I don‘t often lose things and I’m especially careful with money， so I was quite surprised when I reached for my wallet and found it wasn‘t there. At first， I thought I might have left it at home. Then I remembered taking it out to pay for the taxi， so I knew I had it with me just before I walked into the restaurant. I wondered if it had slipped （滑） out of my pocket while I was eating dinner. Thinking about that possibility， I turned and walked back to the table where I had been sitting. Unfortunately， there were several people sitting at the table at the time， so I called a waiter and explained to him that my wallet had fallen out of my pocket while I was sitting at the table a few minutes earlier. I had the waiter go over to the table to see if my wallet was on the floor. While the waiter was looking for it， the manager of the restaurant came up to me and asked me if anything was wrong. I didn’t want to get a lot of people involved in it， but I knew I had to get the wallet back. I told the manger what had happened. He asked me to describe the wallet to him， and then he insisted that I report the missing wallet to the police. I told him that I didn‘t particularly want to get the police involved in it； besides， I was in a hurry as I had an appointment with my doctor in just a few minutes. I explained to him that my biggest worry at the moment was how I was going to pay the bill. He told me not to worry about that. He had me write down my name and address， and he said he would send me a bill.

Crime has its own cycles （周期）， a magazine reported some years ago. Police records that were studied for five years from over 2，400 cities and towns show a surprising link between changes in the season and crime patterns.
The pattern of crime has varied very little over a long period of years. Murder reaches its high during July and August， as do rape and other violent attacks. Murder， moreover， is more than seasonal： it is a weekend crime. It is also a nighttime crime： 62 percent of murders are committed between 6 pm and 6 am.
Unlike the summer high in crimes of bodily harm， burglary has a different cycle. You are most likely to be robbed between 6 pm and 2 am on a Saturday night in December， January or February. Which is the most uncriminal month of all？ May—though more dog bites are reported in this month than any other month of the year.
Possibly， high temperature and humidity （湿度） bring on our strange and terrifying summer actions， but police officials are not sure. “There is， of course， no proof of a connection between humidity and murder，” they say. “Why murder‘s high time should come in the summertime we really don’t know.”

A. There are more robberies in May.

The police had moved quickly to block off the area. Now Jim stood across the street with the other students， 61 in great disbelief as the fine department fought to gain control of the fire. But it 62 hopeless. Heavy smoke rose 63 every opening. Already flames were licking out of the ground-level 64 second-story windows of the old school building. Suddenly， the east end of the building exploded 65 flames. The noise was so loud that 66 Jim， who had serious hearing problem， could hear a faint roar.
Across the street 67 the school grounds Mr. MacIntire， the principal， was shouting to the fire chief. Jim read his lips， missing 68 of what he said because of the distance but getting 69 than enough to understand.
“…eight students and a teacher… in a basement room… trapped！”
The fire chief shook his head. The firefighters had tried to 70 the building three times and three times they had failed. There was no hope at all now.
I stayed there at that job for about five or six weeks and I learned from him a 71 to study， and then I went off to other jobs. I have never been 72 to thank him properly because I never knew then what an enormous contribution he was 73 to my life. He was wonderful， and a little bit of him is 74 everything I do.
After that， I always looked 75 the meaning of words， and when I 76 into words I couldn‘t pronounce and didn’t understand， I would work 77 them until I began to understand. I would 78 going over and over the sentence they were in， and after a while I would begin to get an idea of 79 the word meant just by repeating the sentence. That became a habit， 80 did all the other things he left me with.
