There Is little doubt what ever that Its birthplace "waa in India Xni. that It Is an offspring of a gams called chaturanga, which Is mentioned In Oriental literature as in use fully 200 years before the Christian era.

The game was In all probability invented for the purpose of illustrating the art of war. The Arab legend upon this point i that It was devised for the instruction of a young despot by his father, a learned Brahmin, to teach him that a king, notwithstanding his power, was dependent for his safety upon his sub jects. The Greek historians credit the Invention of the game to Palainedes, who, they claim, devised it to beguile the tedium of the siege of Troy during the Trojan war. Atlanta (Ga) Mail and Express.
