The "Camphor Tonern?" of n Wild but lo
Ono of tho queerest languages in tho
world, used for the queerest purposes,
is tho "camphor laugungo" of Johore,
a country of tho Malay poniusuln. It has
lately been studied and reported upon
by Mr. Lake, an English engineer in
tho service of tho sultan of Johore. This
language is called tho "Pantang Ka
por," or camphor langnnge, and is used
by tho natives and all others who are
engaged in gathoriug the produet of tho
Malayan camphor treo mid only at thar
time. If they used either of tho larv
guoges of tho region, tho Malay or the
aboriginal Jukun, tho natives believe
that they could not obtain any camphor,
and for a most curious reason. Tho cam?
phor tree, Dryobhmopa cumphoru, grows
abundantly in certain parta of tho pe?
ninsula, but only occasionally contains
camphor crystals. Tho cuinphor is not
the same us that obtained from the cam?
phor laurel of Formosa und Japan,
which is the sourcoof the ordinary cam?
phor of coininoreo. It is u sort very
highly prized by tho Chinese in the em?
balming of their dead, in incense and in
medicine, and tho gum brings much
more than tho common camphor.
The Malayans and other Johoro na?
tives believe that each species of treo
has u spirit or divinity that presides
over its affairs. The spirit of the cam?
phor treo is known by tho name of Iii?
sau?literaliy "a woman." Her resting
place is near the trees, and when at.
night a peculiar noise is heard in the
woods, resembling that of a cicada, the
Bisnu is believed to be tinging, and
camphor will surely bo found in tho
neighborhood. But tho spirit of the cam?
phor tree seems to bo jealous of tho pro
cious gum and must bo propitiated, and
if she knows that hunter^ are in queJ?e
cf it she will endeavor to turn their
steps aside. So it is necessary to speak
in it tongue which she does not under?
stand. For this purpose tho "camphor
language" has been invented. It con?
sists of a mixture of Jakun and Malay
words, but these ure curiously altered
and reversed, and tho natives positively
believe that the divinity of the camphor
tree is completely confused. Tho Jakuus
who hunt the camphor are ono of the
wildest of peoplo, but inoffensive They
