A study of scarlet

As he spoke, he whipped a tape measure and a large and round magnifying glass from his pocket.With these two implements, he trotted noiselessly about the room. Sometimes stopping,occasionally kneeling, and once lying flat upon his face. 

So engrossed was he with his occupation that he appeared to have forgotten our presence. for he chatted away to himself under his breath the whole time, keeping up a running fire of exclaimation , groans ,whistles and little cries. 

As I watched him, I irresistibly reminded of a pure-blooded and well-trained Foxhound, as it dashed backward and forward through the covert, whining in its eagerness., until it comes across the lost scent. For 20 minutes or more, he continued his researhes, measuring with the most exact care the distance between marks which were entirely invisible to me.

In one place,he gathered up a little pile of gray dust from the floor, and packed it away in an envelope. Finally he examined with his glass the words upon the wall., going over every letters of it with the most minute exactness. This done, he appeared to be satisfied.


练习:

他在书房里快步来回走着,时而坐下,时而躺在床上。

他如此专注于这篇论文以至于似乎忘记了图书馆的关门时间。
辛普森不由自主地想起了去年的那场车祸。
在街角遇见了多年不见的朋友。

这个作家从口袋里抽出一支笔,仔仔细细得记下了这个报童对他说的一切。做完了记录,作家才离开。
