Brazil's Name.

a vuln search for the supposed Island

try took the name from the I last In- '
dies. For ninny years lief ore the dlseov- I
cry of Brazil iiii'ichauH had brought
from tho east for the iimj of dyers a j
wood which yielded a beautiful red
color-brasill or brasilly. The West

Brazil contains thorn In more abun
dance than any other country. So that
Brazil wood Is not called so uftcr tho
