"Looking-glass upon the wall,
Who is fairest of us all?"
And the glass answered,
"Queen, thou art of beauty rare,
But Snow-white living in the glen
With the seven little men
Is a thousand times more fair."
Then, she was very angry,
for the glass always spoke the truth,
and she knew that the huntsman must have deceived her,
and tha Snow-white must still be living.
And she thought and thought how she could manage
to make an end of her,
for as long as she was not the fairest in the land,
envy left her no rest.
At last, she thought of a plan; she painted her face
and dressed herself like an old pedlar woman,
so that no one would have known her.
In this disguise she went across the seven mountains,
until she came to the house of the seven little dwarfs,
and she knocked at the door and cried,
"Fine wares to sell!" Snow-white peeped out of the window
and cried,"Good-day, good woman, what have you to sell?"
- "Good wares, fine wares," answered she, "laces of all colours;
"and she held up a piece that was woven of variegated silk.
"I need not be afraid of letting in this good woman,"
and she unbarred the door and bought the pretty lace.
"What a figure you are, child! said the old woman,
"come and let me lace you properly for once."
Snow-white, suspecting nothing,
stood up before her, and let her lace her with the new lace;
but the old woman laced so quick and tight
that it took Snow-white's breath away,
and she fell down as dead.
"Now you have done with being the fairest,"
said the old woman as she hastened away...
