and continued to give it to them until
they had taken one-half dozen ibottles

I There are many legends concerning
the origin of music, but it is impossible
to say which is the oldest. By the old
Romans the god Mercury was credited
with the invention of masic. According
to Apollodorus, tlie belief was as
follows: The Nile after an overflow
left on the shore a dead tortoise. Its
flesh was finally dried ud by the hot
sun, so that nothing remained in the
shell but the cartilages, whicli, being
braced and contracted by the heat became
sonorous. Mercury, happening to
be walking that way and striking his
foot against the shell, was so pleased
Tirith tho snnnrl nroduced that the idea
of a lyre presented itself to Ms imagination.
He immediately constructed
the instrument in tie form of a tortoise
and strung it with the sinews of
dead animals. And so music began.
