GREAT AMERICAN AUTHORS
THE THREE GOLDEN APPLES

in the mood, we may possibly shift about again. You are certainly a very strong man and can never have a better opportunity to prove it. Posterity will talk of you, I warrant."
"Pish! a fig for its talk!" cried Hercules with another hitch of his shoulders. "Just take the sky upon your head one instant, will you? I want to make a cushion of my lion's skin for the weight to rest upon. It realiy chafes me and will cause unnecessary inconvenience in so many centuries as I am to stand here."
" That's no more than fair,, and I'll do it," quoth the giant; for he had no unkind feeling toward Hercules, and was merely acting with a too selfish consideration of his own ease. "For just five minutes, then, I'll take back the
sky. Only for five minutes, recollect. I have no idea of spending another thousand years as I spent the last. Variety is the spice of life, say !"
Ah, the thick-witted old rogue of a giant! He threw down the golden apples and received back the sky from the head and shoulders of Hercules upon his own, where it rightly belonged. And Hercules picked up the three golden apples that were as big or bigger than pumpkins, and straightway set out on his journey homeward without paying the slightest heed to the thundering tones of the giant, who bellowed after him to come back. Another forest sprang up around his feet and grew ancient there, and again might be seen oak trees six or seven centuries old that had waxed thus aged betwixt his enormous toes.
And there stands the giant to this day; or, at any rate,
there stands a mountain as tall as he and which bears his name; and when the thunder rumbles about its summit, we may imagine it to be the voice of Giant Atlas bellowing after Hercules.
