WHY THE SKY IS HIGH
A long time ago, the sky was close to
the earth. When you stood up and stretched
your arms, you could touch it.
One day, a farmer brought some
coconuts for his wife. His wife wanted to
drink the juice inside. She knocked on of the
coconuts against a rock to break open the
shell Thats not the way to do it, her
husband said. You should cut it open with a
knife
He gave her his bolo or jungle-knife
His wife raised the knife to cut the coconut
shell. crack !. As she lifted the knife about
her head it split open the sky and there was
heavy rain.
The woman told the sky, Will you
please go a little higher? I cant raise my
knife high enough to cut this coconut shell
She raised the knife over her shoulder
the second time. Once again, it hit the sky
and there was thunder and lightening
You are still too low, the woman
said to the sky. Please go higher.
She raised the bolo a third time. It still
cracked the sky. There was a typhoon, and
the womans house was almost blown away
by the fierce wind.
What are you doing? cried her
husband, Cant you even try to open a
coconut shell without causing a typhoon?
Its not me, his wife answered. Its
the sky which is too low. I need more room
to use the knife.
Finally, the woman became very angry. She
looked up and shouted at sky. Youd better
do as I told. Otherwise I shall cut you to
pieces.
The clouds rose and rose and the sky
went up higher and higher. Thats why it is
now so high.

TEXT 3
Della and Jim Young, newly married,
were poor. Jims wage was enough to rent
only a very small apartment. But there were
two things of which each was extremely
proud. Della had the longest and most
beautiful hair in all New York, thought Jim, as
he watched her combing it; and Jim
possessed a magnificent gold pocket watch,
given by his father.
Christmas was drawing near, and Jim
and Della began to think what present they
could afford to give each other. Della always
noticed sadly, when Jim looked at his watch
(which he did whenever he had an excuse
to), that it was fixed to the button-hole of his
coat by common old leather strap. He really
needed a gold chain. And Jim often thought,
as he looked at Della doing her long hair,
how well it would looked if only he could buy
her jeweled comb to hold it in place. But a
gold watch-chain or jeweled hair-comb
would have cost far more money than either
of them possessed.

Now it was Christmas Eve. With


tearful eyes Della had counted the money
she had saved for Jims Christmas present
for the tenth time 87 cents. If only I
knew ... she thought. Then suddenly she
had a wonderful idea. She hurriedly putting
on her old hat and coat, she ran down the
street to the shop with the notice Hair
bought. She entered and an hour later
walked out of the shop richer by 15 dollars,
but without her chair! On the way home she
stopped at every watchmakers shop until at
last she found exactly the right chain to suit
Jims watch.
Returning home, with one dollar and
87 cents left in her pocket, she had just
enough time before Jim arrived home from
work to wrap the precious gift. She also
curled her remaining hair. When Jim saw it,
he was speechless. Oh Jim, dont look at
me like that. It will grow again, Della cried.
And I had to do it. Here. She gave the
parcel to Jim, you see, I had to sell my hair
to get money for your present! Merry
Christmas, dear.
When Jim opened it, he collapsed on a
chair. I think wed better put our presents
away for a while, he said gently at last,
You see, Ive sold my watch to but this
comb for your hair. He gave the package to
Della.
Nodding while tears rose in her eyes
too, Della gave Jim a brave smile and said,
Our gifts are the best presents in the world,
