Russian story of St George and the dragon

The inhabitants of the pagan city of Troy worshipped nothing but gold and silver, we are told, so the Lord made the water courses run molten gold instead of water, with the result that these two products were soon transposed in value. After a time He took pity on the misery and thirst of the people, and made a deep lake in front of their town; but as a punishment he placed there a monster dragon, who demanded from the people a maiden every day in exchange for water. Soon the supply of the former ran short, and all the maids in the place were sacrificed to the monster, except the King’s daughter. When her turn came to follow her sisters, and she was placed by the lake side, the dragon came up to devour her, as he had done her predecessors; but St George descended from heaven on a milk-white horse, and after the exciting conflict depicted in the eikon slew the dragon.

The Evening Post, Friday 5 October 1900.
