Read the text and arrange the paragraphs into the correct order. What book is it from? What was the continuation?
1. Woland enquired Koroviev,': 'do you find the people of Moscow much changed? ' The magician nodded towards the audience, still silent with astonishment at seeing an armchair materialize from nowhere.
2. 'I do, messire,' replied Faggot-Koroviev in a low voice.
'You are right. The Muscovites have changed considerably . . outwardly, I mean ... as, too, has the city itself. . . Not just the clothes, but now they have all these . . . what d'you call 'em: tramways, cars . . .'
'Buses,' prompted Faggot respectfully.
'But naturally I am not so much interested in the buses and telephones and such like . . .'
'Apparatus,' prompted Faggot.
'Precisely, thank you,' drawled the magician in a deep bass, ' as in the much more important question : have the Muscovites changed inwardly? '
'A vital question indeed, sir.'
3. 'My God--it's real money!' came a joyful shout from the gallery.
'I wish you'd play cards with me if you’ve any more packs like that one,' begged a fat man in the middle of the stalls.
'Avec plaisir!' replied Faggot. ' But why should you be the only one?
You shall all take part! Everybody look up, please! One! ' A pistol appeared in his hand. ' Two! ' the pistol was pointed upwards. ' Three! ' There was a flash, a bang, and immediately a cascade of white pieces of paper began to float down from the dome above the auditorium.
4.Turning over and over, some were blown aside and landed in the gallery, some fell towards the orchestra pit or the stage. A few seconds later the shower of money reached the stalls and the audience began catching it.
5. Hundreds of hands were raised as the audience held the notes up to the light from the stage and found that the watermarks were absolutely genuine. Their smell left no doubt: it was the uniquely delicious smell of newly-printed money. First amusement then wonder seized the entire theatre. From all over the house, amid gasps and delighted laughter, came the words '
money, money! ' One man was already crawling under the seats. Several more were standing up on their seats to catch the drifting, twisting banknotes as they fell.
6. From the dress circle a voice was heard shouting: 'Let go! It's mine--I caught it first! ', followed by another voice :
' Stop pushing and grabbing or I'll punch your face in! ' There was a muffled crash. A policeman's helmet appeared in the dress circle and a member of the audience was led away. The excitement rose and might have got out of hand if Faggot had not stopped the rain of money by suddenly blowing into the air.
7. Two young men, grinning purposefully, left their seats and made straight for the bar. A loud buzz filled the theatre : the audience was galvanized with excitement.
8. 'Well, now,' replied the magician reflectively. ' They're people like any others. They're over-fond of money, but then they always were . . . Humankind loves money, no matter if it'smade of leather, paper, bronze or gold. They're thoughtless, of course . . . but then they sometimes feel compassion too .... they're ordinary people, in fact they remind me very much of their predecessors, except that the housing shortage has soured them.. .

What Did he Mean? /poem/
В этом стихотворении можно убрать несколько последних слов их разных строф и дать ребятам самим восстановить их.
Now what shall we talk about, Anthony Gray?”
That’s what I said to my nephew one day.
“What shall we talk about? Something, forsooth,
Crammed full of knowledge and brimming with truth.
Shall we take each in order it comes - Grammar, geography, history, sums!”
But Anthony pouted, and Anthony frowned, He glared at the ceiling, he glared at the ground.
Then murmured, while sulkily twiddling his thumbs:
I don’t care for grammar, geography, sums; History is wretched, I am sick of it too.
I thought you would tell me some tales that were true -
Something about the old battles and kings,
Of sailors and barons and similar things.
You know - there was Arthur, and Alfred the Great -
Do on, Uncle, do! It’s a pity to wait.
There was Edward at Crecy and Percy the Bold;
And Raleigh, who went to Guiana for gold,
And Grenville -
“But Anthony, dearest, said I.
You say you find history awfully dry.”
“So it is”, he declared, from the first to the last;
But I always love hearing old tales of the past.”
THE THROW-AWAY SPIRIT
The throw-away spirit or the spirit of wastefulness has become part of American life and consumption only keeps rising. Besides, according to the economists, we depend so much on this wasting and buying that people will probably be encouraged to consume even more in the years to come if the US economy is to prosper. In other words, these marketing experts say that “the average citizen will have to step up his buying by nearly fifty per cent in the next dozen years, ot the economy will sicken”. This means that the producer of household commodities, i.e. a television manufacturer, will have to find some new means of making further sales since nine out of ten American homes nowdays have one television set. He could, for instance, launch a campaign to induce people to have a second TV-set so sophisticated that people would wish to replace their old set.”
