STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

So Aeolus sent him away. Then again they launched their ships and set forth, toiling wearily at the oars, and sad at heart.
Six days they rowed, without resting at night, and on the seventh they came to the city of the Laestrygonians, in whose land the night is as the day, so that a man could earn double wages, if he did not need to sleep.
Here was a fair harbor with cliffs around it. Now Ulysses made fast his ship to the rocks outside, but the others entered the harbor. Then he sent two men and a herald with them, and these came upon a smooth road by which wagons brought down wood from the mountain to the city. Here they met a maiden, the daughter of the king of the land, and asked her who was lord of that country. Whereupon she showed them to her father's lofty palace,-When they entered this, they saw the maiden's mother, big as a mountain, horrible to behold, who straightway called to her husband. The messengers fled to the ships; but the king made a great shout, and there came flocking about him 'the Laestrygonians-giants, not men. They broke off great stones from the cliffs and cast these at the ships and crushed them. Then they speared the men as if they were fishes, and devoured them. This happened to all the ships in the harbor. Ulysses and his ship escaped, and he bade his men ply theiroars, which they did most willingly. Ulysses had startedfrom Troy with twelve ships, and now but one was left.
They sailed on, mourning for their lost comrades, and after many days came to the island where dwelt Circe, the daughter of the Sun. Ulysses took his spear and sword and climbed a hill, for he wished to see what manner of land they had found. And having climbed the hill, he saw smoke rising from the palace of Circe, which stood in the midst of
