On a Friday night, a poor young artist stood at the gate of the New York railway station, playing his violin. The music was so great that many people stopped to put some money into the hat of the young man.
The next day, the young artist came to the same place, and put his hat on the ground gracefully. Different from the day before, he took out a large piece of paper and laid it under his hat. Then he began to play the vio-
lin. It sounded more pleasant than ever.
Soon he was surrounded with people who were at-
tracted by the words on that paper. It said, “Last night, a gentleman named George Sang put an important thing into my hat by mistake. Please come to claim (认领) it soon.”
After about half an hour, a middle-aged man rushed through the crowd to the violinist and said, “Yes, it’s you. I knew that you were an honest man and would certainly come here.” The young violinist asked calmly, “Are you Mr George Sang?” The man nodded. The violinist asked, “Did you lose something?”“It’s a lottery ticket,” said the man. The violinist took out a lottery ticket on which George Sang’s name was seen. “Is it?” he asked. George nodded and took the lottery ticket and kissed it, then danced with the violinist.
The violinist was a student at an arts college and had planned to attend advanced studies in Vienna. Later his classmate asked the violinist, “At that time you needed money to pay the tuition and you had to play the violin in the railway station every day to make money. Why didn’t you keep the lottery ticket for yourself?”
The violinist said, “Although I don’t have much money, I live happily. But if I lose honesty I won’t be happy forever.” Through our lives, we can gain a lot and lose so much. But being honest should always be with us.

The smallest animal with a backbone(脊椎) known to science, a fish from the carp family, has been discovered in the peat swamps (沼泽)of Indonesia. Mature(成熟的)females of the fish species (种类)Paedocypris reach just 7.9mm in length.
The species was discovered in the highly acidic (酸性的) peat swamps of the Indonesian island of Sumatra by a team led by Ralf Britz, a zoologist at the Natural History Museum in London.
“This is one of the strangest fish that I’ve seen in my whole career,” Dr Britz said. “It’s tiny, and it lives in acid. I hope that we’ll have time to find out more about them before their habitat disappears completely.”
The species lives in dark tea-colored swamp waters, which are 100 times more acidic than rainwater. Although these swamps were once thought to be inhabited by very few animals, recent research has shown that they are home to a highly different range of species that occur nowhere else.
The peat swamps were damaged by forest fires in 1997, and are also threatened by agriculture. The scientists behind the discovery said that several populations of Paedocypris had already been lost.
“Many of the peat swamps we surveyed (调查)throughout South-East Asia no longer exist,” Dr Britz said. “Populations of all the miniature(微型的) fish of peat swamps have decreased or disappeared.”
Details of the discovery are published today in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, Series B.
68. Which of the following would be the best title for the passage?
A. The Strangest Fish
B. Acidic Peat Swamps
C. Strange Species
D. The Smallest Backbone Animal
69. Where does the smallest backbone animal live?
A. It lives in highly acidic rainwater.
B. The species lives in the acidic waters of dark tea-coloured swamps.
C. It was put in the Natural History Museum in London.
D. Its habitat disappears completely.
70. Dr Britz’s words imply____.
A. the habitat will be more after a period of time
B. many peat swamps that they surveyed have already survived
C. he wants to find out more about them before their habitat disappears
D. he wants to have a further research
71. According to the passage, the forest fires in 1997 have led to the fact that ____.
A. many places where these animals lived have been damaged
B. the population of the species has increased
C. there are many animals in the acidic peat swamps today
D. agriculture doesn’t affect the living space of these animals
Americans are more socially isolated than they were 20 years ago, and nearly a quarter of people said they had “zero”close friends with whom to discuss personal matters. More than 50 percent named two or fewer confidants (密友), most often immediate family members, the researchers said.
“This is a big social change, and it shows something that’s not good for our society，” said Duke University Professor Lynn Smith. She said that it showed there was a surprising drop in the number of close friends people had since 1985. At that time, Americans most commonly said they had three close friends whom they had known for a long time, saw often, and with whom they shared a number of interests. They were almost likely to name four or five friends and the relationships often sprang from their neighborhoods or communities (社区).
Ties to a close network of friends create a social safety net that is good for society, and for the individual. People were not asked why they had fewer intimate (亲密的) ties, but Smith said that part of the causes could be that Americans are working more, marrying later, having fewer children, and commuting (往返上班) longer distances. “It’s one thing to know someone and exchange e-mails with him. It’s another thing to say, ‘Will you give me a ride out of town with all of my possessions and pets?’ and ‘Can I stay with you for a couple or three months?’” Smith said. “Worrying about social isolation is not a matter of nostalgia (怀旧之情) for a warm and comfortable past. Real things are strongly connected with that，” added Harvard University Professor Robert Putnam, author of Bowling Alone, a book on the decline of American communities. He suggested flexible work schedules would allow Americans to tend both personal and professional lives.
72. What’s the passage mainly talking about?
A. American social isolation.
B. Americans have “zero” close friends.
C. Ties to a close network of friends are good for society.
D. Flexible work schedules change Americans’ lifestyle.
73. From the second paragraph we can learn that people tend to ____.
A. be closer than before
B. be less close than before
C. have more friends than before
D. have more family members than before
74. Which of the following is the possible cause of American social isolation?
A. They work more.
B. They don’t marry.
C. They have more children.
D. They spend too much time on relaxation.
75. According to Professor Robert, ____.
A. there could be four possible causes for American social isolation
B. worrying about social isolation is not a matter of nostalgia
C. flexible work schedules don’t affect (影响) Americans’ way of life
D. American social isolation is only a small social problem

May 29 th, Saturday, Sunny
Today we had a trip to Beidaihe. We set out at 6:00am and three hours later we got there by train. As soon as we got off the train we began to play games on the sands and swam in the river happily. After that, we had lunch in a restaurant. In the afternoon, we walked along the beach to Nandaihe and we took a lot of photos there. Time passed quickly and we had to leave. It was half past five when we returned school safely. What a good trip we had today!
When a holiday is coming, we always plan for it ahead of time: how to enjoy it. Generally, we have a trip as a better choice.
Although traveling is enjoyable, we, 21st-century senior students, must have in mind: some Dos and Don’ts during a trip. If we have a trip in a tourist group, we must be polite and friendly to others. While having sight- seeing, we should care for our nature and our environment. For instance, in some temples where some historic figures are buried, we can’t speak loudly. Besides the above, I think the most important thing is safety. We must keep in mind: Safety comes first.
Our traveling and our environment should combine perfectly, instead of destroying each other.
