I often dreamed about Pisa when I was a boy. I read about the famous building called the Leaning Tower of Pisa. But when I read the word Pisa, I was thinking of pizza. I thought this tower was a place to buy pizza. It must be the best place to buy pizza in the world. Many years later, I finally saw the Leaning Tower. I knew then that is was in Pisa and no Pizza. But there was still something special about it
for me. The tower got its name because it really does lean to one side. Some people want to try to fix it. They are afraid it may fall over. I don?t think it?s a good idea to try to fix it. The tower probably will not fall over, for it is 600 years old. If you ask me, I like what it looks like. To me it is a very human kind of leaning. Nothing is perfect, it seems to say. And who cares? Why do people want things to be perfect? Imperfect things may be more interesting. Why is the tower in Pisa so famous. People come from all over the world to see it.

They had a big balloon and they were ready for a long way. Soon they heard the sea. They were carrying the usual rope （绳子） ,and it was hanging down from the basket of the balloon. At the end of the rope they had tied a metal box. This could hold water, or it could be empty. So they were able to change its weight（重量）.It was for use over the sea. They were also carrying some bags of sand.
After the sun rose, the balloon went higher. It went up to 3,000 metres, and the air was very cold. The water in the balloon became ice. Snow fell past the men's basket, and they could see more snow on the ground. The men tried to throw out some more sand; but it was hard. They tried to break the icy sand with their knives, but it was not easy. The work was slow and they were still falling, so they had to drop some whole bags of sand. One of them fell on an icy lake and made a black hole in the ice. At last they pulled the box into the basket. It was still snowing; so they climbed to get away from the snow.

The New York police have 170 horses working in certain parts of the city. The horses are expensive to feed, but it is even more expensive to look after them. Because the horses must walk on the streets, they need special horseshoes. In fact , they need more than 8,000 of them each year. Every police horse in New York gets new shoes every month. Keeping these shoes in good repair is the job of six blacksmiths. There are only about thirty-five of these blacksmiths in the whole United States. The cost of shoeing a horse is between twenty dollars and B. on the sea C. on a lake D. in a foreign
thirty-five dollars, and it takes a good blacksmith two or three hours to do
the job. A blacksmith?s job is not an easy one. He must be able to shape a shoe from a piece of metal and then fit it to the horse?s foot. The blacksmith must bend over all the time when he is fitting the shoe and must hold the weight of the horse?s leg while he works. Clearly, a blacksmith must be very strong. But even more important, he must be able to deal with horses---for before the blacksmith can begin his work, he has to get the horse to lift its leg. One of the blacksmiths in New York is James Corbin. He came to the country from Ireland in 1948. He not only makes horseshoes for the police but also works for a group of horse owners near the city. Corbin became interested in blacksmith because his father did it, and, as he puts it, “It?s a good way to make a living.” ( )１.
