一、【Text】课文

 

empty. Mr Taylor, the owner of a jewellery shop was admiring a new window display. Two of his assistants had been working

busily since 8 o'clock and had only just finished. Diamond necklaces and rings had been beautifully arranged on a background

of black velvet. After gazing at the display for several minutes, Mr Taylor went back into his shop.

The silence was suddenly broken when a large car, with its headlights on and its horn blaring, roared down the arcade. It came

to a stop outside the jeweler's. One man stayed at the wheel while two others with black stockings over their faces jumped out

and smashed the window of the shop with iron bars. While this was going on, Mr Taylor was upstairs. He and his staff began

throwing furniture out of the window. Chairs and tables went flying into the arcade. One of the thieves was struck by a heavy

statue, but he was too busy helping himself to diamonds to notice any pain. The raid was all over in three minutes, for the men

scrambled back into the car and it moved off at a fantastic speed. Just as it was leaving, Mr Taylor rushed out and ran after it

throwing ashtrays and vases, but it was impossible to stop the thieves. They had got away with thousands of pounds worth of

diamonds.
