Text Appearing Before Image:
everj^thing in the world, and who madethings happen just as they pleased. These gods, they believed, could make themselveslook like anything they wanted to—so exactly likethat not even the brightest eyes could tell the dif-ference. And the old Greeks used to be very fondof telling their children stories about the times whenthe gods made themselves look like human beingsand came to visit men and women. Then the peoplewhom they visited did not guess that their guestswere not men and women just like themselves, andsometimes this was very unpleasant; for if the godsdid not like w^hat people were doing and saying,they punished the offenders. One of the storieswhich the Greek children liked best you may readhere. One day the king of the gods, the wisest and 431 432 Baucis and Philemon strongest of them all, whose name was Jupiter,called one of his sons to him and said: Come, Mercury, let us go and see how the peoplein Phrygia are behaving themselves.

Text Appearing After Image:
MERCUKT ° tJUPITER miv wtnnvi i wnil-t Mercury was always very glad to go any placewith his father, and in a very little while he wasready. But, my son, said Jupiter, you cannot wear Baucis and Philemon 433 your wings. Everybody who sees you will guesswho you are. O father, cried Mercury, I get so tired with-out my wings. Never mind, replied the father; you may takeyour staff, which will help you just as much.Nobody will notice that. It must have been a very strange staff which couldbe as much help to a boy as a pair of wings, andso, indeed, it was. For it had two little wings ofits own, and it made the person who carried it solight that he could scarcely keep his feet on theground. The clothes which Jupiter and Mercury put onfor this trip were old and shabby, and so, whenthey came to the town in Phrygia which they meantto visit, people thought they were just beggars.Now, if they had come riding on fine horses, andwearing gold chains about their necks and diamondrings on their finger
