But the Rain Gods, who dwelt on the peaks withheld the rain and the invaders were forced to flee, for the land became a great and wa- terless desert, But the invaders, who had con- quered the country, and then aban- doned it when the gates of rain were closed, had meanwhile established a mighty empire in the south, extend- Ing from ocean to ocean and far Into the north. They had numerous stone gods which they worshiped, and images of these gods they placed over all the land; It was their custom that these stone gods should be decked with gold and silver which they took from the rocl~s in their own country.

Origin. 1 The story of nmderh furniture right- ly begins with the ermnbllng of the Middle ages. The haronlal hall stage, with its re]Iglous formality, combined with Its rugged simplicity, was being followed by a more withdrawn, domes- tie and luxurious life. As always, this was reflected in the furniture. The strong and simple high and narrow Gothie style, with Its characterlstle pointed arch, began to be debased. France is said to be the first court. try to be Influenced by the Italian Re- naissance, but there the Gothic and the classic clashed. The process of grafting the Italian style on the Gothic hardly began in England until 1550, when it was nearly completed in France. By the end of Elizabeth's reign. 1603. there was a semblance of unity, and the Jacobean period ere. ated itself.
