A man went to an insurance office to have his life insured. * The manager of the office asked him how old his parents were when they died. "Mother had a bad heart and died at the age of thirty. Father died of tuberculosis when he was thirty-five."

"I am sorry," said the manager, "we cannot insure your life as your parents were not healthy."

As the man was leaving the office, depressed, he met a clerk who had overheard the conversation. "You must not be so frank and tell the truth," said the clerk, "no office will insure you if you speak like that. Use your imagination a little."

The man went to another office and was shown 2 into the mana­ger's room. "Well, young man, how old were your parents when they died?" "Mother was ninety three, and she died from a fall off her bicycle. Father was ninety eight and he died while he was playing football."

The famous sculptor Michaelangelo lived in Florence. He was well known all over Italy s for his beautiful work and the Governor of Florence made up his mind to ask the famous sculptor to make a statue out of a large piece of marble. A sculptor had tried to do this before him, but had only spoiled the marble. Mi­chaelangelo worked for two years, and at last he completed the beautiful statue which he called David. The day the statue was ready a large crowd of people gathered in the square. The Governor of Florence came too. He stood for a long time looking at the statue.

Then he said that he didn't like it, as David's nose was too long.

Michaelangelo made up his mind to please the governor and not to spoil the statue. He went up to the statue with a handful of marble dust. He pretended to be changing the shape of the nose and at the same time dropped some of the marble dust,which he had taken with him. The governor thought that this was marble dust from the nose of the statue. When Michaelangelo had finished, the governor said: "That's excellent!

Once upon a time there lived a king whose name was Midas. He was very fond of gold, he loved it better than anything else in the world, except his daughter. Midas spent the days counting the pieces of gold he. had collected. Once, when he was engaged in counting his money, a stranger entered the room and said: "Midas, you are the richest man in the world. You have everything you can wish for. But are you really happy?" "No, I am not," answered Midas, "I shall never be happy until everything that I touch be­comes gold."

"You shall have what you wish!" exclaimed the stranger.

The next morning Midas woke up when the sun was rising. While he was dressing, he noticed that his clothes turned into gold. This made him very happy. He went into the garden and everything that he touched, the trees and the flowers, turned into gold. Soon he sat down to breakfast; his daughter was sitting beside him. Midas lifted his cup of coffee to his mouth, but the coffee became hard and yellow. This frightened him.

"What is the matter with you, Father?" asked his daughter, running up to him and taking his hand, but she also turned into gold. "What have I done?" cried Midas. "It was madness to want more riches. Now I have lost my daughter."Suddenly he heard the voice of the stranger: "Midas, which would you like to have now: “your gold or your daughter?"
