5 In the West Bottom we raised watermelons and muskmelons for the market, but the house melon-and-garden patch was back of the barn on the edge of the cane field. One day I took a corn knife from the tool shed and went out to get me a watermelon for my own use. I was forbidden to carry a corn knife, which had a blade longer than my arm. But it was the best thing there was for cutting a melon.

6 But when I looked, there was a rattler. I knew all about rattlers never being supposed to strike without warning. And I knew the sound of a rattler as well as I knew the notes of a quail. It was figured later that maybe this one didn’t have time to rattle. I must have stepped right into his mouth. I lit out for the house, yelling. I was sure I was going to die. That was all I could think of.strikefigured Mamma whipped off her apron and tied the strings around my leg above the knee. She made me lie on the sofa in the front room and put Martha to watch me. There was not a man on the place or a horse in the lot. The nearest habitation was Mr. Howell’s, but he had no horse.

When she got there, she found that Martha had taken off the apron strings because I had cried that they were too tight. Mamma put them back, yanking them so tight that I screamed.made for Then mamma went to the porch to watch the road from town. Following the line between the Anderson and the Howell claim, the road ran along the crest of a rise so that you got the silhouette of anything that passed over it. I could always pick out our buggy and Tom, especially with papa driving. Anxious to get his nose in the manger, Tom would break into a gallop if you would let him and papa always did.

8 The Snake Bite Herb Anderson’s instructions had been first to find Papa. If he couldn’t do that right away, to find Dr. McKenzie. If he couldn’t find him, to find Dr. Field or some other doctor. Mamma was watching to see whose rig would show up. Every now and then she would come inside and try to get me to stop yelling. At length she said “It’s your father.

19 赫伯 · 安德森的意见是首先找爸爸,如 果他不在就找麦肯斯医生,再不成就找 菲尔德或别的医生。 妈妈一边盯着看谁的马先出现,一边 不时地进屋安慰我。 终于,妈妈说道: “ 你爸爸来了。 ”

31 Dictation  Script of the Dictation A pet is an animal tamed and kept as a favorite and treated with love. The range of animals kept by people as pets today is very wide. For example, rabbits, mice, goldfish, pigeons, horses, pigs, or even snakes are kept as pets by different people. However, dogs and cats are still the most popular pets, and about half the households in Britain own one or the other. The importance of pets in British life is reflected in many ways. In the past, landowners liked to be portrayed with their dogs and horses and many such pictures can be seen in art. In many families, pets are regarded as family members. That’s why British people often say “Love me, love my dog.”
