STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

Then the King bade the minstrel sing again. When he had done so, the King's two sons danced together; and afterwards they played with the ball. The one bent backward and threw it cloud-high; the other leaped upward and caught it lightly before his feet touched the ground.
Afterwards the King said, "Let us each give this stranger a mantle and a tunic and a talent of gold." They all said that it should be so.

When they were seated at the feast, Ulysses sent a portion of his meat to the minstrel with a message that he should sing to them of the long ten-years' war between the Greeks and the Trojans, and how, through the craftiness of
