Warm-up Reading

   Mark Giogio figured a 50-foot fall was worth 20 dollars. Giogio, 47, was counting his money while walking accross a bridge when a $20 blew out of his hand and flew over the vail....

   He followed.And plummeted 50 feet into the river.
          Then he swam about 100 yards to fish the bill from the water.
         "I got my money back, hell yeah."Giogio told the Sarasota Herald- Tribune."20 bucks is a lot of money when you're broke.

     He was fished from the water by a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officer.Giogio, who said he was already suffering from a broken collar-bone, refused treatment for cuts and scrapes he sufferd in the fall.

 A study of scarlet

        "The man was seen," continued Lestrade." A milk boy ,passing on his way to the dairy, happened to walk down the lane which leads from the mews  at the back of the hotel.He noticed that a ladder, which usually lay there, was raised against the window of the second floor.

      After passing , he looked back and saw a man descend the ladder. He came down quietly  and openly that the boy imagined him to be some carpenter  or joiner at work in the hotel. He took no particular notice of him, beyond thinking in his own mind thatit was early for him to be at work. 

      He has an impression that the man was tall, has a reddish face,and was dressed in a long,brownish coat.He must have stayed in the room some little time after muder, for we found blood-stained water in the basin, where he had washed his hands, and marks on the sheets where he had deliberately wiped his knife."

练习:

昨晚那个路过这座桥的老人发现了远处公寓的二楼着火了...

每次路过学校边的那家小店,都能看见那个老板从火车里搬水果,然后一箱一箱放在路边...
我对普吉岛唯一的印象就是海滩上细密的沙子,那种海天相连的湛蓝,还有那五彩斑斓的木质帆船..
