Hercules and the Wagoner

A WAGONER was once driving a heavy load along a very muddy way. At last he came to a part of the road where the wheels sank halfway into the mire, and the more the horses pulled, the deeper sank the wheels. So the Wagoner threw down his whip, and knelt down and prayed to Hercules the Strong. "O Hercules, help me in this my hour of distress," quote he. But Hercules appeared to him, and said:

"Tut, man, don’t sprawl there. Get up and put your shoulder to the wheel."

"THE GODS HELP THEM THAT HELP

THEMSELVES."
