So people don’t argue against taxes. They just argue about how taxes should be collected. At present the federal government works with a ―Progressive tax‖. The tax covers a percentage of people’s wages. Not everyone pays the same percentage of his salary in taxes. Taxpayers fall into different ―tax brackets‖ depending on their income. Poor people are in a low tax bracket. They pay the smallest percentage of income in taxes. Middle income workers pay a larger percentage than the poor. And the rich fall into the high tax brackets. Few rich people like the progressive tax. The government took a poll. Among other people, the government talked to Ray Mathers and Eve Winick. ―Let’s change to a flat rate tax,‖ says Ray Mathers. ―Everyone should be taxed the same percentage. It’s fair. And it’s easy to figure out.‖ Mathers is president of Trig Computer Company. He makes over $ 80,000 a year. ―I don’t want a flat rate income tax.‖ Says Eve Winick. Winick is a grammar school teacher. Her school is in a poor neighborhood. She makes $ 14,000 a year. ―I don’t care if it’s easier to figure out. What I want to know is, would I pay less tax?‖ Which worries about her students parents. ―Some of them can hardly support themselves. Why should they pay heavier taxes? They’re the people who need government services.‖

Mathers thinks a flat rate would help in the long run. ―The country could lower taxes after a while. See, if I paid fewer taxes. I’d save money. I’d put that money into my business and hire more people. Those people could pay taxes. Everybody would be better off.‖ 40．According to the progressive tax, who should pay the highest percentage of their income in taxes? A．The rich. B．The poor. C．The middle class.

You go to bed in one kind of world and wake up to find yourself in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment (魅 力), then where is it to be found? The quietness of the thing makes it more magical. If all the snow fell at once in one shattering crash, awakening us in the middle of the night, the event would be robbed of its wonder. But it flutters down soundless, hour after hour while we are asleep. Outside the closed curtains of the bedroom a vast transform scene is taking place, just as if a great number of elves (小精灵) were at work , and we turn and yawn and stretch and know nothing about it. And then, what an extraordinary change it is! It is as if the house you are in had dropped down in another continent. Even the inside, which has not been touched, seems different. every room appearing smaller and more comfortable just as if some power were trying to turn in into a woodcutter’s hut or a small log cabin. Outside where the garden was yesterday there is snow a while and shining level, and the village beyond is no longer your own familiar cluster of roofs but a village in an old German fairy tale. Now it has changed again. The snow is falling heavily, in great soft flakes, so that you can hardly see across the shallow valley, and the roofs are thick and the trees all bending, and the weather cock of the village church, still to be seen through the grey loaded air, had be come some creature out of Hans Anderson. From my study, I can see the children flattening their noses against the nursery window and there is running through my head a jangle of rhyme (节奏) I used to repeat when I was a child and flattened my nose against the cold window watching the falling snow: Snow snow faster, Whiter alabaster! Killing geese in Scotland, Sending feathers here!
