Jativa and Bal were attacked by mandyas, the latter place being abandoned immediately.
The mandyas say that they migrated to Mysore from some place near Tirupati.
With the mandyas and Debabons, they have helped to reduce the once extensive Maggugan tribe to the remnant that it is to-day.
The products of the Manbo loom are not as numerous and artistic as those of the mandyas.
This is a custom more prevalent among the mandyas than among the Manbos.
I have been told by mandyas on several occasions that they were still manbo, that is, still unbaptized.
The Manbo lives in as dark forests and on as lofty mountains as those occupied by mandyas.
Even the little stalls erected by mandyas for the married couples are very seldom to be found.
I judge them to be the result of intermarriage between the Maggugans and the mandyas.
This fashion is not very prevalent even on the upper Agsan, and is probably adopted from the mandyas.
