Three drops of blood fell into thesnow.

Asproof that she is dead bring her lungs and her liver back to me.

Ashliman's , a library of folktales, folklore, fairy tales, and mythology.
There was a little table with seven littleplates, seven little spoons, seven little knives and forks, seven littlemugs, and against the wall there were seven little beds, all freshly made.

Snow-White was now all alone in the great forest.

As she sewed, she looked up at the snowand pricked her finger with her needle.
1 And Tobias went forward, and the dog followed him, and he lodged the first night by the river of Tigris.2 And he went out to wash his feet, and behold a monstrous fish came up to devour him.3 And Tobias being afraid of him, cried out with a loud voice, saying: Sir, he cometh upon me.4 And the angel said to him: Take him by the gill, and draw him to thee. And when he had done so, he drew him out upon the land, and he began to pant before his feet. 5 Then the angel said to him: Take out the entrails of the fish, and lay up his heart, and his gall, and his liver for thee: for these are necessary for useful medicines. 6 And when he had done so, he roasted the flesh thereof, and they took it with them in the way: the rest they salted as much as might serve them, till they came to Rages the city of the Medes.


She was terriblyafraid, and began to run.

Now the queen was the most beautiful woman in all the land, and veryproud of her beauty.
indeed you shall not go away, but I shall have both of you."At the end of the year, Silver-Tree went to the glen, where there wasthe well, in which there was the trout.

8 But Raguel said to his son in law: Stay here, and I will send a messenger to Tobias thy father, that thou art in health.9 And Tobias said to him: I know that my father and mother now count the days, and their spirit is grievously afflicted within them. 10 And when Raguel had pressed Tobias with many words, and he by no means would hearken to him, he delivered Sara unto him, and half of all his substance in menservants, and womenservants, in cattle, in camels, and in kine, and in much money, and sent him away safe and joyful from him.

11 Saying: The holy angel of the Lord be with you in your journey, and bring you through safe, and that you may find all things well about your parents, and my eyes see your children before I die. 12 And the parents taking their daughter kissed her, and let her go: 13 Admonishing her to honour her father and mother in law, to love her husband, to take care of the family, to govern the house, and to behave herself irreprehensibly.

She ran over sharp stones and through thorns theentire day.

1 But as Tobias made longer stay upon occasion of the marriage, Tobias his father was solicitous, saying: Why thinkest thou doth my son tarry, or why is he detained there? 2 Is Gabelus dead, thinkest thou, and no man will pay him the money? 3 And he began to be exceeding sad, both he and Anna his wife with him: and they began both to weep together: because their son did not return to them on the day appointed. 4 But his mother wept and was quite disconsolate, and said: Woe, woe is me, my son; why did we send thee to go to a strange country, the light of our eyes, the staff of our old age, the comfort of our life, the hope of our posterity? 5 We having all things together in thee alone, ought not to have let thee go from us. 6 And Tobias said to her: Hold thy peace, and be not troubled, our son is safe: that man with whom we sent him is very trusty. 7 But she could by no means be comforted, but daily running out looked round about, and went into all the ways by which there seemed any hope he might return, that she might if possible see him coming afar off.

Finally, just as the sun was about to set, she came to alittle house.

indeed she is not dead at all, at all."Silver-Tree went home, and begged the king to put the long-ship inorder, for that she was going to see her dear Gold-Tree, as it was so longsince she saw her.

The house belonged to seven dwarfs.

indeed, nothing could make me laugh, except Gold-Tree were to comealive again.""Well, you'll find her alive down there in the room."When the prince saw Gold-Tree alive her made great rejoicings, and hebegan to kiss her, and kiss her, and kiss her.
