STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

roof, with a veil before her face, and a beautiful maiden on each side of her, she said:
" You suitors who devour this house, pretending that you wish to wed me, lo ! here is a test of skill. Here is the bow of the great Ulysses. Whoever shall bend it most easily in his hands, and shoot an arrow through the holes of the twelve axes that ''1~elemachus shall set up, him will I follow, leaving this house, which I shall remember only as a pleasant dream."
Then she bade Eumaeus bear the bow and the arrows to the suitors. The faithful swineherd wept to see his master's bow, and the herdsman wept also, for he was a good man and loved the house of Ulysses.
Telemachus arose and throwing from his shoulders the scarlet cloak, placed the axes, with holes in them, in a straight row with a skill that all admired.
He himself wished to draw.the bow, and indeed would have done so, but Ulysses signed to him that he should not. So he said, "Methinks I am too weak and young; you that are elder should have first trial."
Then first, the priest, who alone among the suitors hated their evil ways, made trial of the bow. He could not move it, and his hands grew tired with it, for they were tender and unused to toil. He said, "I cannot bend this bow; let some other try; but I know it shall be grief to many on this day."
Antinous was wroth to hear such words, and bade a servant bring from the stores a roll of fat, so that with it they might grease the string and soften it. But even then they could not bend it. They all tried in vain, till only Antinous and Eurymachus were left, who indeed were the bravest and the strangest of them all.
Now the swineherd and the herdsman had gone forth out
