The underlying idea is that the .infant, by hearing the sacred music is inspired to a sense of virtue and high moral ity. It is also believed that if the player is not a man - of virtue the sound -of the stringed instrument will not be harmonious. The child being named, the-, birth and name will be formally reported ' to the spirit of Amaterasu Omokami, the.

Its name is de rived from the province of -Apgora, where almost all the animals of what ever1 species have long fine silky hair. Over a hundred years ago 'the beauty , of the Angora rabbit attracted atten tion, and it was" introduced to Europe. The peasants of Switzerland, Savoy and Flanders have long bred the ani mal, and in those countries Angora rabbits are a source of considerable profit. Soft furry "Angora" caps and mittens and other articles of clothing are knit from yarn spun from the hair of the Angora rabbit. The hair is not sheared periodically, like the fleece of sheep, but is combed off. every few months.-. In the course of a year some three-quarters of a pound of hair is obtained from a single animal.
