        Now the Wicked Witch of the West had but one eye, yet that was as

        powerful as a telescope, and could see everywhere. So, as she sat in the

        door of her castle, she happened to look around and saw Dorothy lying

        asleep, with her friends all about her. They were a long distance off,

        but the Wicked Witch was angry to find them in her country; so she blew

        upon a silver whistle that hung around her neck.

        At once there came running to her from all directions a pack of great

        wolves. They had long legs and fierce eyes and sharp teeth.

        "Go to those people," said the Witch, "and tear them to pieces."

        "Are you not going to make them your slaves?" asked the leader of the

        wolves.

        "No," she answered, "one is of tin, and one of straw; one is a girl and

        another a Lion. None of them is fit to work, so you may tear them into

        small pieces."

        "Very well," said the wolf, and he dashed away at full speed, followed

        by the others.

        It was lucky the Scarecrow and the Woodman were wide awake and heard the

        wolves coming.

        "This is my fight," said the Woodman, "so get behind me and I will meet

        them as they come."

   当时,西方恶女巫只有一只眼睛,这只眼睛却像一只望远镜那么厉害,什么地方都能看见。此刻,恶女巫坐在城堡门口,四下张望,碰巧看见陶乐熙躺着睡觉,朋友们就在她身旁。尽管还离得很远,但是恶女巫发现他们竟然在自己的地盘上,不禁怒容满面,拿起挂在脖子上的银口哨就吹。

    顿时,一群大灰狼就从四面八方向她跑来。它们四肢很长,眼露凶光,牙齿锋利。

   “去找到那几个人,”女巫说,“把他们撕得粉碎。”

   “不要他们做你的奴隶吗?”头狼问道。

   “不,”女巫答道,“一个是铁皮做的,一个是稻草做的,一个是小女孩,另一个是狮子。都是些没用的;所以,把他们撕成碎片!”

   “遵命,”头狼说罢,飞快地跑开了,群狼跟在它后面。

   幸好稻草人和铁樵夫不睡觉,听见狼群跑来了。

  “这些都是我的菜,”樵夫说,“站在我身后,看我的!”

        He seized his axe, which he had made very sharp, and as the leader of

        the wolves came on the Tin Woodman swung his arm and chopped the wolf's

        head from its body, so that it immediately died. As soon as he could

        raise his axe another wolf came up, and he also fell under the sharp

        edge of the Tin Woodman's weapon. There were forty wolves, and forty

        times a wolf was killed, so that at last they all lay dead in a heap

        before the Woodman.

        Then he put down his axe and sat beside the Scarecrow, who said, "It was

        a good fight, friend."

        They waited until Dorothy awoke the next morning. The little girl was

        quite frightened when she saw the great pile of shaggy wolves, but the

        Tin Woodman told her all. She thanked him for saving them and sat down

        to breakfast, after which they started again upon their journey.

    铁樵夫一把抓起锋利的斧头,等到头狼跑近时,他抡起胳膊,一下子就砍掉了头狼的脑袋,头狼立即倒地而死。他刚刚再次举起斧头,另一匹狼奔来了,又倒在了锋利的斧刃之下。一共有四十匹狼,四十次都有一匹狼被砍杀;最后,狼群的尸体在樵夫面前成了一大堆。

    然后,他放下斧头,坐在稻草人身边。稻草人称赞说:“朋友,这一仗真漂亮!”

    他俩就这样等到天亮。第二天早上,陶乐熙醒来,一见这一大推浑身血迹、毛绒蓬乱的死狼,不觉大惊失色;铁樵夫立即告诉她夜里所发生的一切。她衷心感谢樵夫救了他们,然后坐下吃早饭,饭后又踏上了征程。

        Now this same morning the Wicked Witch came to the door of her castle

        and looked out with her one eye that could see far off. She saw all her

        wolves lying dead, and the strangers still traveling through her

        country. This made her angrier than before, and she blew her silver

        whistle twice.

        Straightway a great flock of wild crows came flying toward her, enough

        to darken the sky.

        And the Wicked Witch said to the King Crow, "Fly at once to the

        strangers; peck out their eyes and tear them to pieces."

    就在这同一个早晨,恶女巫又来到城堡门口,又用那只千里眼打望。她看见了一堆狼尸,看见那几个陌生人居然还在她的地盘上行走,顿时勃然大怒,拿起银哨子,连吹了两次。

   天空中顷刻黑压压一片,一大群野乌鸦向她飞来。

   恶女巫对乌鸦之王下令:

  “立刻飞向那几个陌生人,啄出他们的眼珠,把他们撕成碎片!”
