Tho man wns a Phrygian, by birth, and oftho royal houso, .and ho came into tho palacoof Crocsu?,, after, tho custom ot that country, arw sought for ono that should clcanso bin. from hls guilt; and Croesus cleansed 1 him. (Now tho mat ter of cloanslag is tho samo, for tho most part, among tho dlans ns It is among tho U rucks.)) And whon tho King hnd dono fo jhlm according to all that was prcscrltad in tho law, ho would fain kuow who. ho was. and whenco ho had como. W.Oiorororo ho asked him, saying, My frlorjJ, who ari thouP And from what cliy of Phrygia-for that thou art a Phrygian I know art thou como to tako sanctuary ni my hearth? And what man or woman didst thouslay? And tho man answered, 'Oil, King, 1 nm the son of Kordias, tho son of Mldias, and my namo is Adrastus, nnd I slow my broth er, not wittingly. For this causo I am como to tho, for my father drovo mo out from homo, and I nm utterly bereft of all things.' To this King Crosnis made reply: 'Thou art tho son of Irlonds and to n friend thou nrt conic. Verily, as long as thou abidest hero thou shalt lack for nothing that I can givo thco. nd ns for thy trouble, it wdl bo best for thee to boar it as easily as may bo.' So tho man lived thenceforth In tho king's palace Now about this tlmo there wasn mighty wild boar in Olympus that is a mountain in Mysla. It had its don In tho mountains, and going out thonco did much damngo to tho possessions ol tho Myslans, nnd the Myslans hnd often sought to slay him, but harmed him not nt all, but rather received liarin themselves. At last thoy sent messen gers to tho king, who stood before him nnd said, 'O, king, a mighty monster of a wild boar hath his abode in our coun try, and destroy oth our possessions, and though wo would lain kill wo ennnot Now, therefore, wo pray thoo that thou wilt send thy son, nnd chosen youths with him, nnd dogs for hunting, thnt thoy may go with us, nnd that wo may drive tho groat beast out of tho land. Ho sent for Ad rastus, tho Phrygian; and whon tho man was como into his prcsenco ho spako savlncr. 'Adrastus. I took thoo when thou wast afflicted with a grlovous trou bio, though with this I upbraid thco not, nnd I cleansed thoo irom thy gull and rccoived thco into my palaco, and sustalnod thoo without nny cost ol thine, Now, thorcforo, it is well that thou sliouldst make mo somo return for all theso benefits. I would mnko thco kcopcr of my son, now that ho goeth forth to his hunting, If it should chanco that anv robbers or such folks should bo found on tho way to do him hurt Moreover, it becomoth the, for thlno own sake, to go on nn errand Irom which thou mayost win ronown.for thou artora royal houso, and besides valiant and strong. To Una Adrastus made answer: 'Oh. king, I had not Indeed gono to this sport but for thy words. For ho to whom such troublo hath como as hath como to mc should not accom. pany with happy men; nor, indeed, hath ho tho will to do it. But now, ns thou art earnest in this matter, I must needs vield to thy rcnucst. Thorcforo 1 am ready to do as thou wilt; bo sure, there foro, that I will dolivor thco thy sou whom thou bldcst 'mo keep, safo and unhurt, so far as his keeper may so do.' So tho young mon departed, and choson youths with them, nnd dogs for hunting, And whon thoy woro como to tho nioun tain of Olympus thoy soarohod for tho wild boar, and when thoy had found it they stood in a circlo about It and throw their snoars at it. And so it fell out that this stranger, tho same that had been cleansed from tho guilt of man slaying, whoso namo was Adrastus, throwing his spear at tho wild boar, and missincr his aim. smoto tho son of Crcosus. Aud tho youth died of tho wound, so that tho vision of tho king was fulfilled that ho should dlo by spoar-polnt. And stralghtwaythoro ran ono to toll tho things to Crmsus. And whon ho had como to Sardisho told tho king how thoy hnd fought with tho wild boar, and how his son had died Ckujus was very grievously troubled by tho death of his son; and this tho more becauso ho had been slain by tho man whom ho had himself cleansed for tho guilt of blood. And in this great grief ho crlod out very vehemently against tho gods, and especially against Zeus, tho god or cleansing, sooing that he had oloant od this stranger, nnd now suffered grievous wrongs at his hands. Ho re preached him also as tho god of bospl tallty and ol friendship of hospitality, becauso ho had entertained this man and know not that ho was ontertalnin1 tho slayor of his own son; nnd of frlonn ship, becauso ho had sont him to bo keeper and frlond to his son, yot had foimd him to bo nn onomy nnd destroyer And whon ho had dono speaking thoro camo Lydlnns bearing tho doad body of tho young man, and tho slayer followed bohlnd. So soon, thorcforo, as tho young man wns como into tho prcsenco of tho king, ho gavo ulmsoll up, street ing" forth his hands, and bidding tho klncr slav him on tho doad body. And ho spako of tho dreadful doed that ho had dono boforo and that now ho had added to it a worso thing, bringing de struction on him thnt had cloaasod him, nnd ho cried out thai ho wa not fit to livo. But when Croasuahoacdalm speak, lie pitied him,- for all that ko was in grlovous troublo of hls own, and spako to him, 'I. havo had) from taoo, O my friend, all (ho vongonitca- that I need, seeing that thou h&abproaouncod son tenco of death against thyself. But Indeed thou art not tho causo of this troublo, saro only that thou!as. brought It to pass unwittingly; somo god is tho causo, tho samo that long slnco fore told mo this vory thing that hath now befallen mc.' So.Gratsus buried hta son with all duo rites. But Adrastus, tho son ot Gordlr tho son of Midas, that had been the slayer of his own brother, and had now slain tho son of him that had cleansed him, waited be hind till nil the,-men had lea tho sopulcbro, and then slow himself up on it, for ho know that of all tho mon in tho world ho. was tho most unhappy."
