STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

But Telemachus spoke thus, "Mother, the bow is mine to give or to refuse. And no man shall hinder me, if I wish that this stranger make trial of it. But go to your chamber with your maidens, and let men take thought for these things."
This he said, for he wished her to depart from the hall at once, knowing what would happen. But she marveled to hear him speak with such authority, and answered not, but departed. When Eumaeus was about to carry the bow to Ulysses, the suitors spoke roughly to him, but Telemachus urged him to go. Therefore he took the bow and gave it to Ulysses. Then Eumaeus went to Eurycleia, and bade her shut the door of the women's chambers and keep them inside, no matter what they might hear. The herds man also shut the doors of the hall and fastened them with a rope.
Ulysses handled the great bow, trying it, whether it had taken any hurt, but the suitors thought scorn ef him. Then,. when he had found it to be without a flaw, just as a minstrel fastens a string upon his harp and strains it to the pitch, so he strung the bow, without toil, and holding the string in his right hand, he tried its tone, and the tone was sweet as the voice of a bird. Then he took an arrow from the quiver, and laid the notch upon the string and drew it, sitting as he was, and the arrow passed through every hole and stood in the wall beyond.
