Violin Experiments


Mount Vernon Signal (Mount Vernon, Kentucky)
May 18, 1906

Transcribed by Steve Green

In some violin experiments in a menagerie the influence of the instrument was greatest on the puma, which became much excited when lively music was played but was soothed by slower melodies. Wolves showed an appreciative interest, lions and hyenas were terrified, leopards were unconcerned, while monkeys stared in wonder at the performer.
