Abstract

87 they were obliged to place one ear on the ground and to stop the upper ear closely that they might not hear that dreadful sound, nor even so could they avert the death of very many of them from this cause." When the natives were asked why they lived underground, "they said that at one time of year when the sun rises there is so much noise that men can in no way bear it, - as was said above about the Tartars. Moreover they used to beat then on gongs and drums and other instrumcnts that they might not hear that sound." And in a Chinese book of the early fifteenth century £ in the Cam- bridge University Library there is a picture of' the sun setting noisily in the land of 1) to the accompaniment of gong, drum, and horns; with a note which says: "In the e;ening. when the sun sets the noise is like thunder. The king of the country always gathers a thousand men on the city walls to blow horns, sound gongs, and beat drums to drown the sound of the sun. Otherwise the little children would die of fright."
