Once there lived a man who was very fond of gold. He used to say: "While I have my gold, I am the happiest
man in the world." And so all his life he saved money. One day he was travelling in the desert of North Africa.
He lost his way. He had no food or water. He was almost dying of hunger. He was so weak that he could not
walk, he could only crawl. The heat was terrible. There were only stones and sand around. Just then he saw a
bag lying on the sand. He hoped that he would find food in it and water, too. He crawled up to the bag and
opened it. He saw that the bag was full of gold. What is the use of gold to a hungry man in a desert? He left the
bag on the hot sand, crying bitterly: "I am the most unhappy man in the world."

was on the forty-fifth floor. In the evening the friends went to the theatre and came back to the hotel very late.
"I am very sorry," said the clerk of the hotel, "but the lifts do not work tonight. If you don't want to walk up to
your room, we shall make beds for you in the hall." "No, no," said one of the friends, "no, thank you. We don't
want to sleep in the hall. We shall walk up to our room." Then he turned to his friends and said: "It is not easy
to walk up to the forty-fifth floor, but we shall make it easier. On the way to the room I shall tell you some
jokes; then you, Andy, will sing us some songs; then you, Peter, will tell us some interesting stories." So they
began walking up to their room. Tom told them many jokes; Andy sang some songs. At last they came to the
thirty-sixth floor. They were tired and decided to have a rest. "Well," said Tom, "now it is your turn, Peter. After
all the jokes, I would like to hear a sad story. Tell us a long and interesting story with a sad end." "The story
which I am going to tell you," said Peter "is sad enough. We left the key to our room in the hall."
Swift, a famous English writer, was travelling one day on horseback with his servant. The weather was bad, it
was raining, and the roads were muddy. In the evening the two men came to an inn. Before going to bed Swift
told his servant to clean his boots. But the servant was lazy and did not do it. In the morning Swift asked the
servant why he had not cleaned the boots. "What's the use cleaning the boots now?" said the servant. "The roads
are muddy, and the boots will soon be dirty again." "All right," said the writer. "Let's go. We must continue the
journey." "But I haven't had breakfast," said the displeased servant. "Well, what's the use giving you breakfast
now?" said Swift: "You will soon be hungry again."
In a small town in the East there was once a man who had a parrot. The parrot was taught to say the words:
"There is no doubt about it." It used to repeat these words all day long. Every time it was asked a question, it
gave the same answer. "There is no doubt about it." One day the man decided to sell the bird; so he put the parrot
into the cage and went to the market with it. "Twenty pounds for a very clever parrot!" he cried. A man who
was passing by heard this and turned to the parrot. "Are you worth twenty pounds?" he asked. "There is no
doubt about it!" answered the parrot. "What a clever parrot!" said the man and bought the bird. He took the parrot
home and invited his friends to look at the clever bird. The friends came and looked at the parrot and talked
to it. Now you must know that the man was not rich. In fact, he was often short of money. So a week or two
later, sitting in an armchair and looking at the parrot, he said: "What a fool I was to throw away such a lot of
money!" "There is no doubt about it!" cried the parrot» And this time the bird was right.
A train stopped at a little station. A passenger looked out of the window of a train carriage and saw a woman
selling cakes. The man had not had breakfast in the morning. He was hungry and wanted to buy a cake. The
woman was standing rather far from the carriage. The man did not want to go and buy a cake himself because
he was afraid to miss the train. He saw a boy who was walking along the platform near the carriage. He called
the boy and asked him: "How much does a cake cost?" "Three pence, sir," answered the boy. The man gave him
a sixpence and said: "Bring me a cake, and with the other three pence buy a cake for yourself." The boy took the
money and went to the woman. A few minutes later the boy returned. He was eating a cake. He gave the man
three pence change and said: "The woman had only one cake, sir."
A crow once said to her children: "It's high time for you to look for food." With these words she turned them
out of the nest and took them to the field. But the crow's children did not like the idea. "We'd rather go back to
the nest," they cried. "It's so nice when you bring food to us!" "Indeed!" said their mother. "You are big enough
to feed yourselves. My mother turned me out of the nest when I was much younger, and I had to take care of
myself." "But people will kill us with their guns," said the young crows. "No fear of that," answered their
mother. "Before people shoot, they take aim, and that takes time. When you see a man raising a gun to his face,
you must just fly away." "That's a simple thing to do," said the children, "but supposing a man or a boy wants to
throw a stone at us: in such a case he won't have to take aim." "Well, then he will have to bend down to pick up
a stone," said the crow. "But what if he carries a stone in his hand ready?" "Why, if you are clever enough to
think of that," said the mother, "you are clever enough to take care of yourselves." And she flew away leaving
the young crows in the field.
Russia is such a large country that when it is night in one part of the country, it is day in another part, when it is
winter in one part of the country; it is already summer in another. Imagine it is the beginning of May now. It is
spring in St. Petersburg. The weather is fine. It is still cool at night, but it is quite warm in the afternoon. It
sometimes rains, but the rain is warm, too. The ground is covered with soft green grass, and the trees are covered
with green leaves. But while it is spring in St. Petersburg, it is still winter in the north of our country at the
beginning of May. Here it is cold and sometimes frosty, the rivers and seas are covered with ice. The ice does
not melt in some places even in summer. The ground is covered with deep snow. In the south of our country the
weather is quite different. It is already summer in the Caucasus and in the Crimea. It is much warmer than in St.
Petersburg. It is sometimes even hot. The sky is usually cloudless and it seldom rains here, People wear summer

Once there lived a king. His name was Midas. He had a little daughter. They lived in a beautiful palace with a
wonderful garden around it. Now the king was very fond of gold. He loved gold more than anything else in the
world. One day, when the king was looking at his gold, a young man appeared before him. "You are a very rich
man, Midas," said the young man. "Yes," said the king, "but I would like to be richer. I would like to have a
golden touch. I want everything that I touch to turn into gold." The young man was a magician, and he gave the
king the golden touch which he wanted to have. The king was very happy. He touched a table, and the table became
gold. He went into the garden. There were beautiful roses in the garden. He touched the roses, and they
also became gold. The king's daughter, who loved the roses very much, saw it and began to cry. "Don't cry, dear
daughter", said the king and touched his daughter's head. The next moment the girl turned into a beautiful gold
A group of farmers were sitting in a village house, and among other things they began talking about echoes.
One of the farmers said that there was a wonderful echo in the field near his farm where there was a large group
of trees. All the other farmers said that they would like to hear the echo, and the farmer invited them to come
the next afternoon. But the fact was that the farmer did not really have the echo he had told the other farmers
about. So when he came home, he sent for the son of the cook and told him to go to the field, hide himself
among the trees and imitate everything that was said. The next day the other farmers came, and the farmer took
them to the field to listen to the wonderful echo. When they were in the field, he shouted at the top of his voice:
"Are you there?" The answer came back: "Yes, I've been here for two hours!"
It was a nice summer day. The weather was fine, the sun was shining in the blue sky, the air was fragrant with
the smell of grass and flowers. A dog which was running about the streets of a little town saw a butcher's stall
with a lot of meat. The dog cautiously approached the stall and, when the butcher turned away to talk to a
woman, quickly seized a big piece of meat and ran away with it. On the way home the dog had to cross a
stream by a narrow bridge. As he was crossing, he looked down into the stream and saw his reflection in the
water. He thought it was another dog with another piece of meat. He snapped at the reflection and dropped his
own piece of meat. That's how the dog was punished for greediness.

Last Tuesday evening, when the whole family was at home, a burglar came into the house and stole $ 500!
When we discovered the theft, we called the police. Because his shoes were wet and dirty, the detective could
follow his footprints. Here is what the burglar did. He came in the front door. It was locked, so he broke the
lock. Dad was reading a newspaper in the study near the front door. He was facing the big window, so he didn't
see the man, and because he was also listening to loud music, he didn't hear him. It was raining and there was
thunder, so there was a lot of noise outside, too. The burglar crossed the hall to the kitchen. Mum was making a
pot of tea, so he didn't go into the kitchen. The man went back across the hall and looked into the dining room.
No one was in there. He looked through all the drawers and found $ 300. But this wasn't enough. He came out
of the dining room and went upstairs. Tom was doing his homework in his bedroom and listening to his Walkman.
The burglar went past Tom's room. Sally was taking a shower and singing at the top of her lungs. He went
into the TV room. He opened everything but found nothing. Then he left the TV room, went back down the
stairs and into the kitchen. Mum was sitting in the living room with Dad. The burglar was very quiet! He found
$200 in an old teapot on the top shelf of the left kitchen cupboard. Then the man went out through the French
window in the dining room. It wasn't locked, so it was easy to get out. The police couldn't believe it! We never
heard the burglar!

Once a Frenchman was travelling in Sweden. He stopped at a hotel in a little Swedish town. It was evening, the
man was tired, so he went to bed at once. In the morning he had breakfast in the hotel restaurant. After breakfast
he went for a walk. He walked along the streets of the town, visited a museum and some shops. Presently he
felt hungry and dropped into a cafe for lunch. He sat down at a table, called a waiter and ordered mushrooms.
But the Frenchman did not know Swedish and the waiter did not know French. Nobody in the cafe could speak
French. Then the Frenchman took a piece of paper and a pencil and drew the picture of a mushroom. The waiter
looked at the picture and left the room at once. Five minutes later he returned with an umbrella.
A guide was once showing a group of rich American tourists the places of interest in a little town in the south of
Italy. He took the tourists from place to place, but as the town was small, after a while the guide could not think
of anything that might be of interest to the Americans. "Tell us something unusual about the weather or the climate
of this place," said an American lady to the guide. "What can I tell her about our climate?" thought the
guide. Then he had an idea. "Well," he said, ""there is one unusual thing about our climate. One can easily notice
that the wind here always blows from the west." "Really?" said the lady in a surprised tone: "What an interesting
thing!" But another tourist said: "You must be wrong. Look! The wind is blowing from the east now." At
the first moment the guide did not know what to say. But he was a clever man and soon found a way out. "Oh,"
he said, "Is that so? Well, then it must be the west wind coming back."
The English king Richard the Lion Heart was a tall, strong man. He was very proud of his strength and liked to
show people how strong he was. Once, as he was riding on horseback in the countryside, his horse lost a shoe.
Luckily he was not far from a village and soon he found a blacksmith. "Give me a good horseshoe," he said to
the man. The blacksmith gave the king a horseshoe. Richard took it in his hand and broke it in two. "This
horseshoe is no good," he said, "give me a better one." The blacksmith did not say a word. He gave the king
another horseshoe, but Richard broke it, too. The blacksmith gave him a third shoe. This time Richard was satisfied
and ordered the blacksmith to shoe his horse. When the work was done, Richard offered the man a coin.
The blacksmith took the coin between his fingers and broke it in two. Now it was Richard's turn to be surprised.
He took a larger coin out of his pocket and handed it to the blacksmith. The man broke it, too, saying: "This
coin is no good, give me a better one". Richard smiled and gave the man a gold coin.
In the fifteenth century people knew only three continents: Europe, Asia and Africa. They knew nothing about
such a big continent as America, The man who discovered America was born in 1451 in Italy. His name was
Christopher Columbus. He became a sailor at an early age. Knowing that the Earth was round, he decided to
reach India sailing to the west. He tried to arrange an expedition, but did not have money, and nobody wanted to
help him. At last the king of Spain gave him money for the expedition. He set sail in 1492. The voyage was very
dangerous and difficult. On the 12th of October his ship reached land. When they landed, they saw strange trees
and flowers. Men and women with olive-coloured skins gathered around the sailors and looked at them with
great surprise. Columbus was sure that he had discovered a new way to India. Some time later another sailor
reached America. The name of the sailor was Amerigo Vespucci. He understood that it was a new continent.

Mr. Jones was a teacher of physics at school. He was fond of the experimental method in physics and often told
his pupils to use this method. One day Mr. Jones came to school on a new bicycle. The bicycle had a pair of
pneumatic tyres, which had just been invented, and none of the pupils had ever seen them. During a lesson the
teacher took the pupils into the school yard and showed them the new invention. "Now, children," he said,
"who can tell me what is inside this tyre that makes it so hard and yet so elastic?" The boys touched the tyres.
"Cotton wool," said one of them. "Steel springs," said another. "Oh no," said the teacher, "you are wrong."
Suddenly a little boy, who was standing beside the bicycle, cried out, looking very happy: "I know what it is!
There's wind inside." Mr. Jones smiled and said: "You are right: there's air inside. But how did you find it out?"
"Well, I used the experimental method," said the boy: "I stuck a nail into the tyre, and some wind came out of
it". For the first time in his life Mr. Jones did not like the use of the experimental method.
