GREAT AMERICAN AUTHORS
THE THREE GOLDEN APPLES

IV. THE GIANT AND THE GOLDEN CUP
It was in this journey, if I mistake not, that he encountered a prodigious giant who was so wonderfully contrived by nature that every time he touched the earth he became ten times as strong as ever he had been before. His name s was Antxus. You may see plainly enough that it was a very difficult business to fight with such a feilow, for as often as he got a knock-down blow, up he started again; stronger, fiercer, and abler to use his weapons than if his enemy had let him alone. Thus, the harder Hercules pounded the giant with his club, the further he seemed from winning the victory. I have sometimes argued with such people, but never fought with one. The only way in which Hercules found it possible to finish the battle was by lifting Ant.Tus off his feet into the air, and squeezing and squeezing and squeezing him until finally the strength was quite squeezed out of his enormous body.
When this affair was finished, Hercules continued his travels and went to the land of Egypt; where he was taken prisoner, and would have been put to death if he had not slain the King of the country and made his escape. Passing through the deserts of Africaa and going as fast as he could, he arrived at last on the shore of the great ocean. And here, unless he could walk on the crests of the billows, it seemed as if his journey must needs be at an end.
Nothing was before him save the foaming, dashing, measureless ocean. But suddenly, as he looked toward the horizon, he saw something, a great way off, which he had not seen the moment before. It gleamed very brightly, almost as you may have beheld the round, golden disk of the sun when it rises or sets over the edge of the world. It evidently drew nearer, for at every instant this wonderful obiect be
