On April 14, 1868, two ships were scheduled to leave the busy port of New York, bound for Europe. The
night before, their captains met and had dinner together. The dinner was very ordinary and certainly neither man
knew he would soon have a role in one of the world's greatest mysteries.
The two ships left the next morning. Their names: the Dei Gratia and the Marie Celeste. After several
days at sea, Morchouse, the captain of the Dei Gratia, sighted the Marie Celeste, and he immediately recognised
that something was wrong. It was not moving and there was no sign of life on deck. Morehouse and a few of his
men took a small boat to the Marie Celeste to investigate. They searched every part of the ship and found nothing not a man, dead or alive, no sign of illness or combat, no disruption. In fact, everything was in good order, as if the
crew had left ten minutes before. There was a ten-pound note on a table, with an unfinished letter home near it, a
freshly washed stack of clothes in the laundry, and plenty of food and water. These signs of normal, everyday life
on an empty ship were the strangest feature of the mystery. What had happened to the captain and crew? If they
had been attacked, why was everything still in its place and why were there no signs of a struggle? If they had died
suddenly from a disease, where were their bodies?
Investigators searched for the answers to these questions for years and years, but they came up with
nothing. The fate of the men of the Marie Celeste remains as one of the unanswered questions of our time.
…… 1. The captains of the Dei Gratia and the Marie Celeste planned their meeting at sea on the day before their
departure.
…… 2. They had a big meeting and finished very late that night.
…… 3. The two ships set sail for Europe on the same day.
…… 4. Captain Morehouse was not surprised to see the Marie Celeste unoccupied.
…… 5. The crew of the Dei Gratia completed a thorough search of the Marie Celeste.
…… 6 The captain of the Marie Celeste left a letter explaining what had happened.
…… 7. The captain and crew had left 10 minutes before for a special mission.
…… 8. The crew of the Marie Celeste had used all their food and water and died of starvation.
…… 9. Morehouse and his men were mystified to find the contents of the Marie Celeste undisturbed.
…… 10. Later investigations finally solved the mystery of the Marie Celeste.

5. Reading
Bill Jarvis took over our village news agency at time of life when most of us only want to relax. He just
thought he would like something but not too much to do, and the news agency was ready-made. The business
produced little enough for him, but then Bill was a chap who only wanted the simplicity and order and regularity of
the job. He had been a long-serving sailor, and all his life had done everything by the clock.
Every day he opened his shop at six am to catch the early trade; the papers arrived on his door-step before
that. Many of Bill's customers were city workers, and the shop was convenient for the station. Business was tailing
off by ten o'clock, so at eleven sharp Bill closed for lunch. It was hard luck on anybody who wanted a paper or
magazine in the afternoon, for most likely Bill would be down on the river bank, fishing, and his nearest
competitor was five kilometres away. Sometime in the afternoon, the evening papers landed on the door-mat and at
four o'clock Bill reopened. The evening rush lasted till seven, and it was worthwhile.
He lived in a flat above the shop, alone. Except in very bad weather, you always knew where to find him in
the afternoons, as I have said. Once, on a sunny afternoon, I walked home along the river bank from a shopping
trip to the village. By my watch it was three minutes past four, so I was astonished to see Bill sitting there on his
little chair with a line in the water. He had no luck, I could see, but he was making no effort to move.
"What's wrong, Bill?" I called out from the path. For answer, he put a hand inside his jacket and took out a
big, golden object. For a moment I had no idea what it could be, and then it suddenly went off with a noise like a
fire engine. Stopping the bell, Bill held the thing up and called back: "Ten to four, you see, and this is dead right."
He stood up then and began to wind in his line. I had never known anyone carry a brass alarm clock round with
him or her before.

3. Why did Bill open the shop so early in the day?
A. He liked to do as much as possible before he went to work.
B. Bill was never sure of the time.
C. The shop had to be open when the morning papers came
D. It was then that he did a lot of business.
4. We understand from the passage that the shop closed for lunch ________
A. At eleven o'clock more or less.
