A cedar wood received by Schimmel & Co.4) from Hayti yielded 4,33 p. c. of a lemon-yellow oil with an odor that resembled that of the ordinary cedar oil from Juniperus virginiana, L. Nothing definite could be ascertained as to the botanical origin of the wood, but a microscopical examination revealed it as coniferous. The oil obtained differed, however, from the ordinary cedar-wood oil by its higher specific gravity (d15o 0,9612), its lower optical rotation (aD - 14° 58'), and its larger alcohol content (E. V. after acetylation 64,0). The A. V. was 2,7, E. V. 5,0. The oil was not completely soluble in 10 vols, of 90 p.c. alcohol but soluble in every proportion in 95 p. c. alcohol.
