    I know a story, now I’ll tell it. There lived an elder brother and a younger brother. The elder brother had a wife. The younger brother had no wife, he lived along, he lived alone in a house. They had names, I’ll say their names now. The elder brother’s name was War-Arrow Spirit, Death-Arrow Spirit. The name of his wife was Little Bitch of the Man with a Hundred Relatives. Somewhere, in some place or other lived an old man with a hundred relatives and she was the daughter of this old man. He was the son-in-law of the old man with the hundred relatives. The name of the younger brother was White Bench of the Sun Back, White Bench of the Moon Back. That’s how he was called. The younger brother lived and in the course of his whole life he did not go outside, he stayed in the house. He did not show himself in broad daylight, outside, he did not go outside. He had nothing to go out for, nothing to do outside. He just lived and lived.

    The elder brother and the younger brother lived on. They had land for living, the land also had a name. The name of the village for living, the town for living was Town the Big-toothed Squirrel cannot Catch on, Town the Sharp-clawed Squirrel cannot Catch on. A town like that. It was a stone town, a sharp-toothed squirrel can’t catch on it, a big-toothed squirrel can’t catch on l can’t catch on it, a big-toothed squirrel can’t catch on it. A town like that. In the lower part of the town a river flowed, the name of the river was Town River with a Ladle of Water from the Kettle, Town River with a Ladle of Gross Water. Such were the names of the lands, the lands for living.

    Now the story wanders to the brother from the brother, the story goes to the elder brother. The elder brother lived together with his wife, they lived for a sort or a long time. War-Arrow Spirit, Death-Arrow Spirit said to his wife: “Wife, look at my head, something really itches, I must have picked up a louse.” “What,” she said, “shall I look for? I’ve looked at your head all my life and have never found even a tiny blood-louse and I won’t find one now. You will say many offensive words, you will say many insulting words.” “Oh, what,” he said, “offensive words, insulting words. Come on, stop it.”

    He begged her for a short time or a long time and the third time she said: “Well, if you really want me to with all your heart, put your head here on my knee.” War-Arrow Spirit, Death-Arrow Spirit put his head on his wife’s knee and his wife ran her fingers through his hair, searched, but found nothing. “There’s nothing,” she said, “as long as we’ve been living, I’ve searched and found nothing, should I find something today? There’s nothing.” “Fine,” he said, “then tie up your belt, throw on your fur coat, tie on a kerchief and go to father, to the old man with the hundred relatives. Ask him for an endless horse hair, for an endless cow hair.” The wife said: “Before, as long as we lived, I looked at your head and didn’t find even one little blood-mouse.

    Just as the master ordered, she went. She put on her girlish fur belt, she put on her girlish sable belt and set off to her father’s. She came to her father’s house and he said: “Girl, what bad thing has happened? In the course of a human life you haven’t come, in the course of your woman’s life you haven’t come to me, what terrible thing has happened that you have come to me?” “Your son-in-law,” she said, “sent me. He said: your father should send me an endless horsehair, an endless cow hair.” “Well, if it’s like that, daughter,” he said, “where he gets to, just such a thing will be.” But this endless horsehair, this endless cow hair was asking for war, for war. This is the name, that’s what people say, people call war an endless horsehair, an endless cow hair. When spring comes, horses and cows start to lose their hair and it does not stop, it falls out. He has many people, that is why he asks.

    “Fine,” he said. “Daughter, have some food, go, and tomorrow you will have what you asked for. “ Fine. She visited for a short or a long time, she set off for home. She came to her husband and her husband asked her: “What will happen?” “Tomorrow,” she said, “father will be here. The endless horse hair, the endless cow hair that you asked for will arrive.” Fine, if that’s the way it is. This story about them comes to an end. They tied their heads and eyes, lay down to sleep, did something, lived on.

    White Bank of the Sun Back, White Bank of the Moon Back did not go outside during the course of his life, but once what noise could be heard? It sounded as if a fat mosquito were humming, as if a fat mosquito were thundering, the earth was trembling so. He looked through the door, through the window. On that side of the river little animals were coming under the little trees, big animals were coming under the big trees. War had come and so many people, fewer trees, but many people. See, the endless horsehair, the endless cow-hair. Fine, what to do? His whole life he had not gone outside, but now he went outside and what did he do? To sit in just one place is bad. He went out. He apparently had grandfathers. Behind the house sleds were standing, as high as a standing man. They were tied down. He thought: “Something is inside.” He went out and started to unravel the sled-ropes, the tied ropes. He pushed the skin sled coverings down and arrows, arrows appeared. They were fastened together in bunches, tied up, chock-full of arrows. Arrows to fight a war with. He rummaged around under the arrows, a bow appeared, a bow made from a mammoth’s horn. Its surface glittered. He picked it up and drew it, he drew it, listened, and felt strength coming to him.

    He put the bow over his shoulder, took the bunches of arrows under his arm and went down from the Town which a Squirrel with Teeth cannot Catch on, the Town which a Squirrel with Claws cannot Catch on to the ice of the Town River with a Ladle of Water from the Kettle, with a Ladle of Gross Water. He put the bow down and lay in waiting behind the bow. Like in an entrenchment. He laid himself down, the bow was of the width and size of a man, his size, the size of his body, the width of his body. The warriors shot arrow at him from there. They struck against his bow and rebounded, they flew up past him. He shot off arrows from where he was. “This my song,” he said, “This my tale will last until the end of the arrow that I shoot off. May it destroy the spring embankments, may it tear at the spring openings.” When he shot off the arrow, an arrow flying like on a path, it cut through the openings between the trees, it laid many people low. For a short time it dug through, for a long time he sent off arrows, shot arrows.

    Suddenly, when there were no more people, three demons appeared, all of them dressed in iron coats. The body of one was visible, on his last finger was his heart. He did not succeed in shooting an arrow, the three iron demons turned now into stones, into stone blocks. He picked up the arrow and went there, threw the arrow on the ground and the stone block split in two. Three iron demons in their iron coats, three demons jumped out. They tied the legs and arms of White Bank of the Sun Back, White Bank of the Moon Back, picked him up and carried him off alive. They did not kill him, they carried him off alive, who knows where they took him. He saw right away that a clearing was visible and in the middle of the clearing a house was standing, could be seen. He thought: “This must be the house of these demons. They’re taking me there and will kill me there.” Oh, he thought of his older brother. He remembered his brother. “For what,” he said, “did they call my brother ‘War-Arrow Spirit, Death-Arrow Spirit. It doesn’t look like he’ll be coming to help me.”

    Oh, his brother heard these words and jumped up from his bed. “Little brother,” he said, “has gotten into big trouble, has gotten into big trouble. He’s thinking of me, I can hear it He jumped up, got dressed, went out, ran to the clearing. He saw the demons dragging his brother. He got in the house before the demons. He entered the house, up above the doors there was a shelf for putting firewood and in the far corner of the house stood a shaman’s knife, the blade glittered. The blade was three spans wide. He took it and sat up on the shelf where the firewood was put. They brought his brother, opened the door and threw him in with bound arms and legs. He rolled to the far corner of the house. After that the first demon came in. The one on top struck him, the second entered - he struck him, the third entered–he struck him. He killed them all. He destroyed them.

    Fine. He did not let his brother go, he himself did not go outside, he just sat. He sat for twenty-four hours, the next day noon arrived. When it came he looked out the window, it was a bright day. Outside some sort of noise could be heard. He went out with the shaman’s knife. War had arrived, who could see whether many or few, few or many. Small animals went under the small trees, large animals went under the large trees, see, the endless horse-hair, the endless cow-hair. He did not let his brother go–he was tied up in the house and lay there. He started to kill with this dagger. When he turned one direction, he hewed, as if he were cutting grass, when he turned the other direction, he hewed as if he were cutting branches for carving. He hacked away for a short time, for a long time, the people were consumed. The warriors were gone. After the people were gotten rid of, his father-in-law, the old man with a hundred relatives, came running. He came there and the other said: “I’ll hack you to death.” “Well,” he said, “why should you hack me to death. Why did you send my daughter? What you asked for doesn’t exist. You asked, if you hadn’t asked, when would I have sent it? You asked and that’s why I sent it.” “And I,” he said, “asked for only so much. A bit less would not have been possible?” “Well,” he said, “why less? You did ask after all, I had to send to satisfy you.”

    Fine. “Please,” said the father-in-law, the old man with a hundred relatives, “don’t kill me. Tomorrow I will send my younger daughter to your brother with a horse caravan, with a cow caravan. Let them live together as man and wife. You will be two sons-in-law for me, you will be the elder, he will be the younger son-in-law.” “If you send her, then you’ll send her.” The father-in-law went home to his own land, the old man with the hundred relatives. The other went home, freed his brother, undid his arms and legs. They went back to their own land, to the town where they lived.

    They set off for where they lived before, to their house, to their place. The next day came and White Bank of the Sun Before war had come, but this time when it came it was bigger. He became very frightened, but what should he do? Like the day before, he went outside, took a bow, took arrows, went and again started to kill. He fought for a short or a long time. He looked at his fingers and shot until the bow-string of the bow, the plumage of the arrow flayed the skin on his fingers, until holes appeared. Flesh became visible. He tore for a short or a long time, when the people were or a long time, when the people were finished off, once again three iron demons appeared, three demons in iron coats.

    They were wearing shirts of mail. Iron arrows could not penetrate, could not cut these clothes. “This my song, this my tale,” he said, “will reach an end with the arrows I shoot.” One man’s flesh could be seen on his neck bone. He knew that the heart was where it is with all people. He did not succeed in shooting the arrow, they turned once again into stone blocks. He went up and struck the stone block with an arrow and it split in two. Then three iron demons, three demons in iron coats leapt out. They leapt out and grabbed and tied his arms and legs. They dragged him off again alive. They carried him off. Off to yesterday’s clearing, off there again, the same clearing appeared. He had the same thoughts as yesterday about his brother. He said: “Why,” he said, “does he have such a name, War-Arrow Spirit, Death-Arrow Spirit. It doesn’t look like he’ll come to help me.” That is how he started to think.

    At the same time his brother at home woke up and said: “My brother has gotten into trouble, he has gotten into big trouble. I can hear him thinking of me.” He got up, got dressed, put on his clothes, went out. He set off again to the demons’ house, again they were carrying his brother. He got there ahead of them again. He got there and looked around like the day before. In the demons’ house, in the far corner a shaman’s knife was standing, its blade four spans wide, glittering. A dagger like that. He took it, above the door opposite a shaman’s knife was standing, its blade four spans wide, glittering. A dagger like that. He took it, above the door opposite the entrance was a shelf for drying firewood. He crawled up on this shelf. They brought his brother and flung him into the house like the day before. He rolled across into the back corner of the house. Afterwards, the first demon entered–he struck him, the second entered–he struck him, the third entered–again all were finished off. He did not let his brother go, he lay there all tied up. He sat there all night, he sat there for twenty-four hours. The next day he could hear a harnessed horse caravan, a cow caravan arrive, war again. The earth trembled, the earth resounded. He went out, little animals went under the little trees, big animals went under the big trees. Then he became angry. He went and turning one way hewed with the dagger, turning the other way he cut with the dagger. As if he were cutting hay, as if he were cutting branches for whittling.

    He hewed for a short or a long time, his father-in-law, the old man with a hundred relatives came running up. “Oh,” he said, “this time I won’t let you off alive.” “But why,” said the old father-in-law, “should you touch me? What you requested does not exist. Why should you be offended, why be angry? If you hadn’t asked me, I could not have sent so much. Would I have sent so much, would I have done it? Please, don’t touch me. Tomorrow I will prepare my younger daughter with a horse caravan, with a cow caravan and will bring them here. I will bring them here to you. I will prepare them for your brother.” He believed him again. He believed him and when his father-in-law, the old man with a hundred relatives left, he went into the house and released his brother. He untied his arms and legs. They talked with each other again and went home. They set off for the town where they lived.

    They set off again, they passed the night. Just like the day before war came, even bigger. It came even bigger, the earth trembled, the earth resounded. From the window White Bank of the Sun Back, White Bank of the Moon Back saw it. What had been war yesterday was now came even bigger, like a fat mosquito. It made noise, it thundered. He went out, took the same bow and arrows, and set off again.

    He came to the river ice and lay down behind the bow. Arrows shot off from there rebounded off his bow, flew off, they did not pierce the mammoth bow, did not shatter it, they rebounded off the bow. Arrows flew over him with a whistle. But he cut spring openings in the warriors with the arrows he shot. He destroyed them like autumn banks, like water beating on the embankment, that is how they fall. Afterwards, when they were finished off, three iron demons appeared again. He did not have time to shoot an arrow, they turned into stones. What should he do? He went up again, struck the stone block with the thick end of the arrow and the stone block split in two.

    It split in two and the three demons in iron coats leapt out from it. Once again they bound the lad, the poor devil, again they tied him up, again they carried him off. They dragged him for a short or a long time and came out into the clearing. In the middle of the clearing stood a house. He thought: “They’re taking me there. They’ll destroy me there. My brother has a name, but he won’t likely come to help me. Why was he given the name, War-Arrow Spirit, Death-Arrow Spirit? I don’t think he’ll help me.” At the same time his brother woke up at home and jumped up. “My brother,” he said, “has gotten into big trouble, has gotten into great misfortune. He’s thinking of me.” He got dressed, leapt out, and set off for there. He looked: his brother was being dragged. His arms and legs were bound. He succeeded in getting there again. A shaman’s knife was standing in the far corner of the house against the wall. Its blade was seven spans wide. It glittered, its blade was made of non-rusting iron. He grabbed this dagger and crawled onto the firewood shelf. He crawled up. They threw his brother into the house.

    After flinging the brother in, the demons fell into the house. One came in - he hewed and cut him in two. The second one came in–he hewed and chopped him in two. He destroyed them all, nothing remained at all. They spent the night there again. The next day came and the earth again started to resound, started to tremble. There is no sound of a horse caravan, there is no sound of a cow caravan. War came again. He went out again. Now with the knife of seven span’s width, of seven span’s length hewed for a short or a long time, he cut for a short or a long time. Suddenly, when the warriors were finished off, the father-in-law, the old man with a hundred relatives came running up. This time he caught him. He said: “I’ll slit your throat. This is the third time you have betrayed us.” “Please, little son-in-law,” he said, “spend the night here until tomorrow, don’t go home. I’ll harness up the horse caravan, I’ll harness up the cow caravan and will bring my younger daughter and everything here. Here we will prepare her for your brother. Don’t go home, spend the night here.” He released him again, he felt pity again. When somebody promises you something, you have to think.

    He went into the house and freed his brother, untied his arms and legs. Now he said: “We won’t go home. Tomorrow the old man with a hundred relatives, my father-in-law, will bring his younger daughter here for you, we’ll make her your person, together with a horse caravan, a cow caravan he will bring her here. Now, we won’t go home, we’ll spend the night here, we’ll wait here. When he comes, then we can leave.” They spent the night, the next day dawned, towards noon a noise was heard, as if small bells were ringing. After a short time a horse caravan, a cow caravan arrived. They set the younger daughter of the old man with a hundred relatives on the sled and brought her there. They set off together with War-Arrow Spirit, Death-Arrow Spirit, started to talk, and the father-in-law said: “I brought someone, I brought someone, I brought my daughter. Where you have a place to live, prepare it where you will be the masters.”

    War-Arrow Spirit, Death-Arrow Spirit took these caravans and set off upstream from the City on which a Squirrel with Teeth cannot Catch, on which a Squirrel with Claws cannot Catch. They went for a short time, for a long time, they found a good cape for hunting, they found a good cape to build a settlement, they stayed. They stayed an looked: the bride, the younger daughter of the old man with a hundred relatives had a golden ring on her middle finger, she had a ring. He asked her for it, she gave it to him. He put it inside his mouth and chewed it this way and chewed it that way. He chewed for a short or a long time and spat it out on his legs, on the tip of his feet. With the tip of his foot he flung it up. It flew for a long or a short time, it dropped. A beautiful town appeared, a beautiful settlement appeared and people doing what had to be done. People in the town. And in the middle of the city there stood a beautiful house, a house with a golden porch, with a golden roof. They are the people for living there as the owners, it’s them.

War-Arrow Spirit, Death-Arrow Spirit called a gathering, a thought had come to him. “We have stopped playing wedding, everyone has a wife and we three masters are now married, we finished off so many warriors, we mustn’t live together. That is why I asked for the endless horse-hair, the endless cow-hair.” War-Arrow f so many warriors, we mustn’t live together. That is why I asked for the endless horse-hair, the endless cow-hair.” War-Arrow Spirit, Death-Arrow Spirit said: “That’s why I requested it. If we hadn’t finished this, if we hadn’t killed. Do the Khanty not live in a time sent by God? In the time of life of the Khanty, given by God. This endless horse hair, this endless cow hair were it not to end in winter, were it not to end in summer, we would fight summer, we would fight winter. We would fight the whole life.

    The father-in-law said: “That is why I sent it. Now we have stopped. The Khanty will live in the time sent by God, in the time of life for the Khanty, given by God. There will be no such war. We have killed many, have done it.” War-Arrow Spirit, Death-Arrow Spirit said: “We will now scatter to the sides, we three men will live in three corners of the earth. May the Khantys, as long as time is given to the Khanty, as long as life is given to the Khanty, think of us, may they remember us. If someone remembers us, let him put out funeral cups for us. If someone remembers let him remember us with a funeral sacrifice. Father-in-law, you will live thus, your lot will be thus. You will go to the east, to the sea. You have many related fish. You have many related fish, you will be the master. Seven sheds with gold and silver money, when the thought occurs to you, lake fish, fish swimming against the stream, if someone pleases you, give to him, send to him. Give much to the man, to whom much must be given. Give little to the man, to whom little must be given, you are the master.”

    The younger brother said: “War-Arrow Spirit, when the Khanty will live the time provided by God, let them remember us. His name shall be ‘Man of the End of the Ob’. The End of the Ob will preserve the land. When spring comes, for all human life, as long as people live, let him send many birds in spring, geese, all sort of birds. He is the master, in his hands will be all, he will be the master. See, the Khanty will say: “Let him be called the End of the Ob, let him be called so.” And I will live in this my Town on Which a Squirrel with Teeth cannot Catch, on Which a Squirrel with Claws cannot Catch. I will live here and will turn in summer and winter seven skies, which the master turns, long skies which the master turns. Let me become a spirit, I will be a spirit.” Through my tale, through my song they still live happily.
