On the way, the three men meet an old man who explains that he must wander the earth until he can  find someone willing to exchange youth for old age. He says that not even Death will take his life.  Hearing him speak of Death, the revelers ask where they can find Death, and the old man directs  them to a tree at the end of the lane. The revelers rush to the tree and find eight bushels of gold  coins, which they decide to keep. They decide to wait for night to move the gold and draw straws to  see which one will go into town to get food and wine. The youngest of the three draws the shortest  straw. When he leaves, the two others decide to killhim and divide his money. The youngest,  however, wanting the treasure to himself, buys poison, which he adds to two of the bottles of wine he  purchases. When the youngest reveler approaches the tree, the two others stab him and then sit

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
