Recently, there was a fossil exhibition at the museum. Many fish fossils were exhibited. Do you know the existence of one kind of fish that would not expire in the air because it couId expel air from lungs? The fossil showed that it began its expansion of territory millions of years ago. All the fossils were exploited by an expedition. There were many experts who had different expertise in the expedition. So the government had an expectation of good results. The research was important, but the expenditure of time and money was also considerable. For example, it was too much of an expense for them to own three helicopters. The experts found a proper mountain. They explored every part of it. After an experimental explosion, one of the experts exploded the gunpowder, an explosive. The explosion was heard a mile away. Several people were injured.The peace breaker could not provide an explicit explanation. In additions his passport was due to expire in two weeks. So he was expelled from the expedition. In spite of many difficulties, the expedition finished the job well.
The rainy weather extended into October. The river flooded extensive areas. From the mountains, people were able to see the full extent of the flood. To some extent, that was man's fault. Man had logged too many trees. This country exported beef to Europe every year. Since the flood contaminated the beef, it sold the beef to the domestic people, keeping the external world from knowing the truth! A reporter had an extraordinary dream one night. An extinct dinosaur came back to life! The next day, the reporter happened to know this beef event. He raised his eyebrows and then extinguished his cigarette. His forehead was wet with sweat then was dry after exposure to the wind. He maintained a calm exterior, though really he was furious. Soon the reporter exposed the whole event. His political views were rather extreme. He said the government officials were living the extravagant lives while the people were eating the contaminated beef. His speech caught everyone's eye. The newspaper extracted several passages from his speech and printed them on the front page. The consumers were angry. They asked for extra compensation. The government thought the reporter was too extravagant. The police kept an eye on him. They monitored his telephone extension. But the reporter insisted on his fight against the government.

They flattered him about his cooking. Edward would flush with embarrassment. Being shy was the only flaw in his character. As a matter of fact, Edward was very fond of cooking and foodstuff. His bakery was flourishing for four reasons. First, he focused his attention on his work. Second, he made bread with the best flour. Third, he had flexible flesh to work well.

I read a story recently. Benny got a new job. The contract would remain in force for a period of 3 years. And it came into force last month. Because Benny was a foreigner, his colleagues often made a fool of him. For example, smoking was forbidden in the forge, but they put cigarettes into his pocket. Benny always forgave them. One day the boss announced a competition and its format. Benny would be foremost to enter it. Like his forefather, Benny had the ability to foresee the future. It was important for a factory to formulate the production process. Benny suggested that the boss format the production process, and so forth. The boss approved his proposal after Benny formulated it. It was fortunate to work for a wise boss. Benny forged a new set of forks with great skill. Before the formation of a new idea, he would touch his forehead with his forefinger. On the day of evaluation, Benny went forth to show the samples. He forecasted that at least one of his products would pass the exam. His mother had told him his fortune and she said luck was forthcoming. Benny won the first prize of the competition. He was awarded a fortnight's holiday and 100 thousand dollars. Both holiday and fortune were satisfying, but Benny liked the former better. The foregoing story was by an English writer.
Robert's father worked in a freight company. His mother was a housewife. The family never had friction. To afford to send their son to go to college, the couple spent only a fraction of their earnings. When he was only 3 years old, Robert knew 1/2 and 1/4 are fractions. And now Robert was a freshman at a big university. The foundation of the university took place over 100 years ago. It was famous for its ornate fountain and its attractive forum. The topic recently was the framework of dinosaur fossils. Robert found that several classmates were friends with him on the first day. To be frank, he wanted to make friends with them too. It was winter, but the air in the campus was fragrant because of winter sweets. Breathing it, Robert felt as if he was set free from a cage. Suddenly, he heard some cry, "Help!" It was from the lake. The ice of the lake fractured under the weight of the students skating on it. It was frequent in the winter. And one of them fell into the lake. The other students were frightened by this.

She was proud of her brave son but could not help crying.
A frog and a squirrel were neighbors. There was a fundamental difference between the two of them. The squirrel was diligent while the frog was lazy. In autumn, the frog made fun of the squirrel's diligence. He said, "Don't make so much fuss over saving your food." The squirrel answered, "I only fulfill my obligation to build up a reserve fund. The main function of it is to help me to get through the winter. If you make a fuss of yourself in fruitful autumn, you will regret it in the cold winter." The frog frowned at her words and became furious. So he left without a goodbye. The winter came. The squirrel had no expensive furniture, but she had a furnace to keep her warm. Furthermore, she had a beautiful fur overcoat. Her house furnished everything that was needed for one's life. For example, the fuse-box was in the kitchen. Coal was used as fuel. Fried pine nuts were prepared for her dinner. On the contrary, the frog went to and fro on the frontier, looking for something edible. The ground was covered with frost. The terrible weather frustrated his hopes of finding food. He was too tired and hungry to walk any further.The next day, he was found dead, frozen. The squirrel attended the frog's funeral and felt very sorry for him.
Mr. Adams's pictures about the Galaxy were shown in a famous gallery. He was a genius and he won his fame very early. And it was generous of him to contribute a lot of money every year. The lamps of the gallery were full of gaseous neon, which made the light colorful. The opening ceremony was the biggest gathering of the season. A galaxy of artists attended it. All of them wore in nice garments. At the same time, a gang of gays was on the way to the gallery. In general, there was a generation gap between the gays and their parents. Furthermore, some people regarded them as garbage. This hatred was generated by prejudice. In fact, one could not generalize a conclusion from a few facts. Studies showed that a person's *** intention was decided by his or her genes. Fortunately, a new opinion was being generalized in this regard. That is, the ethics should be geared to the society's needs. These men were gay at the thought of seeing the show when suddenly a gear of the generator was broken. They gambled to drive the car to the garage for repair before their gasoline had been used up. A worker fixed their car and added 2 gallons of fuel to their car by using a gauge. Soon, the car galloped along the road again like a horse. Twenty minutes later, they arrived at the gallery, gasping for breath. All of the people including Mr. Adams gazed at them with surprise. But as a genuine gentleman, he welcomed them sincerely.
The school was said to be haunted by a giant ghost. A student did encounter it. The news got around quickly. Somebody did not see what the student got at, so he got down what he saw to get his encounter across. "That evening, after I got through my geometry examination, I got around to doing my geography homework. That was the duty I could not get out of. I got down to some geographical questions. However, I have more interest in geology. And I will get around to explore more places. Ok, I get back to the subject. My homework was getting along much better. Somebody called my name, and I saw a ghost getting in the classroom while gesturing at me! I got off the classroom as quickly as I could. It was surprising that the ghost moved aside to let me get by. I climbed to the top of a tree. The ghost could not get at me, so he waited. How on earth did I get into such a ridiculous situation? I knew I could not let the ghost get the better of me. If only I could get out of my timidness, I would feel better. I managed to get over my fear then got through to the police with my mobile phone. The police car came soon. The policemen got off the car. They got together under the tree. The ghost got away. Then I could get down from the tree. I went home. I got a cold that night. Colds are spread by germs. I got over my illness very slowly."
It was winter morning. The rising sun looked liked an orange globe. It glittered in the gigantic sky. Its light glared on the ice. The skaters glided gracefully over the ice. Charles glorified the glorious scene. There was a glow of health in his face. He put on his gloves then went to work. Charles was a gifted technician. He was a glory of his profession. No one knew he was a business spy. He didn't give himself away so far. The secretary gave out newspapers. He glanced at the headlines in it. Then he saw one of them, "It was criminal to give away business secrets!" Charles glared at the newspaper, feeling gloomy about his future. Though the air-conditioner gave off warm air, he felt cold. A glimpse of his face would tell you that he was worried. He gave back the newspaper to the secretary. Finally, Charles gave in. He gave up his criminal mind. His evilness gave way to his conscience. He made up his mind to give himself up. So he wrote a letter and then glued a stamp onto the envelope. Next, he sent it to the police.

Two years ago, the state went through a test. Schistosomiasis was popular in M state. A female doctor went deeply into it. She went through many documents then invented a kind of medicine that was good for it. She managed to go without others' help. Somebody gossiped that she grabbed at the opportunity of becoming famous. But in fact she did it out of the goodness of her heart. There were enough medicines to go around. So schistosomiasis had been wiped out for good in M state. To appreciate the doctor, Mr. Carson visited her, and two assistants went along with him. He wore a new tie to go with his suit. The police examined their car and allowed them to go ahead. The doctor was a graceful woman. She went for classical music. Also, she went in for playing golf. She played golf as good as a professional. She even went for the golf championship that year. They talked and Mr. Carson knew something about her father. The doctor's father had no head for business, and he went under. He had gone off to Edinburgh. The candle had gone out and Mr. Carson said goodbye to the doctor. But he had made his mind to go after her. He was not the sort of man who would go back on his word. Two years went by, and they married.
Davy was a Greek. He was a graduate of Athens University. He learned a lot of things in the university. For example, the grammar teacher stressed grammatical rules in each lesson. The physics teacher drew a graph to explain gravity. Davy made progress gradually. The commencement was held in the grand hall. That was the gravest occasion Davy had ever taken part in. Each graduate behaved with gravity at it. The gracious principal made a speech. His hair had turned gray, so he put grease on it to make it shiny. Davy was assigned to the countryside. He was granted many privileges to cultivate crops. At that time, corn was the most important grain in his village. But the greedy birds kept eating it. It seemed that they took it for granted. The peasants could not bear wasting a grain of rice. To solute the problem, Davy cultivated a new kind of corn which the birds disliked its taste. The peasants were grateful to him for what he did. To show their gratitude, they gave him a big basket of grapes. A girl gave him a gold necklace of ten grams to express her love. If Davy's mother knew it from the grave, she would feel happy for him.
