STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

Then Ulysses gave him the cup again, and he drank. Thrice he gave it to him, and thrice he drank, not knowing what it was and how it would work within his brain.
Then Ulysses said, "You asked my name, Cyclops. Lo !
my name is No Man. And now that you know my name, I ask for the gift."
He said, "My gift shall be that I will eat you last of all your company."
As he spoke, he fell back in a drunken sleep. Then Ulysses bade his comrades be of good cheer, for the time had come when they should be set free from their danger. They thrust the stake of olive wood into the fire till it was ready, green as it was, to burst into flame, and with it they put out the monster's eye; for he had but one eye, and that in the middle of his forehead.
Then the giant leaped up in pain and cried aloud, so that all the Cyclops who dwelt on the mountain side heard him and came about his cave, asking him, "What ails you, Polyphemus, that you make this noise in the peaceful night, driving away sleep? Is any one robbing you of your sheep, or seeking to slay you by craft or force?"
And the giant answered, "No Man slays me by craft."

But the Cyclops rolled away the great stone from the door of the cave, and sat in the opening, stretching out his hands, to feel whether the men within the cave would try to go out with the sheep.
Long did Ulysses think how he and his comrades could best escape. At last he thought of a good plan, and much he thanked Zeus that the giant had driven the rams with
