably under several lay
ers of down and wool, tbe natives find
It all right, as in fact it is.
When an Ecuador Indian wants a
blanket be hunts up a demajagua tree
snd cuts from it n five or six foot sec
tion of the iH-culIarly soft, thick bark.
Tbis is dampened and beaten until the
flexibility of tbe sheet is much Increas
ed. The rough gray exterior i uext
peeled off. and the sheet dried In the

light and fairly warm, of an attractive
cream color. It niny be roiled into a
compact bundle without hurt and with
ordinary usnge will last for several
