STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

For when the master is away, the slaves are careless of their duty."
As he spoke, the dog Argus, looking up at Ulysses, dropped his head upon the ground and died. Twenty years had he waited for his master, and he saw him at last.
After this the two entered the hall. When Telemachus saw them, he took from the basket bread and meat, as much as his hands could hold, and bade a servant carry them to the beggar, and also to tell him that he might go around among the suitors, asking alms. So he went, stretching out his hand, as though he were in the habit of begging; and some gave, having pity upon him, and wondering about him, asked who he was. But, of all, Antinous was the most shameless. For when Ulysses came to him and told him how he had riches and power in former days, Antinous mocked him, saying, "Get away from my table."
Then Ulysses said, "Surely your soul is evil though your body is fair; for though you yourself sit at another man's feast, yet you will give me nothing."
Antinous, in great wrath, took the stool on which he sat and threw it at Ulysses, striking his right shoulder. But Ulysses stirred not, but stood as a rock. In his heart he thought of revenge. But he went back and, standing at the door, he said:
"Hear me, suitors of the Queen! Antinous has struck me because I am poor. May the curse of the hungry light on him, therefore, ere he come to his marriage day."
The other suitors, too, blamed Antinous for his cruelty to the stranger. The Queen, also, was angry when she heard it, as she sat in the upper chamber with her maidens.
That evening, after the suitors departed to their own dwellings, Ulysses and Telemachus took all the arms from
