" The garden of the Hesperides!" cried one. "We thought mortals had been weary of seeking it after so many disappointments. And pray, adventurous traveler, what do you want there?"
" A certain king, who is my cousin," replied he, "has ordered me to get him three of the golden apples."
" Most of the young men who go in quest of these apples," observed another of the damsels, "desire to obtain them for themselves or to present them to some fair maiden whom they love. Do you, then, love this king so very much?"
" Perhaps not," replied the stranger, sighing. "He has often been severe and cruel to me. But it is my destiny to obey him."
" And do you know," asked the damsel who had first spoken, "that a terrible dragon with a hundred heads keeps watch under the golden apple tree?"
" I know it well," answered the stranger, calmly. "But from my cradle upward it has been my business, and almost my pastime, to deal with serpents and dragons."
The young women looked at his massive club and at the shaggy lion's skin which he wore, and likewise at his heroic limbs and figure, and they whispered to each other that the stranger appeared to be one who might reasonably expect to perform deeds far beyond the might of other men. But then the dragon with a hundred heads! What mortal, even if he possessed a hundred lives, could hope to escape the fangs of such a monster? So kind-hearted were the maidens that they could not bear to see this brave and handsome traveler attempt what was so very dangerous, and devote himself most probably to become a meal for the dragon's hundred mouths.
